This past week you provided a beautiful service for my wife, Judy Lee Reid Martin. Two of your staff, William "Will" Lohn and Michelle Stovall responded to my call upon the death of my wife and handled all the details from Start to finish. Will's personality and attentiveness to details made the process easier on the family and it was a distinct pleasure to work with him. Michelle worked in the background but was always close by if we needed anything. Our family was very pleased with the way you and your staff truly recognized the needs of our family at the worst of times. Our heartfelt Thanks go out to you and your entire organization.

Dear Jerry and Staff

My family and I want to express our gratitude and appreciation for your kindness, guidance, and uplifting support thru this time.  

You and your staff became a family and special friends to us.

You answered so many questions, had wonderful suggestions, ( I love the idea of placing a quilt, or other item my Mom would like on the casket. Many of our friends commented on it.)

You helped walk us thru this journey with dignity and comfort.

Thanks for making Jim's memorial so beautiful. All the small things you did such as his love of country music meant so very much. It was so personal. I & Sherry appreciate your thoughtfulness so much!
- Shirley Gemmill

On behalf of myself and our family, words cannot express how much the family at Monaghan’s means to us.

Loosing Mom so unexpectedly was one of the worst things to go through, but knowing you and your staff were there to take care of us, and knew and loved Mom as much as we did, truly made this experience so much easier.  You treasured my Mom and us more than we could ever imagine.  Thank you for taking care of every detail and taking care of us as a family.  You and your staff were truly above wonderful.  You made saying goodbye to Mom so much easier.  My Mom loved you Jerry, and all of your staff, and she always felt such a part of the Monaghan family and please always know that we consider you part of our family.

Again, you will never know how much you are truly appreciated for all that you did for us.  Know that you are always in our thoughts and prayers

Much Love
Amee Rotella-Dame and family

We did shop around and checked out the "big three". But they were WAY more expensive and didn't even begin to compare to Monaghan. So stay away from the "stuffy" and deal with the "family" folks. Thank you Jerry Monaghan for making our experience so special and so flawless. You folks are AWESOME!!!
-Donna Slaughter Armstrong

Your extra touches and sincere kindnesses were so special and so helpful.
- Liz Stradtner and Family

It has been a blessing to be shown a genuine “family sense” of caring, kindness and accommodation during our loss. You both go above and beyond in what you do and are truly gifted in the area of helping others at a difficult time.

The personalized memorial service, reception and the final good-bye to our loved one was met with many warm compliments about the "true home feeling" that you and your staff provided.
-The Mullins Family

Your staff valued our professional opinion and bent over backwards to please all! For any family seeking an awesome individual experience, we highly recommend your expert, professional heart felt services at Monaghan Funeral Home.

Your facility was beyond our expectations and it was so homey and just what we wanted for our visitation and service.

We could not be more pleased at the exceptional and professional way in which you attended to every detail.

You went above and beyond for us and it will not be forgotten.

We couldn't even think at the time- you did the thinking for us- you even read our minds when we came to points of indecision.

Jerry and Staff,

On behalf of my entire family, we all want to express our sincere appreciation for your professionalism, sincerity, kindness, and compassion when my father, Richard Juliano passed away in December, 2013.  You made a very trying and sad time easier and helped us all get through it.  You went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect, and I have had so many people comment on how beautiful and nice everything was.  You really made us feel at ease, and the family atmosphere there is wonderful.  Thanks again Jerry!  Kelly, Larry and Kristie Helmick and the Juliano family

Jerry Ferrato was such a sweet and gentle soul-his courage and gratitude throughout his illness were notable. When Jerry passed away, he deserved the best acknowledgements possible, thanks to your wonderful service. Your compassionate efforts to make Jerry's "final send-off" could not have been surpassed by anyone else. The way you paid attention to every detail to ensure that Jerry received the dignity he deserved, is something I will never forget. Thank you so much for the wonderful service we received in saying "goodbye" to such a special person. Not only was the service we received the best; the price was extremely reasonable compared to other funeral homes.

When our mother, Ruth died in 2012, she had one request - that Monaghan Funeral Home handle her funeral. As usual, Mom was spot on. Jerry and his staff took special care of her and us honoring all her wishes and ours for an extra special celebration of her amazing life. Now our sweet father, Maynard has passed on and Jerry helped me arrange a memorial service from 2300 miles away. Our heartfelt thanks to Jerry, Charles, Mary Ellen and the other staff we did not meet for helping us make Dads' celebration of life an extra special warm and intimate service. They honor family in every sense of the word. A special thanks to Jerry for joining us on rainy Monday to honor and toast Dad at our unique graveside send off. We have added Jerry to our family tree - we always wanted a brother.

Jerry, Burt, and William:

You each have our eternal thanks for helping us along the very difficult path leading up to Dad’s death and for helping make his memorial service a fitting tribute to his life.  In the depths of our sorrow, you provided comfort and reassurance that Dad’s journey to eternal life would be a peaceful on.  We cannot imagine anyone else in your business providing such heartfelt commitment to the heart wrenching tasks that families like ours face.  May God bless each of you for helping us create lasting memories of Dad’s role in our lives.
