Foley did my friend Tim Hearn in July 2010 and it was the worst ever . He should have never let the casket be open . he should be ashamed of himself even being a funeral director

In reply to Joe Browne's complaint---Joe--We are sorry that you feel this way and understand your being upset. However, a funeral director can only advise a family on closing a casket. We cannot force a family to say yes to a closed casket. We are not ashamed of our work-we go farther than most would. We advise a family, but CANNOT force them to make a decision. We do what the family asks us to do after we have made our recommendations. We hope that your heart can rest in the fact that Tim is at peace.

This is a terrible Funeral Home. They do not know proper procedures for filing death certificates, the funeral director is downright nasty when asked for information. I could go on but there is not enough space to contain my disdain after an interaction with Anthony Mussmano. As far as a rating it would be 0 stars or maybe 00.

Richard has been a good friend for a long time. I had 2 sons that passed away (went home). Richard organized two beautiful ceremonies. He went above & beyond to help me through these tragic times. He treated my friends and family with respect & compassion. Thank you for every kindness.
