Thank You Letter from Brady & Levesque Funeral Home

Karl, Thank you so much for your call today. I just want to emphasize my thoughts on Funeral Home Gifts. We started with Funeral Home Gifts in September of 2013. The first tapestry I did was for a cousin who passed. Her family was so pleased with what I did, and how the tapestry came out, I knew right then and there, we were on to something. Since then, we have done many. Each and everytime, we do not tell the family we are doing one for them. We have it on display in our chapel, and it is the first thing they see when they walk in the room. Everyone’s reaction has been the same. One of shock, surprise, appreciation, and amazement. They first of all can’t believe how beautiful it is. Their next reaction is of wonder, wondering […]

At funeral trade show in Boston, focus is on creating ‘a wow experience’ in a changing industry – The Boston Globe

Bob Biggins had a plan for navigating the exhibition floor at the funeral directors convention in Boston this week: Skip the caskets and steer clear of funeral vehicles. Too boring, said Biggins, 60, chief executive at Magoun-Biggins Funeral Home in Rockland. Instead, he descended the escalator at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and walked to a display of customized tribute blankets, like one in his home that honors his wife, Christine, who died of breast cancer in 2015. “My grandkids, when they come to my house, where do you think they go to sit? On the chair, where the blanket is, and they wrap it around themselves,” Biggins said. “They make themselves like they’re talking to Nanna. It’s powerful.” The blankets, he said, are a “perfect example” of where the funeral business is headed. Read the full article HERE […]

Thousands gather to lay fallen FDNY firefighter to rest

The grief-stricken 8-year-old daughter of fallen firefighter William Tolley now has a father in every FDNY member, Bravest promised during her dad’s funeral on Thursday. “Bella’s our little girl now, and we’re gonna take care of her,” said Jarrett Katarski, who was stationed with Tolley, as he choked back tears during a eulogy. “You’re gonna have 40 protective and overbearing dads looking over your shoulder now,” Katarski told the young girl, who wore her late father’s dress cap and clutched a blanket with his face on it during the funeral at St. Martin of Tours in Bethpage, LI. Mayor de Blasio, whose father died when he was 18, assured the youngster she will find comfort in her father’s sacrifice. “Sometimes of course you’ll wish you knew him better, you’ll wish you had more time, but you’ll never have to wonder […]
