When tragedy strikes, you need people who know what to do and get it done with compassion. That's what we found here. The fairness and tenderness of Angelo & Debra Mania & staff gave us the strength to do the right things for our departed son. But, it was the little kindnesses & complete competence that made this outstanding. When one of our party had their glasses break, Debra fixed them and even returned the cleaned. Just what you need during a time like this, Exemplary service.   
Sincerely, The Lothrop Family

Recently, your Funeral Home took care of a funeral for my brother. We could not have asked for better care and professionalism. But beyond that, the attention to detail went way beyond any expectations we could have had. Everyone was compassionate and ready to accommodate our family with whatever we needed. Some things we never even thought of, but were just quietly taken care of by you. The funeral home is beautiful and well maintained, so we were proud to have people visit. We felt like we were in a beautiful home with everything done for us. Thank you Angelo and Debra, along with wonderful your caring staff for turning a very sad & difficult situation into a beautiful and meaningful ceremony.

Our 5th Annual Christmas Memorial Ceremony was held on Saturday, December 3rd, 2016. We were pleased to host this special Ceremony for families & friends who lost a loved one during the year. We started this Ceremony 5 years ago, hoping to give something meaningful back to grieving families we had come to know and care for during the Funeral Services. Those who attended over the years trusted us once again, to join us with their family members and friends to memorialize and celebrate their loved one or someone close to them. Some return each year just to be with neighbors and friends, which is so touching to us. We know that the Holidays and the socializing that comes with it can be very difficult or something you just wish you can avoid. You are not alone; we have all experienced these feelings. Some admitted that they were reluctant to come; it actually took a lot for them to come, especially back to a Funeral Home. But, they were so grateful that they did.... it helped. In fact,families asked us to please continue this tradition for other families. The Ceremony included some brief words from local Clergy, a spiritualist, live music, a Christmas Tree Lighting and Blessing with personalized ornaments which were placed on our tree for the ceremony and taken home as a gift. We also offered the invitation to our families who knew of a neighbor or friend who lost someone during the year in our community who may not have come to us and were unaware of our Ceremony; but, who thought it might help them, too. Our doors are open to all of our friends and neighbors. Sincerely, Debra and Angelo PS: The families who lost a loved one the end of 2016 will receive an invitation for December 9th, 2017.
~ September 11th, 2001~ For most of us when we look up at a clear bright blue September sky and see the awesome site of a large airliner flying by, we are reminded of that horrible day we Americans faced on September 11th, 2001. We will “always remember” because it is seared into our consciousness, we only wish we could forget, but in our hearts we know we never will; we wish it never happened, but it did. We are a changed Nation. That day reset our thinking and our way of life. It is unbearable to think about the innocent people who simply went to their office like any other day and were all murdered in an instant. And the hero’s, the brave people in uniforms who couldn’t get there fast enough in the attempt to save lives not knowing that they too, would never make it home again. The days that followed, countless individuals tried to recover the lost from the burned and crushed towers and worked tirelessly day after day until their job was done. The precious lives lost on Flight 77 crashing into the Pentagon and flight 93 after passengers fought the terrorists crashing into the ground in Pennsylvania to save so many others. The fear they must have all felt. It’s still unthinkable; we were stopped in our tracks and almost brought to our knees. So many innocent lives were taken and families were forever changed. Eventually, the way to heal as our Government encouraged, was to try to go about our daily lives. And so, reluctantly we did. When I reflect on the days that followed September 11th, I can’t help but think about the kindness perfect strangers showed each other in our every day lives. I remember the little things; holding doors opened for each other, no aggression on the road, offering help when needed, we just spoke differently to one another or maybe we were more understanding; just simple but noticeable acts of patience and kindness. When speaking with many people, they also experienced acts of kindness and more patience. They felt it. Whatever it was, it went a long way, it was healing. It helped get us through. And how ever small it may look to us now it was huge then, huge enough to remember. We pulled from each other and it felt good. I think that we would agree that people are generally kind and decent especially when the chips are down , those closest to us, as well as strangers always seem to rise to the occasion. It is our strength;our character and the small unremarkable acts of kindness, patience and understanding which defines us as special and unique…it’s the glue that holds us all together. Debra Mania
