Re: Flor E., Pestana

Ms. Kowalski,
I would like to thank you for everything you have done for my mother, she looked beautiful. Burying my mother was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. The process is overwhelming, but you made it manageable and I appreciate that. You even took the time to make me laugh, not many would do that.
I know the grieving process will take time, but I will get through it, one day at a time.
Thank you for making everything less overwhelming,.

Dear Terry,

You became a part of our lives on November 15, 2020 after the most unbearable tragic loss a family could ever face. From the day of making the first arrangements to the very end and even to now, you have been a true blessing. The way you deal with people, especially those who are grieving, is such a gift. You are truly "one in a million". You have such a beautiful heart and soul!! I don’t know if you realize how special you really are.

We have so many reasons to thank you, where do I begin? We are truly at a loss for words to express our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation. You really go above and beyond!! You deserve so much recognition for all that you do. There are not enough words of gratitude and appreciation for all your efforts to comfort my family over the loss of our brother, Joey and our sister Maria. You are such a strong, loving, professional, kind and thoughtful individual. You do such an amazing job with great compassion, dignity, love, professionalism and attention to detail. You truly have a special touch and your words are so very compassionate and true to the heart.

Your advice, suggestions, guidance and most of all your patience when dealing with all of us, when we so desperately needed it navigated us through the MOST difficult time of our lives. You heard everything we said and wanted and even heard what wasn’t able to be said but just felt. Your intuition is amazing. All I can say is WOW! Words could NEVER truly express our gratitude for all you have done for our family during this difficult time. Thank you so much for making Joey’s and Maria’s services so special regardless of these unexpected times. You put us all at ease during such a difficult time, answering all our questions and fulfilling all our requests and wishes. You were there EVERY step of the way with each one of us. Thank you for your most kind and sincere words of comfort, advice and heartfelt prayers.

Thank you so very much for the lovely blanket of Joey, it brought so many unexpected tears to my eyes. I will treasure it always. It is such a loving tribute to Joey. It was an "unexpected gift" at a "unexpected time", and we are all deeply appreciative to you. I was really touched by your thoughtfulness and kindness, and most importantly your words on the package when it arrived. Your heartfelt words brought tears to my eyes before I even opened it.

Our entire family would like to thank you and your staff for the great way you handled the funerals of my siblings. A huge thank you for all your kindness, compassion and thoughtfulness for these exceptionally difficult times. I honestly couldn’t have picked a better person to entrust my siblings to. You are, without a doubt, EXEPTIONAL and AMAZING!! Everything was so beautifully done and honored both, Joey and Maria, so perfectly.

My family and I will be forever grateful. May God bless you for all you do to bring such comfort and ease to all families you encounter, especially ours! We will NEVER forget YOU and all that you have done.

We all thank you sincerely from the bottom of our hearts.

My mom will treasure it forever, as well as we. Our Dad meant so much to us and we miss him tremendously, but having all the beautiful memories we shared helps us get through. He was such a wonderful human being.
It was an absolute pleasure and blessing from God, to have worked with you in the preparation of our Dad's funeral. You helped us so much with everything and we know we wouldn't have done it so smoothly and beautifully without your services. Thank you so much!

Dear Terry,
I'm embarrassed to say this thank you card is so long overdue, but just as sincere as if I had written it in a timely matter.
Thank you so much for the professional services you provided for our Dad's funeral. Your advice, suggestions, guidance and most of all your patience when dealing with the 5 of us. Wow! You deserved a gold star!
As usual everything was perfect. The planning, viewing, kind, comforting words and prayers, funeral, church arrangements and military involvement. What a send off for such a special and wonderful father and grandfather! Our Mom would have approved and I'm sure she was smiling down from heaven.
Thank you Terry for the funeral throw that you mailed to my house. I have to admit we didn't open it yet. i'm waiting for all of us to be together so we can admire its beauty at the same time. If it's anything like the one you gave us after Mom's passing it must be outstanding and priceless!
Even after Dad's funeral you continue to be a source of information always responding to my texts and offering good advice and your wealth of knowledge.
On behalf of the entire Rozborski Family we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Wishing you a healthy, happy and blessed New Year!

Dear Terry,
Hi. Hope you and your family are well.
I know Arleen sent you a"Thank you" card already, but I feel your "amazing gift" also warrants one from me.
The five of us sisters got together recently in August to attend a meeting. Arleen brought your unopened package with her, and asked Nancy to open it, because Mom called Nancy "her friend", in the hospital E.R.
I have never seen such a beautiful tapestry blanket. It brought tears to my eyes, then, as it does now, while writing you this note, It is such a wonderful remembrance and celebration of the love our parents shared with each other, and also shared with us.
Thank you, Terry, for your kindness, thoughtfulness, and generosity. It was an "unexpected gift" at a "unexpected time", and we are all deeply appreciative to you.
It was very nice seeing you at the Polish picnic on August 19th. All of you work so hard ---- preparing, cooking, baking, serving, etc. We attend every year, and specially enjoy the perogis.
The way you deal with people, especially those in bereavement, is such a gift, You are truly "one in a million". You have such a beautiful smile.
With fondest regards.

Cindy Campbell & Family
September 10, 2018

Dear Terry,
This is a very belated note, but just as sincere as if I had written it in a timely matter.
We have many reasons to thank you, where do we begin? You gave such a personalized and professional funeral service for our Mom and we appreciate your efforts. As I've said many times before "no one does a funeral like Terry". You really go above and beyond, for example calling each person by name to pay their final respects o the deceased. You also spent a long time with us and explained everything in detail. We value your thorough explanations and patience with us.
Thank you also for the lapel pin that you mailed for my father. It was a nice gesture.
The package that you sent to my home (for my Dad) wasn't opened until a few weeks ago. I wanted the 5 of us sisters to be together so we could see the gift at the same time. The afghan with the two photographs of Mom and Dad at different stages of their 67 year marriage is beyond beautiful! What an awesome and everlasting tribute to a wonderful Mom!
In closing just want to thank you Terry and the Kowalski Funerarl Home for your superb service, kindness, professionalism, wisdom, friendship, etc., etc., etc.
With love and gratitude.

Arleen Zelonis & the Rozborski Family
September 7, 2018

Dear Terry,
Where do I begin? I've saved your card for last, because you are the one who deserves the most recognition.
On behalf of the whole Rozborski Family, I extend to you our deepest thanks for handling our Mother's funeral arrangements. You made Mom look so nice after suffering such a horrid death. She was the most kind, beautiful woman I knew, both inside and out.
Because of your expertise, everything was very organized and ran so smoothly.
You are personable - you made all of us seem special (family members, friends, visitors, etc.). We respect you, and the time and advice you gave us. Thanks for "smoothing things over" among us five sisters.
Your nephew Nick is a great young man, I'm glad you are his mentor, He's learning from the "Best", the very best! Thanks again.
Very fondly,

We are most grateful to you for beautiful funeral services that you provided for my dear husband Jan.  With your simple magic touch you did help to lighten our burden.  Thank you for a little pin "the light of a star" which I will wear in memory of Jan.
In my wildest dreams I would not expect a gift of such a beautiful, unusual blanket.
I am really touched by your thoughtfulness.

There are no words to express how appreciative I am for everything you did to make the most awful event in my life bearable.  You were thoughtful and kind, allowing me to proceed at a comfortable pace.

It makes me so happy that my unconditional love for Joe is something others can see.  He is forever my always-

Dear Terry,
Thank you so much for everything you did so that my Mom had the same funeral as my Dad.  You did a wonderful job.  I'm very grateful for it.

We are at a loss for words to express our heartfelt gratitude.  Losing someone you love is difficult.  Planning a funeral is difficult. You, however, made all the difference with your warmth, kindness, advice, professionalism and your hands on service to our family.  Your kind expression of sympathy, kindness and thoughtfulness is deeply appreciated and gratefully acknowledged by our family.
Renee, Jim, John, Bob, Jane and the Sarnicki family

Thank you so much.

Thank you so much for the lovely pin.  I put it right on when it came today.  I can't thank you enough for the wonderful job you did.  John looked so peaceful.
Thank you for all the kind words you said about me.

You are truly a wonderful person.  Thank you with all of your help and the little "extra" things you do that do not go unnoticed.
With great appreciation for you!
Janet Dombrowski

Thank you for everything you did for my mother.  You made her final services inspirational.  Your words about her captured my mothers spirit.  At other services I recently attended, I noticed their lacking of the warmth I felt from you.  Everything you did was of the highest quality & very professional while still being supportive and kind during that difficult time.
The throw you sent is truly magnificent.  It made me cry, but it also made me remember all the wonderful times we shared with both my mother & father.  I will cherish it forever.
Maryellen & the Family of Ann Biesiada

Dear Terry,

Peter Shubiak

On behalf of my sister Maryla Miskowicz and the entire family I would like to say Thank you for taking care of John.
As soon as we got home after the Funeral of our beloved John I thought of you - what a Special Person You are - my heart was telling me to send you a few words and express our grieving with "Thank You".
We have attended other funerals but nothing like the one you did for John with such a T.L.C. despite the weather which was not cooperating and lots of rain come down on us.
Thank God for amazing people like you blessed with such talent.
You have touched our hearts in a very special way.
May God Bless you every day with good health so you can continue to help other families in their difficult time when it arises.
PS.  You have done a wonderful job with our Mommy & Daddy and now John.  You treat everyone like family - Thank you.
Dottie Szczupakowski (Maryla sister)

I want to thank you for the beautiful service you provided for my beloved father, Alfred DaSilva,  You truly went above and beyond our expectations.  My father looked beautiful and at peace.  He looked like he did before he got sick.  Your speeches at the wake and cemetery put things into perspective and provided us comfort.  We loved how you called guests up by name and pointed things out on all the picture boards.  The book marks were an unexpected treasure.  Thank you for all the personal touches - it truly made a difference!!
Michelle DaSilva-Cortese and Family of Alfred DaSilva

Words can not describe the joy you brought to our family by sending the beautiful blanket.  I will cherish it forever.
Thank you,

Dear Terry,
On behalf of my extended family, and myself I would like to say Thank You for your guidance and assistance in preparing the arrangements for the funeral and burial of my Uncle Robert.  For many years, you and your family have been there for us in our times of mourning.  For that, I am extremely grateful and feel you will forever be a part of my family.  Stating that I was happy with your service is an understatement ad I would gladly recommend your funeral home to other family members and friends if the need arises.  Once again, thank you for being there for my family and me, and for making those difficult times more bearable.

The care that you showed & the personal touch that you gave meant so much to me.
I know my Mom was smiling down with her approval.  I definitely know she would have loved the way you did her hair!
I'm sure I will see you again; but if you're ever in Jupiter, call & join us for a glass of wine.
Love, Diane

Diane Colletti

Terry Kowalski has to be the most professional,competent,sociable,thoughtful,and caring person who has the unique ability of wearing many "hats" and wearing them well! We had my mother, Angelina Ubaldi Kurek Ervin, living with us in Texas.  When she passed we had no idea as to how to have a funeral for her in Jersey.  Terry came to the rescue, took over, and handled all the funeral arrangements perfectly.  I actually was able to take a deep breath and relax. Mom was cremated and her cremains were placed in a box.  Terry had a beautiful cover for it and suggested we bring some photos to place on the table by the urn. Terry also gave the burial service. Terrific!

Rosemary Kurek Ulrich

Thank you for all your help during this time for me and my family,  It made everything easier and knowing I could depend on you and my family.  Please accept my deep appreciation and love.
Thank you
Anita Paserba

Dear Terry,
How very thoughtful of you.  Thank you for the tapestry blanket of my husband.  I didn't know what to expect until I fully opened the blanket.  I have never seen anything like it.  It is so very beautiful and a wonderful treasured memory.  It is displayed on my husband's favorite living room chair showing him smiling back at me.
Thank you, Terry, for preparing my husband for his journey to Heaven.
I am very grateful to you for your kindness and caring.
Helen Banko

Thank you so much for everything.
The throw is beautiful and also the continuing care books are very helpful.

Love & hugs,

Palay & Teglash Families

You became a part of our lives on January 23, 2012.  Professionalism was and still is amazing.  I remember the first time I walked into the funeral home.  I was sooooooooo scared.  You talked me right through it.  You walked me through the whole funeral prep.  Advised me on things that would be a waste of time and $.  No funeral director does that!  I greatly appreciate it!  The way you dealt with Roshorn's body was breathtaking.  His body prep was on point,  Your grief support is amazing!  I look to you even now two years later and you still provide support.  You were patient with me when I decided I wanted a grave marker.  I held on to that paperwork forever.  But you didn't rush me.  To sum it all up, you are the best.  You care about the families you service.

Rosette Shivers & Family

Dear Terry,
There are no words in the English or Polish language to tell you how grateful we feel for what you have done for our mother Maria Ciesielski, except Thank You.

We also wanted to thank you for the beautiful cover with moms' picture on it,  It is breath taking.

Thank you for all your help.

Cathy Abrahamsen

Karen Moore

Peggi Davis

Dear Terry-

I’m writing to thank & commend you on all that you did to make my dad’s funeral services so special.  It felt like you were one of the family, yet your professionalism was outstanding.  I cannot tell you how many people noticed and commented on it (and there were many people there!), or how many whom I have boasted to.

Many people are not fortunate enough to live out their true calling.  I think you are.  You made such a difficult time so special, and one that, we will always remember fondly.

Thank you again.  It meant a lot to all of us.


Karen Moore

(John Abrahamsen’s daughter)

Dear Teresa,

Thank you for every thing.  You did a nice sermon for Aunt Helen.  Thank you and your family.


Helen & Stephen Tocco

Dear Terri,

I’m writing to thank you for all of your kind words at Uncle Walter’s services.  You really reminded me of some very happy memories that I experienced as a child.  Describing the neighborhood as an “inter-family” really captured the essence of that special time.  I will miss Uncle Walter and Aunt Marion, but will always remember their love in that house in that street in that wonderful neighborhood.  Thanks again for ensuring everything went smoothly and for all of your kind words.

Warm regards,

Marion Velocci

Thank you for your kindness.  My daughter was especially touched by the throw you sent with her Grandmother’s name on it.

You are a professional & we were in such need of someone like you & grateful we found you.

JoAnn LaVista

Dear Terry,

Thanks so much for sending the photos of the marker for my parents gravesite - It looks lovely.  Again, I truly have appreciated all your efforts to make this a memorable, pleasant experience.  You've done a great job!  Our grandparents (& parents) are probably having a "toast" to all the "ado" right now!


Marsha Dodds Baumbaugh

Dearest Terry,

Thank you so much for assisting me and my family with our funeral arrangements for Bernice Giovinco.  You so generously shared your knowledge and experience to gently guide us through this emotional event.

Thank you again for everything.

God Bless You.

Thank you so very much for all of your guidance and support this past week.  You really made it easy for us to accomplish a nice ceremony for Georgine and to basically keep us all in one piece without cracking up.  A special thanks from me for the wonderful ways in which you handled my kids, talking openly about very sensitive subjects.  You have been an angel sent to us from heaven.  We will never forget your kindness, sensitivity and the amazing woman you are.


The Waseleski Family

Dear Terry,

Thank you for your kindness and gentle approach during this painful process.  Your assistance was invaluable – It was highly professional, respectful to our Mom and family and touching!

There was tremendous comfort in knowing that we had you to walk us through everything.

Best wishes to you ----- continued health & happiness


Chris Molloy

Dear Terry-

I am usually not at a loss for words, but expressing my appreciation for all of your kindness & calm during all the arrangements is finding me a little short since Thank You just doesn’t seem sufficient!

From both far & near – Florida to New Jersey everything went so smoothly!  Everyone was so pleased with the service at the gravesite.  I am disappointed we missed it – but am so very relieved that it was beautiful.

Our appreciation is boundless ---

Thank you.

Carol Ruthfield

Dear Terri

Thank you so very much for all you did for us.  God bless you all.

Hi Teri-

Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did on my father’s funeral.  While it was a difficult time, your thoughtfulness and understanding throughout, made the process much easier to bear.  Wendy, myself and our families thank you for your kind words that you spoke the day of the funeral and you really did capture the essence of my father,



Dear Terry

Words cannot describe how grateful my family and I are to you.  Your professionalism, human kindness and excellent organization were beyond our expectations.  We appreciated all of your attention to the details as well as your flexibility and care in doing the best (given the circumstances) to ensure my father had arrangements done with dignity and respect.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and may God bless you and your family.

Kind regards,

Vivian Pacheco


What can I say to Thank You for all you have done to get us thru this crazy situation.  You have the best repore and know exactly what to do.  We thank you for your help and being there for us, as always, making things so easy for us.  You are the best.

Luv Ya


Dear Terry,

There aren’t enough words to say to you how I feel about what you did for our Mother “Norma Jean”.

From the day of making arrangements to the very end – you made it all so bearable for us to deal with.  Your kindness, compassion and humor made it all feel so right.  The words you spoke, the breaks you gave us in the cost- just you being there first as our family friend meant everything.

Thank you Terry for all you did for us - our mother looked beautiful and we are forever grateful to you.  Our mother would have been so deeply touched.  To think she didn’t want to come to you because you knew her.  I don’t know what else to say - just know I am grateful.  Also, the blanket – it is absolutely beautiful and meant so much to our Dad.  We put it over the back of their loveseat which the colors match the loveseat.  If I left out anything I’m sorry – just thank you dear friend.




Thank you so much for everything you did for Jimmy – before, during & after the funeral.  I cannot express how grateful I am.  The “throw” blanket, the grieving book and the poem show just how caring and thoughtful you are – above and beyond all your help and guidance.


Dear Terry,

On behalf of our family, we would like to thank you for everything you did for Aunt Adele’s funeral.

Words cannot express our deepest feelings – your kind words of individual comfort to each and every one of us, your smiling face, beautiful speaking voice, thorough explanations, personal reflections, laminated obituary cards, etc., etc…

You certainly went above and beyond at this difficult and sorrowful time of our lives and we wish to thank you form the bottom of our hearts!

With gratitude and love,

Arlene Rozborski Zelonis and family


Thank you again for your professional services and your professionalism.

Dear Terry

I just received the throw blanket you sent.  I have put off writing thank you cards, but I felt I had to write this today.

First I want to thank you for the excellent way you orchestrated my wife’s funeral every thing was perfect and I am totally happy with the way every aspect was covered perfectly.

Second I want to commend you on attaining the perfect mixture of compassion and business that is a rare quality today.  I want to thank you for all you did.


Dennis McBride


You are a very special lady, our friends and relatives all commented on the way you greeted all of us like we were your family.  No one had ever experiences this from a funeral director before.  It was so wonderful to have this special caring at such a difficult time.  Thank you for the loving care you gave my sister Lorraine most of all.

God Bless you and thank you again for the wonderful poem you shared with us.



Thank you for everything you did to make Mike’s services so beautiful.  Everything went so smoothly and I knew he was in good hands of someone who knew and cared about him.  He really received the best – he deserved it.  When Mike passed away, we were leaving the hospital and my brother Mike said he would call the funeral home and I said Kowalski’s without even to have to think about it, with no hesitation at all.  We also appreciate all your special touches and genuine concern for us.

Joan Palay


Once again we would like to thank you for all you did.  The beautiful words that you spoke on the morning of the funeral, the copies of the letters, the Angel pins, the books that you sent and the most touching and beautiful, the words on the blanket that you also sent us.  No words can explain the deep appreciation for all you do!

Thank you & God bless you and your family!

Thanks again, you are one in a million.

Lots of Love,

You are the best.

Thank you from Jaye, Frank and the Drukas family

Dear Teresa,

I wanted to thank you for the beautiful services that you gave for my sister, Denise.  She is at peace now and watching over all of us from her special star in heaven.  Both my sister and father were most likely laughing at me when I was stuffing the balloons in my car.  They always said ---- don’t tell Donna if you need or want anything because she will always be right there for you.  And as always, I’m there for my family.

Kind Regards,

Donna Balick

Dear Terri,

Even your “faint” was handled with grace & dignity and we hope you are ok!

Thank you, Terry, for all you did and for your friendship.

Angelo & Mary Damiano

Dear Terry,

Words cannot express the amount of gratitude I feel for you and the kind and professional way you were able to help me during this unexpected and trying time.

The funeral of my uncle, Richard, was one that I thought he would have been quite proud.  The services of Father Danik were very comforting.   But, your kind words and wisdom in what you said about Richard were so true.  I have looked back into the past when they were both with us and found comfort in many great memories.  Thanks,

The burial was very moving and special.  He would have loved it.  I will never forget it.

Many Thanks again,


Geri Kindler

Dear Terry,

I am still being told how beautiful Mom’s funeral was.  Truly a celebration of life.  We all found ourselves uplifted by your kind words and wonderful way.  You speak from the heart.  I don’t know if you realize how special you are.

Dear Terry,

Please excuse any clumsiness, but this letter comes from the heart.

Thank you for all you’ve done for my family.  For being the ballast for me in corralling my family.  For restoring my Mom’s beauty.  You know what she endured.  You saw.  It was so important for my mother to always be a girl.  You gave her & her family that back to us.

You inspire devotion in whatever you do – I feel it.  How you guided us at our most lost & confused, professional, yeah, I know, but what you provided my family is unique & special & heartfelt.

When you were telling me about John Julius (I know, I know – JJ) the passions you spoke of JJ was powerful, another indication of the person you are.  Thank you, Terry, from the bottom of my heart.  I am indebted to you.


Dear Terry,

I truly want to thank you for all you did in handling my dad’s funeral arrangements so well.  You were absolutely wonderful to work with; your support (on many fronts), your professionalism, your kindness & understanding & your always being available to talk & assist with our questions were very much appreciated.  You truly helped me & my father & my family so very much.  It was a real comfort to know you handled my dad’s funeral knowing the friendship between our fathers.

Thank you so much for sending the readings from my Dad’s funeral service for me & the girls which was so thoughtful of you & much appreciated.

We want to thank you for all you did for our family.  Your professional manner in seeing the process through both times and your personal touch in guiding us in the right direction to do what we needed to do helped make this difficult time bearable.  Your comments about Mom & Dad were so personal and appreciated.  We especially loved the “feather the nest” comment.  It was so Mom!  We now know why Dad insisted on going to Kowalski’s.  Thank you again for all you did and handled for us.


Rick & Sue Babulski

Dear Teresa,

Thanks so much for all that you have done for me and my family.  The blanket with the picture of Mom & Dad is so beautiful.  Everything was so beautiful & Mom looked stunning.  Thank you for everything!

With God’s Blessings

Dear Terry

Just a note to tell you how much your caring and kindness meant to us.  I have never met a funeral director who was as caring and nice as you.

You were our footprints in the sand when we needed them the most.

I also want to thank you for the book you sent to me.  It helped a lot.  Not for just Michael but for Debbie also.

Thanks for the announcement from newspaper for Michael.  I love the saying on the back.  The tapestry you sent George was beautiful he was so taken back he could not believe it.

Terry all I can say is God Bless you.  You are a truly caring person.

It is my pleasure to know you even under these conditions.

Thank you & Love

JoAnn Corduan

Dear Terry,

I just would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did for my mother's funeral.

I received a lot of compliments and praises from family and friends.

I especially enjoyed your speeches at the funeral home and at the cemetery.

You made it feel very personal as if you were one of the family.

I am especially grateful that you suggested giving my mother's pin to my daughter.  You made her very happy to be able to have a keepsake to remember her grandmother and that she will be able to hand it down to her daughter.

Again I thank you for all your help.

Your personal touches were so greatly appreciated and we felt that you were not only the director of affairs, but an atendee of the funeral.

No one can believe how incredible that throw looks with my parent's wedding picture.  You've outdone yourself!

Thanks again for supporting and sharing with us this difficult time.  It was truly a loving homecoming for our dad, Pat.

Love ya,

Coleen and Gail Zurawski

Ms. Terry Kowalski made our journey into the unknown so much easier.  When our father died in another state, we had no idea how to manage, but Terry set our minds at ease.  She took control of all details and assured us when we most needed it.  She treated us like family and became a friend.  I can't begin to thank her for everything she did.

Dear Terry,

Thank you so much for your help and kindness during a difficult time.  My family and I appreciate all you have done.

I can't thank you enough for helping us through this very difficult time.

Very truly yours,

Your dedication and attention to detail is most certainly evident.

Your services are outstanding.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts...

Dear Terry-

Just a note to express our heartfelt gratitude for the beautiful service for our beloved husband, father and grandfather, Edmund.

We were all so touched and pleased and we know he would have been too.

From the moment the two gentlemen who picked him up, so gentle and caring and who spoke with Tyler so thoughtfully because he was visibly upset, to the moment we said our final goodbye, the compassion and care you gave our Dad and family will forever be fondly remembered.  Thank you!


The Mazurek Family


Thank you so much for everything.  Mom's funeral was beautiful - and as always, you did an outstanding job.  Mom's blanket arrived on Sat. and has been passed on to Tommy.  It is really beautiful - and the butterflies on it were perfect - for she loved them.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the nice personal touches you always seem to have during the whole funeral process.  It makes everything seem easier to handle.  Thank you again.



Where do I begin?  You are amazing at what you do, which is to make a person feel that things will be okay.  Your expertise makes everything so organized and your personal touch to many details makes a family feel comforted during a most difficult time.

You were the rock that my mom and I could depend on for support and guidance.  We appreciate everything you did for us.


Christine Urbanczyk and

Josephine Brzezicki


I'm very happy with the way you handled my wife's funeral. Everybody I talk to says it was beautiful.
