What Our Families Are Saying.

Adrienne, Graham, Jan and everyone who had a part in Bob Malanchuk's reception.

This note has taken far too long to be written.  Every time I started it, it became either too long or too hard and I had to quit.  I do need to tell you all how much your support and guidance meant to my daughter, Kristy; her husband, Bryon and myself.  You touched us in a way that was so important, and your caring got us through those first days of horrific pain and confusion. You understood what we were going through, and were there for us in a very special way. You felt like family,
I am sure I would have missed many crucial details without the checklist, and notes from you, Jan. I am still working through some of the details, but whenever I get confused, I go back to the Executor website to get back on track.
Thank you again. I know I made the right choice when I chose DeStefano,

Ronna Malanchuk

Dear Staff,

On behalf of the Mulhern family we want to sincerely offer our gratitude and special appreciation to the Director and staff of DeStefano Funeral Homes, for the exceptional considerations and helpfulness extended to all of our family and friends touching on the burial preparations of our son. Our expectations, given all of the circumstances involved, were exceeded well beyond our imagination. It was a beautiful presentation in every detail. It will not be forgotten.

Thank you. Paul Mulhern & family.

Dear Adrienne,

Thank you for helping us through the process from beginning to end.  We appreciate all the support from the entire staff.  Explaining each step helped us make decisions and feel in control of a very hard situation.  We will never forget your kindness.


The Mayers Family


We recently put my kid brother Rick Traill to rest after a battle with brain cancer.  Our experience with Graham at DeStefano Funeral Home was a first class experience.  You know when the family is grieving it is easy to get lost in the details.  But DeStefano Funeral Homes' expertise, compassion, great staff and organizational skills can actually make your day an unbelievable event.  They managed 300 people efficiently and professionally.  They actually care about you, they get to know your family.  We were blown away by their facilities and media capabilities including webcast technology which allowed our cousins from England to visually attend the funeral service. 

Question: Was it a sad day for our loss of a loved one-absolutely, but with Graham Stewart's guidance and expertise our day became a tribute and celebration of life and became the perfect closure to a great life.

Give these people a try, they are amazing.  Oh did I mention the food was awesome, fresh, huge and plentiful. 

Thank you very much, it was indeed a pleasure crossing our paths!

I want to take a quick moment to thank Adrienne and the entire DeStefano Funeral Home family for their overwhelming love and support.  A family's worst nightmare was upon us, the loss of my grandson.  Not knowing where to turn or what to do, you took the time to listen and set in motion everything we desired for our Angel and more.  The support that was provided for my daughter who was experiencing the loss of her only child was beyond all our expectations and we take comfort in knowing that we made the right choice.  Thank you greatly.
