Dear Chris and Staff, Thank you very much for the wonderful service for my husband Walter and the kindness you showed our family at a very sad time. We especially appreciated you obtaining the Navy to honor Skeets with the playing of Taps and the presentation of the American Flag. It was very touching and special to our family. Many of our friends commented on it. It was these special touches that meant so much to all of us. Thank you, too, for your courtesy.

Dear Bob, Chris, Arthur, and all the wonderful people at Cataudella's. For decades our family has waked our loved ones at Cataudella's. Our recent experience after my mom died in October show that you continue to do your work with generosity, sensitivity, and dignity. The wake, service at church, and the service at the cemetery were all beautifully orchestrated and we had peace of mind knowing that all would happen well. We really appreciate being picked up at the Tuscan Kitchen and the extra hour of the wake - we needed both. Wishing you all the best. See you next time! Donna S.

Dear Chris, I just want to thank you for a beautiful, well done job in providing a final farewell for my husband. In addition to your compassion and understanding (which is expected from any funeral home,) I was most appreciative of the calling of names of all those attending the funeral; having all the pallbearers line up as guests were leaving for the funeral; asking if I wanted to place the blanket on my husband before the casket was closed; making sure my grandchildren, who were pallbearers, were instructed and walked through the funeral protocols; bringing the family together for the placing of the Pall; the special nod and smile you gave me when I kissed my grandchildren during the Sign of Peace; and arranging the Honor Guard at the cemetery, playing Taps, and the presentation of the Flag (they did a phenomenal job.) Everyone was impressed with how you provided, with dignity, Frank's final tribute. Your kindness will not be forgotten. Thank you, Priscilla C.

Everything went well. It was a pleasure doing business with you. You took good care of my husband. Me and my family loved John so much. He was a wonderful & loving husband & a wonderful & loving father & Nano. We all miss him so much. I almost forgot. The military ceremony at the cemetery was so wonderful. John admired the servicemen & flags. He must have been so happy that he had both. Thank you Chris for arranging that for John. God Bless. Sincerely, C.P. and Family

To the wonderful staff at Cataudella Funeral Home, My sister Ginny and I would like to extend our gratitude for the beautiful granite etching of our beloved mother, Sarah M.  A very special thank you to Bob Mundry for his wonderful and caring service in picking up our mom in the wee hours of the morning, giving us time to sit with her right after she passed, and showing such respect for her as he prepped her for the ride back to the funeral home. Our mother looked absolutely beautiful at her wake. Everyone who came commented on lovely and at peace she looked. No one could believe she was 98 years old. The gorgeous flowers surrounding our mom added to the beauty of her wake. Our family has always held our services at Cataudella Funeral Home because of your excellence in handling every aspect of the wakes and funerals of our family members. Your professionalism and respect toward the deceased, their families, and all the visitors who enter Cataudella's is unsurpassed. We appreciate your unending support and kindness to our family and would recommend your services to all our family and friends. In closing, we would again like to thank Bob, Chris Chetsas, Emily, Laura, our limo driver, the office staff, and the staff who escorted us to church and the cemetery.

Dear Chris, You and your team were absolutely a great pleasure to help us with our end of life care for my mum. We found you to be professional, detail oriented, efficient, door-is-always-open, as well as calm, caring, generous, understanding, compassionate, open-handed, and gracious. Our experience motivates us to sing your praises to everyone we know. We had no idea what to expect, and you not only made it easy, you made it special and great. By giving Paul the option to view my mum in her yellow dress and be cremated with the poem and flowers from her own yard, you gave him and all of us peace. We were fearful of how things would be judged because we strayed from the traditional life end proceedure. You gave us confidence and support by letting us borrow thangs that made us look polished and together. We are impressed by your kindness, and inspired to continue in the spirit of caring and giving and loyal to your good name. Gratefully, Bianca, Paul and the R. Family

Dear Chris, Bob, and Jack,      Randall and I would like to thank you so much for the excellent and professional care. After taking care of M. for as long as we did, this time has been difficult and we are still trying to find our "new normal" but everyone there has been as helpful as anyone could expect.      Randall and I had never been through anything like this and the morning she passed we were both looking to each other for direction. I was trying to remember the instructions from Merrimack Valley Hospice (who were also wonderful!) while Randall tried to gather himself. I'm pretty sure he and I were just bumping into one another and pacing until Jack showed up.       Jack's kind, caring, and understanding demeanor gave us peace. I immediately knew that Leo and Margaret made the right choice when they picked Cataudella Funeral Home almost 20 years ago for their care.      Chris walked us through a process which was new for us. His professionalism, empathy, and understanding was appreciated and made us feel at ease.      An additional thank you to Bob. Bob, your father was one of my favorite people on this earth and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree my friend. Thank you!      Putting my mother-in-law in the care of someone else after taking care of her for so long was difficult emotionally. The three of you made it so much easier and is appreciated.      Please extend our thanks to all who were involved.  Regards, KDB

Thank you as it has made a difference in our family's time of grief. David.

A granite tile with my mother etched on it arrived at my home yesterday afternoon.  It's beautiful. I'm overwhelmed by the generous gift, which I have brought to my office and is on my desk now as I type this note.  Thank you for your ongoing support of our family. The photo we chose reflects how we all want to remember her.  She was healthy, happy and vivacious. That picture was taken while she was in a gondola in Venice, Italy.Italy was her favorite country, not surprising since she was an Italian-American.

My sister and I would like to express our sincere gratitude for the wonderful service that you and your staff provided during a most difficult time. Your expertise and guidance helped us stay focused on our family and not worry about coordinating her funeral.  Your staff is absolutely top notch.  They were caring, courteous, helpful and unbelieveably polite.  Their calm, peaceful and knowledgable approach made all of our guests very comfortable and welcomed. Their professionalism (and yours) is something that other service providers should follow.  The DVD that you produced for us was incredible.  Your staff took our pictures and turned them into a very heart-warming and professionally prepared presentation that had our guests glued to the display.  The extra laminating services that you provided for us was above and beyond and was very much appreciated.  Your facility is one of the most beautiful that we have ever seen.  The cleanliness, the atmosphere and the decor was perfect.  We really appreciated the fact that we had two rooms. It allowed us plenty of room for our guests and it was decorated and arranged in a very peaceful and calm manner.  We were also very impressed with the hearse and the limousine.  Late model vehicles that were very classy and well cared for.  Again, other providers should follow your lead.  We can't say enough about the wonderful services that we received.  We will be recommending your services anytime we are asked.  We thank you and all of your staff for making us feel welcome and helping us through one of the most difficult times in our lives. Thanks for everything.
