"It goes without saying that the matters with which you deal every day are delicate, but I imagine it would probably be easy to become jaded, hardened to your clients' emotional needs. That is not at all how we found our contacts with you, however. Quite to the contrary, you gently led us through the process, guiding us to the necessary courses of action and offering us as much communication as we required. Moreover, the Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home staff members were as supportive and helpful as we could have hoped on the day of the funeral and thereafter."

"This past September I watched the televised coverage of Trooper Dickson's funeral service from the Cathedral in Scranton. As most who may have been there or watched on television as I did, it was striking to see the tremendous outpouring of support, especially by the many members of law enforcement who attended the service. But what stood out the most that day was you. This was a public event as was the military funeral of Staff Sgt. Patrick Dolphin, three years ago, both received local news coverage and national acknowledgement. Yet the care, compassion, and respect that you exhibited in both of these high profile situations was the very same that you showed to me and my family as you sat at my kitchen table on three seperate occasions helping me to plan the final journies of my loved ones, helping me through their losses. So Thank You, not just from me but on behalf of the countless other "non-high profile" families that you help everyday through the most difficult times of our lives. I'm proud to know you."
"Words seem rather inadequate at the burial of my dad, but you made it easier. You handled all of your duties with compassio, concern, and kindness. You are a true gentleman.
