our funeral director was Kristen Waznak, and is a great asset to your business. She is a wonderful, sweet, friendly, extremely competent person who is very good for someone who is grieving.
Anthony made this easy for us. My husband Joe's children first went through a year of Joe being very ill. The thought of planning his viewing and funeral services were traumatic, but Anthony was so considerate & willing to go out of his way for whatever we might need, he was quick courteous & thorough. It was a beautiful, very spiritual experience and i hate going to funerals.
Katherine was very helpful throughout the entire process of making arrangements between here and Florida. She kept the family informed and made sure that everything went smoothly. She was very respectful and caring, and made sure that the urns was safely secured in my automobile when I drove away.
Thank you for your caring , kind, sincere, and professional service during our family's difficult time. We are forever grateful for the help that you provided, for the compassion that you showed, and for the thoughtful words of sympathy and encouragement.

I personally was filled with gratitude how everything was handled, I felt Mom was in great hands that made me feel better. Kristen went up and beyond for us and will always hold that in my heart.
Everything was above and beyond expectations! Even to the funeral director lending his coat on a very cold nasty day. Taking care of the fine details and paperwork by Anthony was a godsend and Katies after visits were very thoughtful.
Excellent Service, much more than we expected, very grateful

Dear Sid and the entire staff of Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis,
Thank you so much for your kind, caring and frankly amazing service during a most difficult time of grief and loss for us. You came highly recommended by my cousin JoAnn and it turned out to be a blessing. We drove over 2,000 miles to get to Scranton and my brother passed in Maryland. I had no idea how this would work out at the time when we were grief striken and exhausted but some how Sid and his staff provided us with so much ease and took care of everything quickly and professionally. Not only was the visitation and service handled but Sid even arranged to have our Buick cleaned. Thank you again. I have no idea how we could have gotten through this without you all. We also were so touched and grateful that you had a mass said for Luis.

Sincerely,
Katherine--Thank you so much for all your help with the funeral preparation and services for Dad. Everything was done so thoughtfully and so professionally.
Given the short time we had for viewing, everything was done to perfection. Our Aunt Carmella looked beautiful and even she would approve of how beautiful you made her look. Your entire staff was friendly, courteous and professional, yet family orientated. Thank you for making this difficult time less stressful.
Sid and staff, thank you for all you did for our family.
Katie is a pleasure to deal with through things you may only need to manage once in a lifetime! WE have used her services twice and both were very different, due to Covid 19. Each experience was well done! Thank you for all you did for us.
The entire staff shows compassion and respect for the person who passed away and especially for the family at a time of a loss of a loved one! Any request or concerns we may have, got immediate attention from the entire staff. The prep and appearance of our love ones was always excellent and gave us beautiful lasting memories. Thank you!

Special thank you to Katherine for always going out of her way to help.
Dearest Carl and Anthony,
What more can be said of your great compassion and care for the people and community that you serve? This has been the saddest time in my entire life and yet you two made it bearable from removing Michele's body, prayers at home and the meeting arrangements it was handled so seamless and beautifully done. A beautiful mix of friendship, love and just the right touch of humor to break the sadness when it was needed. You will always and forever be dear to me. From the depths of my soul, thank you!
We appreciate every attention made to every detail. We really loved the way mom looked -- better than we could have hoped for. Every staff member was courteous, helpful, and compassionate during this difficult time.
The attention to detail and compassion shown by Katherine went above and beyond the normal and necessary. She was a pleasure to work with.

I just had to let you know how much the beautiful letter and the card from the Living Memorial meant to me. It brought tears of joy to my eyes not tears of sadness. It is such a beautiful sentiment after so much sorrow.
I also wanted you to know that people are still telling me the Sheldon's funeral was very special. It was done so nicely that it was more of a tribute to him.
Again my family and I want to thank you for a very special day.

Katherine, Thank you to you and Kristen for spending so much time with us. Thank you for the beautiful prayer cards and the butterfly ones, we love them. Thank you for saving the roses and dropping them off. I saved the butterfly on the newspaper. It meant more to me than you know. I dried all the roses and sprayed them. I gave them to everyone and we all have them in small vases. They mean so much to us. Also thank you for going above and beyond, for running soda and crackers to John who was sick at the time.

Thank you for all your professional team did to make Ann's funeral a dignified and meaningful event. Katherine was wonderful to work with.
Sid, Anthony, and the whole staff were wonderful. We experienced some extenuating circumstances with the cemetery when it was time to dig the plot for my father. Sid personally oversaw/handled the problem and kept us up-to-date, sometimes multiple times a day. The staff created a beautiful picture of my father for the lobby, just in case we couldn't have an open casket. I can't say enough how wonderful everyone was, but especially how caring, as we said goodbye to our father. Thank you very much for everything you did for us!
"The quality of your facilities was only surpassed with your services. I expected professionalism and attention to detail. Your compassion, understanding, support and concern was not expected but was delivered on a continuous basis. Keep up the great work!"
"It goes without saying that the matters with which you deal every day are delicate, but I imagine it would probably be easy to become jaded, hardened to your clients' emotional needs. That is not at all how we found our contacts with you, however. Quite to the contrary, you gently led us through the process, guiding us to the necessary courses of action and offering us as much communication as we required. Moreover, the Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home staff members were as supportive and helpful as we could have hoped on the day of the funeral and thereafter."
" No adequate words can express our deep appreciation in our time of sorrow."

"This past September I watched the televised coverage of Trooper Dickson's funeral service from the Cathedral in Scranton. As most who may have been there or watched on television as I did, it was striking to see the tremendous outpouring of support, especially by the many members of law enforcement who attended the service. But what stood out the most that day was you. This was a public event as was the military funeral of Staff Sgt. Patrick Dolphin, three years ago, both received local news coverage and national acknowledgement. Yet the care, compassion, and respect that you exhibited in both of these high profile situations was the very same that you showed to me and my family as you sat at my kitchen table on three seperate occasions helping me to plan the final journies of my loved ones, helping me through their losses. So Thank You, not just from me but on behalf of the countless other "non-high profile" families that you help everyday through the most difficult times of our lives. I'm proud to know you."
"Words seem rather inadequate at the burial of my dad, but you made it easier. You handled all of your duties with compassio, concern, and kindness. You are a true gentleman. I realize portions of your qualities are part of your profession, but your handling of the details and your payment to the bugler was beyond your profession."
"While our heart and soul was breaking at the loss of my most precious and much loved mom, our trust in you and your guidance served to give us strength.
