    I wanted to thank you for everything you did for our Dad and our family. You handled everything and that made it much easier for us. Many people that I have spoken to, said that many of the things you did for us, they had to do for themselves. Thank you so very much.

    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!

    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!!!!

  • June 16, 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.
