    Dear Anthony & Opal, Thank you for all of your patience, knowledge and kindness. My sister and I could not have been more pleased with everything (and you know she's tough). As my sister kept saying "Everything Anthony did was spectacular." She was of course correct! We know our Mom would have loved the "sendoff"! We did for sure! Heidi Clark

    Dear Mr. Anthony Bongarzone, My family and I would like to thank you and your staff for taking care of the preparations for the viewing and funeral of our dear wife and mother, Cecilia T. Gadenz. During our initial contacts with your funeral home we felt that we had reached out to a supporting family, not just a business. That feeling of support, love, and care on your part was experienced throughout the whole process, the viewing, the special videos, the prayers you said before going to the church, and the funeral itself concluding at the Mount Carmel cemetery. You paid great attention to every detail and everything went so well. So again, thank you very much from the bottom of our heart. We will always recommend and encourage people who look for a sensitive, caring, and professionally competent funeral home to reach out to you. Gratelully, Renato Gadenz and family

    Dear Anthony & Staff, I received in the mail a gorgeous memorial card for my Dad. I learned that you have enrolled him for a memorial tree to be planted by the forestry service. I hope the tree grows for the same number of years he lived. I know Dad would be thrilled by this generous tribute and I am besides myself with joy. From the bottom of my heart I thank you. You have restored the dignity that dementia took from him with your spectacular funeral service and this lovely gift. God bless you always ---

    Just a quick note of appreciation for helping guide us through the days following my mother's passing. Your thoughtfulness and flexibility during this difficult time made the process much easier on our family. We were especially grateful for the time you gave us with my mother prior to her cremation. Without those moments I think the process of moving on with our lives would have been more prolonged and difficult. We have been left with the image of her at peace. Again, thanks on behalf of myself and the family for providing us with both comfort and the needed help to arrange for my mother's final wishes.

    Thank you Anthony and Mike. Your services were very much appreciated. This was a very tough time for our family--you made it easier. We will highly reccomend you with the following comments. Our Experience with Bongarzone Funeral Services They are kind, considerate and every time I called, and I called a lot, Mike answered. We had no experience at funeral planning and we appreciated all of their advice. They handled everything with care and consideration. All of this and the price was reasonable. I strongly recommend Bongarzone –Thank you Anthony and Mike. Christine, Lisa and Rick --the family of Evelyn Pellegrino ..

    I will be forever grateful to Anthony and Grace as they came to our home to escort Noel on his journey to his final resting place. That evening was made easier for me because Noel was with family. Anthony was there for me from when Noel was ill and we began to plan his funeral arrangements., such patience! Cathy helped me with my confusion regarding last minute details. The care and concern given to Noel and myself will never be forgotten.
