The loss of a parent at any age is imaginable. Words cannot adequately express the type of care provided by Iovanne Funeral Home. When I lost my mom in September, I was worried and concerned about having an open casket for viewing. Cliff completely heard my concerns and reassured that I would be able to make that decision either way in the morning of the calling hours. When I saw my mom that morning, I was struck by how peaceful and beautiful she looked. I cannot thank everyone at Iovanne Funeral Home enough for all of the attention and care during the preplanning and during the funeral. Their compassion and care is evidently in everything that the do.

When it comes to professional funeral services our family had the good fortune to work with the Iovanne team. Several years ago our family completed a pre-paid funeral contract with Billy Iovanne which served as a financially prudent item to complete as my mom grew older. The recent passing of our beloved mother was cared for with dignity and grace by the Iovanne team from mom's removal from our home to her final resting place at St. Lawrence Cemetery. No item was left undone by the Iovanne team and our family was confident in knowing that Billy had our interests always at heart during a difficult time. There certainly is a reason Iovanne's have been in the funeral service for decades; Integrity, honesty, and compassion.

Words simply cannot express our gratitude for everything you did to make my husbands funeral such a warm and comforting uplifting experience. At a time of our great sorrow, the helpfulness Mr. Bill Iovanne extended to me was most appreciated and will never be forgotten. To this day you continue to be there while I’m still grieving through this difficult time. From just a question to talking your their. I cannot day enough how pleased we were that everything was kept honoring all my husbands wishes. Simplicity and genuine compassion. On behalf of my entire family, we especially want to extend our thanks and gratitude for taking care of everything with your wonderful staff. You made my husbands final journey home more peaceful and we will forever be thankful to you. You consistently took care of every detail and concern for us. I’ll forever be grateful to you for arranging for me to see my husband for as long as I needed to a few days before his services. When I first looked at my husband he looked beautiful and at peace. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart and from our family for all your phenomenal care and concern. Sincerely, Mrs. Carolyn A. Bradley & Family

Dear Iovanne Funeral Home, When I was caring for my husband, there was no time to think of a funeral home. So a friend recommended you. At our age of course we had been to funerals where we experienced polite, formal performance. Then I met Cliff, Angie, Bill and everyone. To old souls like my family, we recognized sincerity, compassion and caring which is not seen in other homes. Eyes tell the truth and cannot be faked. At the gravest time of my life, I was blessed to find all of you. There is no thank you big enough to express the special people you are – but let me try. On behalf of me and my family, thank you for who you are, what you do for people and your genuine sincerity. God Shower Blessings on You Always.

Dear Bill & Angie, How can we ever repay you for the amazing help you were during John’s funeral. You made everything so easy. We didn’t have to worry about anything. We can’t get over how you two were there for us every second. We couldn’t have been more pleased and grateful for your attention to every detail. You have always been great friends and I’m sure John would have been humbled by his send off. You and Angie were so attentive to everyone’s needs. Angie made sure that I was okay and that I was given water to drink constantly. Everyone should be able to have the Iovanne’s to help them navigate this difficult time. We love you both and hope that we can always continue our friendship. May God Bless you always. Love, Ellen & Family

Bill, We don’t quite know how to thank you for taking such a difficult sensitive time and making it so much easier for us all. Everyone, “old school” and “new” was thrilled with how it went – our aunt and uncle, and each of us. You were gracious, tactful and I know my mom would have been pleased – she had great love and respect for your family. Our sincere thanks, Reyna, Bobby & Dorina- "Consumate Professional" Thank you so much, Dorina

Dear Billy, There are no words to express our gratitude for all you did for us during “GiGi’s” preparations. It was so much more than a business transaction! You made it personal and family based for us-as if we were planning one of our many family get-togethers. You kept us informed, which in turn, kept us calm and helped us to deal with our sorrow with dignity. Your kindness and concern was always apparent to us and is deeply appreciated. Gratefully, Carol, Anna Lynn, Stephen, Tony & Donna The Families of GiGi Galardi
