Funeral Home Reviews
Ridgewood - Queens, New York
Even though it was an extremely difficult time for our family, our experience at Morton Funeral Home/Ridgewood Chapels, was extraordinary. From my first phone call with the Funeral Director, Mr. Lanza up to and including the morning at the gravesite, the Director was compassionate, professional and generated an outstanding example of what true customer service should be. Unfortunately, I did have experiences with other funeral homes during my lifetime, and they met my expectations to a degree, but I have never had such a pleasant and comfortable and dignified experience as I and my family did at the recent wake of our beloved, departed brother and uncle. Should you need these type of services, I would highly recommend Morton/Ridgewood Chapels. I would like to thank Mr. Lanza and his Staff for meeting and exceeding our expectations!

MY MOTHER, THE LATE FANNIE DIXON'S BODY WAS PREPARED AT THE ALFRED LEWIS MORTUARY, 968 JEFFERSON AVENUE, BUFFALO, NY. I DELIVERED THE OBITUARY TO MRS. SMITH ON 1/2/13 FOR THE NEWS RELEASE. THERE WAS NO OBITUARY SENT TO THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER, THE BUFFALO NEWS. THEY DID NOT AFFORD THE FAMILY THE CUSTOMARY PRE-REVIEW OF HER BODY BEFORE THE WAKE AND FUNERAL ON 1/4/13. UPON THE FAMILY'S ARRIVAL FOR THE WAKE AND SERVICE WE WERE ALL SHOCKED TO SEE THAT SHE BORE NO RESEMBLANCE TO HERSELF AT ALL. HER FACE PROTRUDED WITH AN OVER ABUNDANCE OF PACKING, THE RUBY RED LIPSTICK THEY HAD ON HER WAS ABNORMAL AND WE ARE STILL IN A STATE OF SHOCK AND ANGER OVER THIS. THE LAST LOOK WE HAD OF HER REMAINS WILL BE A VISION THAT WE WILL NOT AND CANNOT FORGET. ALL WHO ATTENDED HER SERVICE WERE ALARMED BY HOW THEY MADE MY MOTHER LOOK LIKE AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT PERSON. WE WILL BE HAUNTED BY THIS SHOCKING MEMORY FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES. WE CANNOT GET THIS HIDEOUS VISION OF OUR MOTHER OUT OF OUR MINDS!!! PLEASE RESPOND TO 10 ELTON PLACE, BUFFALO, NY 14208. NO EMAILS PLEASE!

My deepest sympathy to the family of John Jay Schnurer. My heart goes out to the family. I will always remember John Jay with his big smile and always funny whenever he came to the house to see my kids, Dino, Fabio, Andrea and Lisa. He is gone too soon, but God bless him and my prayers are with you. Love from all the Goglia family.
