Cazenovia, New York
A Huge Thank you to Brian and Morgan for making the arrangments for my brother in laws services as stress free as possible. Also for being so open to the many requests. My husband and I would highly recommend this funeral home to other families as the need arises.

I was honored to have my wife's funeral service handled by this funeral home. The facility is a historic house in a historic town. The house is kept in A-1 condition and feels like a home not a funeral chapel. Many of the folks that attended the calling hours commented on how the presentation was as it made you think your were just visiting an old freind. We also had several small childern in the family who were there and the staff took care of thier needs by providing coloring books and reading material in a seperate room off from the main viewing room. They attended to the childern while the family was allowed to visit with guests. I was very very impressed by the professionalism of the staff from the time they came to pick up the remains to the constent contct with us to know if there was anything that could be done. I would highly recommend this funeral home to anyone who is looking to pre arrange a funeral or have the need for one at the time of the passing of a loved one.

On behalf of 8 daughters and a mother, we want to thank Coopers and Jake Hebdon for the wonderful, very professional services provided. Jake came to the house and picked up my father. From the minute he walked in the door he made my 80 year old very comfortable. We told her he was "Jake from State Farm", she knew that commercial well. Then I found out that I actually worked with his mother and had known all about his career change and adventures in his new career. From that point on he dealt very well addressing questions and answers to my mother instead of all the girls. He answered her questions in a way she understood. She was able to make her own decision with as much time as she needed. She chose cremation but, did not want the ashes at the service. He took our special pictures to the floral shop so flowers could be arranged around them. He also contacted the Veterans associations and set up the arrangements for the military service. He even took some calls throughout the couple days with last minute questions we each had. I am disabled and can not walk or stand for only a few minutes at a time. Cooper's have an elevator which makes it very convenient for anyone with ambulation difficulties. I was able to use a cane instead of a walker or wheelchair because of the elevator convenience. The room was large and our party fit in there nicely. We felt all together. Some funeral homes have 2 small rooms and the people in the back feel separated and blocked off. In those visual ability is poor as well as hearing what people are saying. We were told by a person in attendance that this was the best funeral they have attended. I agree, my 2 brother in laws were allowed to perform the service. The floral shop owner is a long time friend of my parents. Like I said, we appreciate everything they did to make this day easier for us and they succeeded. I would recommend Cooper's Funeral Home to anyone.

I recently attended a funeral service on a 90 degree day and the funeral director did not provide air conditioning to the family and relatives attending the funeral. When I inquired as to why there was no AC on, the funeral director said it was broken. He further stated why was I asking now when the funeral was coming to a close. His attitude was dismissive and he lied because I felt air coming from one vent located in the entry of the funeral room. I would never recommend this funeral service as their customer service clearly is lacking.
