I've had a couple of close friends that have lost their mothers in the past few years. We've had many long talks about the loss they feel. What will I do without my cheerleader? Who do I talk to when I struggle with my rebellious child? How can I bring a new child into this world without my mom to s...

Funeral Home Reviews
Haverhill, Massachusetts
Berube-Comeau funeral home recently handled the services for our mother and did an outstanding job. They are very compassionate and caring and exceeded our expectations. Fran was extremely friendly and caring. The extra touches they provided made the service very personal and warm. The guests were very impressed and were commenting on how nice it was compared to other funerals that they have attended. I would highly recommend Berube-Comeau funeral home to anyone needing their services. We had used them for our father's service about five years ago and was impressed then but now they have outdid themselves. Thank you Fran and your staff for a memorable experience.

This funeral home proudly serves American Terrorist! The owner, Peter Stefan, justifies his actions based on the fact that people such as Lee Harvey Oswald, Timothy McVeigh, and Ted Bundy received funerals as well. What Stefan forgets is that Tameraln Tsarnaev was not and American citizen. If you use this funeral home, you are supporting a business that supports terrorism!

I will forever be thanking for this funeral home. When my dad passed suddenly. I had no idea what i was doing. I called this funeral home and Peter helped me in every which way possible. He made things just a little bit easier for me. At such a difficult time!

My Aunt's service was July 3, at Rural Cemetary, at the spot her flatstone was going to be placed. All services were paid up front, but as of Jan, 2013, still no stone, Woman was very rude and insensitive, when I could finally get past their answering service, saying it was MY fault for not saying where the site was! Larry saw it, he was there! The woman said I had to call the stone engraver myself-wasn't that their job? Unpleasant experience, they just don't want to admit their mistake, I talked to other directors who agree with me, as does my attorney. Avoid this place, they just don't care...

The McCarthy brothers could not have been kinder, more professional or more helpful to our family in handling the arrangements for my father. We had a real sense of the integrity of this family as they helped us during this challenging time. In this day and age it is wonderful to find a company that truly cares and listens.
