Thank you for your kindness shown to my family and myself during the recent funeral services on behalf of my husband.
Mount Laurel Home for Funerals felt just like the name says: “home.” It was a lovely service because of you and your home. You both will always have a special place in my heart.
Thank you and God bless,
Thank you for a great service to us at our time of loss. You are an amazing person with a HUGE heart. Thank you for everything.
I am writing this letter to make certain that you understand just how much my entire family appreciated all of your efforts. We could not have asked for one detail to be changed, and this comes as a result of the passion you have for your profession. Your sincerity and caring approach makes the process much more painless than it otherwise would be.
Thank you also for covering the services at the funeral site. Your words came across as not only appropriate, but sincere as well. The flowers you brought to the grave site were an extremely nice touch.
We will certainly recommend your home to our circle of friends and family.
Thank you again,
Truly, I believe it was “divine providence” that led us to you at a most difficult time for our family. Thank you for being a blessing and helping us to navigate difficult waters. May God bless you and keep each and all of you.
With appreciation always,
Warm, loving, comforting, prompt, efficient, dignified, classy, compassionate people. From the dignified removal of the body from the home, planning the viewing and funeral services, making scheduling changes due to bad weather, to choosing funeral cards/urns, the owner of this business made sure my mother was celebrated and her loved ones comforted. The pain was easier to cope with as a result.
We received fantastic service. The hall was beautiful, clean, and homey. There was plenty of parking, and we found everything we needed there. We had choices. Using Mount Laurel Home for Funerals was a GREAT decision. I highly recommend this business for those in need.
I know you think you are just doing your job, but we appreciate all the kindness you showed and all the hard work you put into my dad’s memorial service.
Finding “quality” people in any industry today is not easy – that’s what makes you extra special! Take care.
God’s best to you,
Thank you for all the kindness extended to me and to the family. Your thoughtfulness and generosity of spirit are deeply appreciated.
Dear David and Staff,
Thank you for the attention you gave in providing help and information to our family as we faced a difficult time.
All of the arrangements for the viewing and funeral went flawlessly. That was a burden you took off all of us.
Your compassion and caring were evident. We didn’t just feel like it was just one more funeral you were taking care of. I would recommend your funeral home to anyone.
Thank you once again.
God bless you all,
I can't say enough positive things about David and his staff at Mount Laurel Home for Funerals. My sister was only 52 when she lost her courageous battle with Scleroderma. We didn't know where to turn or what to do. David assisted us in so many ways. He guided us through a difficult process with compassion and understanding. While always respectful, he understood when we shared a humorous remembrance and laughed at the story. My sister's memorial was planned by her husband, her mother, and me. We each lost someone whom we loved, but in very different ways. David assisted us individually as well as collectively in the manner in which we each needed. I would highly recommend Mount Laurel Home for Funerals for anyone planning final arrangements.
David and Staff,
We would like to thank you for all that you have done during our difficult time. Your kindness and compassion was very much appreciated. My dad looked amazing!
Without question, Mt. Laurel Home for Funerals is the very best of its kind in the area. The director, David Petaccio, is helpful, warm, gracious, and professional, always going the extra mile for people who come to him. His staff is very courteous.
I would highly recommend Mt. Laurel Home for Funerals as the place to go in case of the passing of a loved one. I'm sure you won't be disappointed, and I'm confident you would be pleased at the care and help you receive.
Thank you so much for everything you did for us. Knowing that Mom is sharing in God’s eternal reward, and the kindness of others has eased our pain. Your kindness, compassion, and guidance saw us through. You were such a tremendous help in every way, and we will always be grateful for the care you gave to our Mom and to us. You and your family will always be in our prayers. Thank you.
With deep gratitude,
I wanted to thank you on behalf of myself and our family for your extraordinary efforts and professionalism with my wife’s arrangements. We received overwhelming verbal approbation from guests at the memorial service, some even taking the time afterwards to send a written message in addition to an initial condolence. One delightful aunt said that during that hour, in that lovely room, radiating my wife’s life, creativity, and spirit, everything was OK again.
While some of that was inherently my wife and our creative children, much of it was due to your support and accommodation of our needs. We felt that your personal presence, thoughts, and guidance, and most importantly willingness to provide anything we asked for, facilitated and put a professional touch on everything we proposed. Everyone who participated in making the arrangements, the setup, and the actual event asked me to express their appreciation for your kind and generous giving of time and self.
Again, thank you so much for your professionalism, hard work, and support – we are very grateful.
At a difficult time like this, it means so much to have folks like you who have the compassion and understanding to care for our needs. You were the epitome of all this. It was so comforting to know that you were in charge, and you surely made it as comfortable as humanly possible in such circumstances. Thank you so much for all your time and consideration.
With deep appreciation,
Dear David & Staff,
I want to express once again my gratitude for all you did to help with Mom’s funeral. From the first meeting to begin the planning, to your guidance in finalizing plans and finances, to your help with the actual funeral plans, to the service – everything was done with thoughtfulness, concern, and compassion. We couldn’t have asked for anything better.
With much gratitude,
Thank you for your compassion and excellent service during a very difficult time. You went above and beyond to see to it that I had the casket that I was comfortable with for my husband. Everything was taken care of beautifully.
Recently, my mother passed away in a Burlington Township nursing facility. Having been a Mount Laurel resident for many years, I had been to viewings at the Mount Laurel Home for Funerals on a few occasions and had heard only positive comments from community friends and neighbors who had lost loved ones and had enlisted the services of Dave Petaccio and his fine staff to handle their final arrangements. I made my first phone call shortly after midnight, and despite the time, Dave was so kind, reassuring, and professional...I was immediately comfortable with the choice I had made. Throughout the emotionally draining days that followed, Dave and his staff expertly guided our family through each step of the funeral process and explained the many options available to us, always allowing us to choose what we thought was best. Their kindness and compassion combined with their knowledge provided a much appreciated "comfort zone" for our family during a very difficult time and I would recommend The Mount Laurel Home for Funerals to anyone seeking the type of positive experience that its caring, competent staff will provide.
I wanted to drop a note to thank you and your staff for the wonderful service we received during my mother's funeral. Your kindness, thoughtfulness and professionalism were greatly appreciated. Thank you again for being there for my family and myself. I felt the service was so dignified that I know mom would have been so pleased.
With sincere thanks,
David Petaccio and his staff recently handled all the arrangements for the burial of my Mother. I could not have asked for a more helpful, accommodating and continuously attentive response to all of my needs in making these arrangements. I would recommend David and the Mount Laurel Home for funerals without any hesitation.
Dave is so great to work with. He doesn't try to up sell you products and services. He is fair and reasonable. The service itself was flawless. Everyone commented on how beautiful my grandmother looked on the day of her funeral. Highly recommend.
I recently went through this process for my dad, and while the funeral home I dealt with was good, your funeral home was exceptional!
As strange as this may sound, I have already referred some friends and family to your company, when the need should ever arise.
Job well done, David!
Just a note from my sister and I to thank you for the generous amount of time you gave us prior to our mother’s passing, and your attention and efforts at her passing. We both felt very comfortable that you handled everything with the care and dignity everyone deserves.
We also thank you for the prayer cards you prepared for us.
We could not have been more pleased from start to finish. They were everything you might hope for during a trying time.
Accommodating, understanding, helpful and knowledgeable. I would recommend their services to anyone.
Dear David and Staff,
Thank you so much for everything your team did for us. From our initial meeting to mom’s “big send off.” You are all so special.
I absolutely and wholeheartedly endorse Mount Laurel Home for Funerals!
The funeral home took care of the cremation and memorial service for my mother who died last December.
From the moment I walked into their facility until it was time for everyone to leave after the memorial service ended, I received nothing but the best from the entire staff at Mount Laurel Home for Funerals.
The compassion, empathy, patience, understanding, and professionalism of the staff aided in the healing process in the wake of my mother's death.
Dave Petaccio et al was able to translate the hopes and dreams of Mom's final wishes into reality. She got the memorial service she had been planning for decades.
All expenses were well within the tolerance level. We were always given options within options within options. This place is accessible, comfortable, and affordable. Mount Laurel Home for Funerals earned and deserved every penny spent for their services. I would not hesitate to use their great offices again.
I do endorse Mount Laurel Home for Funerals.
You are in safe hands.
They were unbelievable. It was a very difficult time for us and they went out of their way to make it as painless as possible. Truly a remarkable group of people that care.
Mount Laurel Home for Funerals was recommended by a member of the Mount Laurel Police Department in one of our family's darkest hours. The officer said that to his knowledge this funeral home is highly regarded by many. The shock of losing a family member does not allow you to have time to ponder, and mom and I agreed, yes please call Mount Laurel Home for Funerals. David and staff arrived in a snow storm within 45 minutes and were professional, compassionate and eased our minds as to what the days ahead will bring. John met us the next day and helped us plan our service for my father in law. I couldn't help but feel that I was among friends, not funeral directors. They were helpful, listened fully, and gave us the comfort of their experience and their compassion to trust that all would go smoothly, and our family could say our goodbyes with every bit of honor and respect we could ask for.
Our family could not say enough about the professional and comfortable manner in which every aspect of our funeral needs were met. We are grateful to have had their involvement in saying our final goodbyes. Dave, Joe, and John exceeded our expectations, and I would recommend them emphatically to anyone in their hour of
During a time of great need, Mt. Laurel Funeral Home was there for our family. They were kind and above all, compassionate through the entire process. Conveniently located, easy to find for family members coming from all over the country. The staff was wonderfully attentive and considerate of our loss. Both before and after, the customer service and attention to our needs was met, even exceeded. They made the process surrounding a very difficult time in our family's history, so much easier to bear.
Thank you for helping us through a difficult time. Everything went smoothly at the memorial service for my husband. Your staff was there to handle everything for the family. I chose the right funeral service and was very pleased with your expertise from the first time I met you. You helped to calm my frazzled nerves and took control of getting the Honor Guard, the memorial cards, the guest book, and everything else that needed to be done.
I would highly recommend you to others I know.
Thank you again,
We again would like to thank you for the wonderful service extended to us during our time of bereavement. We were so pleased with everything and also comforted. May we also add that it was a pleasure doing business with you.
Thank you for all the services you provided for our family after my husband’s homegoing. Our family was very pleased with everything.
My husband had great respect for the way you conduct your business and considered you a good friend.
I appreciate all you did in our time of loss.
As I shut down my computer for a short winter nap, I wanted to scribe this last personal message of thanks to you for all that you do and are.
Christmas is a wonderful time when most every person feels God’s love and goodwill in their hearts. It’s a time of the year when I feel the world is a little bit kinder and more like it really should be every day. This is my favorite time of the year! David, you are a person whose kindness reflects the true meaning of the season – not just at Christmas but each day of the year. Everyone around you feels the gentle goodness that you bring to their lives; and, those who are touched by your caring spirit receive a very special gift. Thank you! In fact, I believe everyone at Mt Laurel Home for Funeral embraces this gentle goodness and it is such a joy to be part of something that positively touches the lives of so many others. That is why I give thanks so often for you allowing me to be a part of your team. I am wishing you and your family a Christmas filled with God’s Blessings and a New Year that brings you more than you can hope. Please know that you and your loved ones will be in my personal prayers during all the Masses I celebrate this Christmas season.
Peace, Joy, and Love,
Deacon from a Burlington County Catholic Church
On behalf of my friend, I want to thank you for going beyond your duty to give her a peaceful end that she requested and deserved.
As you know, she had great faith in your staff and told me that you would know what to do for her and her friends and family to make sure her passing was a sign of love and not a sign of grief.
True to her words, you lived up to all of her expectations and she loves you for it. For this I thank you.
Dear Dave and John,
Our sincere gratitude to you all for a truly classy and beautiful ceremony for our father. The kindness and attention you showed us was just what we needed during this difficult time. Thank you so much!
No words could express our gratitude for all your help with Mommy’s funeral. Your making time when my sister came up from Virginia; my calls and questions. Such patience!
And when the time came – David you were sent from heaven. It was like a story book – you took care of everything. EVERYTHING! Our whole family was very impressed with your services.
Your kindness was so appreciated. It lifted a huge weight from our shoulders and allowed us to mourn and grieve.
David and Staff,
We want to thank you for your excellent care and compassion in everything you did for our father’s funeral, as well as for our mom. You are all very special people.
God bless you and your families,
I want to thank you and your staff for your kindness, caring, compassion, and most of all taking such wonderful care of our father.
My family and I are so thankful to you for assisting us to give our dad a wonderful send off. I know our father would have been proud.
With love and thanks,
Thank you for all the sincere kindness you gave us. You helped make our great loss easier. I was very satisfied with the final care my husband received. He looked natural and at peace! Thank you again.
I write to you with sincere thanks and appreciation for your caring and professional ways. Your kindness, knowledge, and patience was a true comfort in making Mom’s arrangements. You consistently went above and beyond in insuring all details were addressed, from the beautiful accommodations at your funeral home, to the perfection in coordinating the details everyplace else – in less than favorable weather. The gentleman who came to the cemetery on Staten Island was another reflection of your professionalism, with his considerate and sympathetic graciousness. You took the most difficult, chaotic time of my life and softened it with compassion and guidance, and left us all with beautiful memories in celebrating Mom’s life.
It takes special people to do what you do and it was truly comforting to have the final tribute for Mom (and Dad) taken care of by the best of the best. You made a sad time so much easier and for that I am very grateful.
I just wanted to write you a note and thank you for your help and your kind personality.
It was a pleasure meeting you, and we will certainly recommend Mount Laurel Home for Funerals.
May God bless you and your family, and thank you for being the kind person you are, it helped us to deal with our grief and the loss of Mom.
I know that this is your profession, but I just wanted to let you know that you do it very, very well. Thanks for all your help and assistance.
I would be remiss if I did not write you a note to thank you for all professional, competent, and friendly service. I was so impressed you and wish you well in the years ahead. Please know that your presence, kindness, and professionalism was more than just “assistance.”
Thank you again for everything,
Thank you for everything you did for me during the most difficult time of my life. I will always remember you.
Although we met under such sad circumstances, I wish to sincerely thank you for your prompt, kind, and gentle manner. Pastor Ryan spoke so kindly of you, we knew you were the right choice for us.
A note of appreciation and thanks for your services for my husband. You helped make a day of sorrow much easier for me and my family. Your kindness and consideration was greatly appreciated.
I was very pleased with how my husband looked, so much like himself. Everything ran very smoothly, I am sure that is not easy to do. A job well done. God bless you and your family.
Thank you once again for taking care of our funeral arrangements for our family.
My mom looked great and the service you let us hold was heartwarming. A big part of that comes from all of you.
Our grandmother was so impressed that you took care of our great aunt’s cosmetics. Thank you for caring for her wishes at a time like this.
Love and prayers,
To David Petaccio:
A time of loss is a very sensitive and emotional time. We realize that your business specializes in these times in life…but what were thankful for is the extraordinary kindness that was extended to our family as we planned to put mom to rest.
For this we are eternally grateful.
With warm regards,
Dear Mr. David J. Petaccio:
It has been gratifying to know how much care you and your staff had shown Dad through his frequent communications with you after each of his moves.
I know that Dad really appreciated the services you provided for Mom, and how he always felt comfortable with you. All that I can say is that his children are all thankful for making Dad and us feel that way.
I cannot thank you enough for your kind and thoughtful attention to my mother. I can’t begin to tell you how many people told me how magnificent of a job you did. It was greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much,
Thank you so much for all of your kind and caring gestures regarding the death of our mother. You made a difficult experience easier to bear, as your caring thoughts, words, and deeds gave us much comfort.
Our mother looked just as we all wished to remember her as, and the services were done with kindness and warmth.
We are truly grateful,
I just wanted to thank you myself for all you did to make us feel better. You did a beautiful job on Pop. Your concern for Mom was genuine, and your willingness to help with any and all aspects of the funeral were unsurpassed. I would be honored to recommend you to anyone who needs your services. Once again thanks.
Dear Mr. Petaccio,
I want to thank you for your competent and kind handling of my father’s arrangements. Your thoughtful attention to detail was appreciated by us all. It isn’t often that you find someone who goes the extra mile in this impersonal world. For what it’s worth, I offer my sincere thanks.
There aren’t enough words to be able to tell you how much we appreciate your thoughtfulness and care you have shown us during this time. Without your guidance we would have been so lost.
There are few people in this world who have your compassion. Please know you are appreciated a great deal.
Thank you again,
Again I wish to thank you on behalf of myself and all of my family for your help and guidance in preparing the memorial service for my mother. Your ideas led to a service that was really very personal and appropriate. The service was upbeat and loving and everything was done with taste and an eye for beauty. I honestly think my mother would have approved of your choices.
Thank you for all of your help,
We can’t even begin to thank you enough for everything that you have done for us over the last few days. You have been such a great help through what has been an incredibly difficult period, and really helped us get through this. Your kind words and actions just reinforced what an amazing individual you are, and I feel honored knowing you. We wish all the best for you and your family in the years to come.
My words cannot express the kindness and help you have shown me. The service was perfect. I will never forget you.
Thank you so much and God bless,
David and Staff,
We want to tell you how much we appreciated your great service in helping with my wife’s funeral. From the beginning to the end of our arrangements, everything went so smoothly. Your dedication, professionalism, and compassion are unmatched. Thank you very much for everything.
Thank you so much for all the guidance, support, and true professionalism you demonstrated during such a difficult time for our family. Your friendship has provided the best comfort and has helped our family do all the right things to carry on.
Thanks for the kindness and unique business ethic that sets you apart.
My family and I would like you to know how much we appreciated your kindness and support while planning my mother’s funeral. We were so pleased with all the arrangements and despite the grief, her funeral truly felt like a celebration of her life! The atmosphere was filled with warmth and love and we attributed that not only to the people who attended, but also to you and your funeral home! Thank you for your dedication and guidance through such a difficult time!
Ann Marie B.
Words cannot adequately express my appreciation for all the special kindness you showed to our family. You went far beyond the call of duty.
Showing the grandkids a video, giving them flower seeds to plant, providing carnations for us. WOW! Is all I can say.
You are the greatest!
Thank you for making this difficult time a special memory for us all.
We just want to say a special thank you for Mother’s funeral. You did the best job anyone could have expected. Everything was perfect. Your place is so beautiful and you made Mother look so pretty and the setting was perfect. There were just enough flowers and they all were beautiful and placed just so. It was an elegant setting.
We can’t thank you enough for all you did for us and the loving, caring way you presented everything. All we can do is pass the word along to advertise your business. And that’s what we’ve been doing.
Several people came to us and said it was the nicest funeral they had ever been to and I have to say that it was for us too. It was perfect.
We just thank you so much, David. God bless you in all you do. You are a loving, caring, and beautiful person and we love you and your loving family. We all have so much to be thankful for.
Doris and Bob C.
Again, let me thank you SO much for everything. I still have people calling me to tell me how nicely the funeral went and what a wonderful tribute it was – and I give you a lot of credit.
David & Associates,
Thank you again for all of your assistance during our time of sorrow over the passing of my Dad. We don’t know how we would have made it through without your help.
We want to wish you a Happy New Year and if there is ever anything you need, please let us know.
Your kindness and caring ways sustained me and my family through one of the hardest, heart-wrenching things we ever had to do. Our extended family noticed all the extra and caring things you did for us at the viewing and funeral mass. They spoke kindly about how you handled the funeral.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Hope the new year brings you and your family the best of everything!
I want to thank you for the beautiful funeral you performed for our dear mother. We know she would have been so pleased with the choices you helped us make. You and your staff did an excellent job. We are honored to have you in our community. Thanks again.
Words of thanks seem inadequate for the outstanding service for my husband’s funeral. Everything was done so professionally and with compassion. You are an asset to your profession. We will always be grateful.
Mary Ann K.
Where do I begin? What do I say? How can I ever put into words what a great job you did at our sister’s funeral? You were so kind, considerate, and caring. You helped us honor her memory in such a special way! You treated us as if we were family.
You are truly a unique and caring person and we want to thank you for a job well done!
Thank you so much for everything you did for my Mother and our family. You made this difficult time easier on all of us. You have a gift for comforting people and we were blessed that you were there for us.
Thank you again,
The funeral arrangements for our beloved husband and father were wonderful. You and your staff provided us with the ability to give our full attention to honoring and celebrating his life without dealing with the many necessary details. You took care of everything with great kindness, consideration and professionalism at a very difficult time in our lives. We receive many compliments from family and friends regarding the services and your staff and you personally. You did a marvelous job. It is evident that you are very proud of your establishment, as well you should be.
We thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for your help in providing a memorable funeral.
You are an incredible person with so many wonderful characteristics, compassion, a sincere understanding of people’s feelings, etc, etc.
I truly wish you and your family many blessings!
I know my Dad must have been very pleased!
We want to thank you for your attention to details and for putting us at ease. I want you to know that your professionalism was also noticed by many people in attendance. We had several people tell us what good job you do and how lovely the Mt. Laurel Home for Funerals is.
Thank you again,
Just a note to let you know how much I appreciated your professional services. It meant a lot to me and my family to have you take care of my husband.
On behalf of my family, we acknowledge your thoughtfulness, your sympathy, and caring to get us through a very bad time. Thank you once again and take care.
I cannot tell you enough about the wonderful work you did for my Dad and our entire family. During our difficult time, God sent you as our angel – everything was done so professionally and very tastefully, all things my Dad deserved. It was such a comfort to see him looking so good and peaceful. Thanks again and God bless.
Thank you for providing such compassionate, and yet totally professional help and support to all of us during the funeral.
We never felt overwhelmed because you had everything under control. And Mom is at peace!
In God’s love,
Dear Dave & Staff,
We thank you with all our hearts for all you have done for us. You made a very sad day a very memorable one for us.
It was quite a spiritual funeral and my husband truly deserved nothing less. He was a very special, caring man. You also are a very compassionate man. We do believe that you are the best in your business. Others can’t even compare themselves to you, Dave. May God bless you and your family and keep you in His care.
Sincerely with love & prayers,
Thank you so much for your totally professional services in taking care of the funeral for my husband.
I can’t put into words how truly grateful I, and my family, am to you! You are truly a wonderful person!
In this day and age you don’t often find such a caring and professional human being. We are profoundly grateful to you, and your handling such a sorrowful time in our lives. I will always recommend you to anyone I encounter!
Dear David and Staff,
Words cannot express how caring all of you were in our time of need. My husband was deeply loved. I was so happy that I chose you to take care of him. You were all great. Our family and friends felt very comfortable and welcome. You have a beautiful facility and big enough to keep everyone out of the cold!
Please take care and don’t lose your personal touch. It means so much to people in their time of need. It is especially difficult around the holidays, as I’m sure you know.
Thank you again.
Once again you were there for our families. We cannot express how grateful we truly are for all you have done to ease us through these times and processes.
On behalf of our entire family – please know that we are extremely grateful for everything.
Thank you for such a beautiful day for all who loved my husband. He would have been please as were all who loved and shared his life.
Thank you for caring and sharing your home for funerals. It was a most peaceful experience.
Dear David and Staff,
My daughters and I, and my extended family would like to thank you once again for the wonderful, beautiful funeral service held at your funeral home for my dear husband. You made us all feel content with the warmth of your hospitality. You are truly a genuine loving spirited person. May God continue to bless you, your family and the business.
I again want to thank you for your kindness, caring, and support during my father’s funeral. We will always be grateful to you for making a very difficult time a little easier. We will always be grateful for finding you, and you will have a special place in our thoughts and prayers.
Mary Ann A.
