When and where the funeral services are to be held are among the first things the family must decide. They may take place in church, at home, or at The Governor’s Home. Maresca & Sons, with a complete knowledge of what must be done, will cooperate in every way possible to help the family reach a decision and will handle all arrangements in order to relieve the family of the numerous responsibilities of the funeral.
The funeral ceremony lasting over one or more days allows for relatives and friends to pay their respects, offer comfort to survivors and to say goodbye to someone who has meant something special to them. Often there is a visitation and a religious service. During this time you and your family members will share and express your feelings and emotions. It is in this sharing with others, that you are not alone with your grief. Accept consolation, comfort and support in whatever personal way it is offered. The final disposition of earth burial, mausoleum entombment or cremation concludes the ceremony.
Because of Maresca & Sons’ long-standing reputation for unexcelled service, and because of the beauty and spaciousness of its facilities, some people may imagine that only high priced funerals are conducted from The Governor’s Home. Such is not the case. Maresca & Sons has always recognized that the cost of a funeral is a serious consideration to most families. It renders a complete service according to the wishes of the family. Whether elaborate or modest, all families receive the same attention. The on-site selection room, allows a full range of merchandise in a wide range of prices to provide quality choices in meeting the needs of all economic situations.
When funeral arrangements must unexpectedly be made away from home, Maresca & Sons Funeral Home will assist you in any way that we can.
