Both Lisa & Joe very professional, kind and helpful during a difficult unexpected death.

William Amato June 29, 2020

We chose Roslyn Heights based on both location (at the time) and my contact with several places. This was prearranged and was very well done. Joe Veloti was always available, clear and thoughtful and helpful. When the time came, they were quick (but not rushed) and very thorough and again, very caring and available (even though the location was no longer near where my father "was"). They/he did so well that we selected them to make prearrangements for my mother, who passed, unexepectedly, just a few weeks after the completed the arrangements. Once again, Joe was quick and helpful and thoughtful and kept in touch. Everything was so much easier than expected (both with his help and having done things in advance). I recommend him/Roslyn Heights Funeral Home most highly. (By the way, we are Jewish and they did just fine!).

It’s been a year since the passing of my brother and I want to thank Joseph and his wife for their knowledge, respect, dedication, compassion, during a most difficult time in our lives. The death of a brother, son Is traumatic and stressful. They helped with all the details. On my brothers birthday a card was sent to my parents. On the 1st Anniversay of his passing a card was sent to my parents. These extra special remembrances are what makes Roslyn Heights Funeral Home stand out from the rest. Thank you again for your amazing heart.

I wanted to thank you so very much for all you did for me & my family in getting through a very difficult time, the death of our Dad. Throughout the whole process, the wake, the funeral & burial you made us feel like we were dealing with a "family member" rather than a complete stranger doing his job. Everything was done so professionally & with taste & sensitivity. Whenever we asked for something else or to make a change you responded with agreement and support. Thank you & God Bless!

The Salmon Family April 04, 2016

I was more than pleased that I chose the Roslyn Heights Funeral Home for my dear mother's memorial gathering. Joseph Velotti, the funeral director, was very accommodating and helped me through planning her memorial when she was in hospice. My mother was cremated and Mr. Velotti did all of the necessary leg work and paperwork to make it as simple as possible for me. He always made sure everything was in order. His staff was great too! The video montage he made that was played at the memorial was fabulous. The facility is top notch and very comfortable. I strongly recommend them!!!!

Jane Stagnitta & The Family of Agnes O'Neill May 19, 2014

My experience at Roslyn Heights Funeral Home for my mother's funeral was flawless, from beginning to end. Joe had the perfect phone manner, endless patience and in-depth knowledge about everything that could come up. There was not one detail that he did not take care of for me, from umbrellas in case it rained, to having death certificates sent quickly. I did not have to worry about anything, except for my own grief. The most surprising part was that it cost about half of what we paid for my father's funeral at a competing place, a funeral home where the family didn't even feel comfortable. I wholeheartedly recommend Roslyn Heights.

Andrea Black June 16, 2014

Thank you for making it stress free, can't thank you enough. Everyone commented on how easy you made it.

Kathy McLoughlin July 26, 2013

Joe Velotti was extremely compassionate, caring, explanative and helpful through one of the most difficult times that any person could experience with the loss of a loved one. He had an overwhelming abundance of caskets and services available. Joe is a true gentleman and could not have done anymore to help us through this difficult time. Our family was overwhelmed with his service performance and highly recommend his services. Joe did an amazing job coordinating his facility with the outside agencies of The Roslyn Highlands Fire Company, The Nassau County Police Department, Nassau County Fire Services and Nassau Knolls Cemetery to pay tribute to the Celebration of my fathers life.
