I returned to Hennessy's today to purchase my husband Angelo's headstone, and once again, I was greeted with such kindness and warmth. Diane helped me every step showing me all my options and listening to my sister and me as to what our family needed and what my husband would want. Just as they had for his funeral, they helped my children and me with each decision we had to make, never rushing us but guiding us and listening to what I needed along with my children and grandchildren. They have all gone above and beyond from my first phone call through the burial and now the final step, the headstone. Thank you all for helping my children and me through this challenging time.

To the Bell-Hennessy family,
I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you to Diane, Bob, Patrick and family for providing such a warm, loving send off for our mother, grandmother, family member and friend. You jumped right on the phone to have our mother transported from SW, FL back to her home in NJ without hesitation. You all showed so much compassion and dignity and ensured our mother's final celebration in life would be filled with everything she's always needed, love. There are not enough words to say how grateful our family is that we had Bell-Hennessy Funeral Home overseeing our mother's funeral from the beginning to end. The gentleman playing the bagpipes, (mom's dream) was a classy touch and he played beautifully. You are all angels. Thank you, again. Renee` Fanelli-Galloway and family.
We wanted to say thank you for your professionalism and care you provided for our son’s funeral. From the obituary to the cemetery, everything went perfect, not to mention handling such a huge crowd. His death has been a horrific experience for our family and his wife and children but the care you gave Dennis from the get go, really helped to ease some of our pain. We will always be appreciative.
I contacted Bob shortly before my Mother passed. When they were called to come to our home, Bob was with them. I felt like a friend had arrived. Very comforting to my heart. The Memorial service was beautiful. Afterwards, I realized that I didn't take time to grieve... I called and spoke with Mary Ann & asked to come over to spend some personal time alone with my Mom. When I arrived, MaryAnn was so kind and sympathetic to my feelings; like family. She had things all set up for me. When it became time to transport my Mother to her resting place, Bob called and asked me if I'd like to come over before she was transported. I was so glad he called and asked. It gave me one last time before she was on her way. I do know that even though she personally was not there but with Jesus, It gave me a last point of contact until I see her on the other side. You may be thinking that this is a business they have to be like that... No, Not necessarily... You may go to a Doctor because he is good at what he does but wouldn't you rather have a Doctor that is good at what he does and have a good bedside manners??? Kind and caring??? It made all the difference in the world. Thank you Bob and Mary Ann and the staff for your kindness.
I thank the bell and Hennessy funeral home they did a beautiful job with my mother and her services thank you so much for making our family feel proud of the decision on having mommy's services with this funeral home
I appreciate all you did for me during a very sad and difficult time. From the very beginning of the process to the final moments at the grave site, your kindness and patience made the celebration of my Brother’s life, John Fabrico more than I could possibly imagine. I would like to thank Robert and his staff for making what was a difficult time easier. He handled and put together our funeral without complications. We felt as though Robert was one of the family. Thanking you again, Doris Smith
Ron, has been gone now for five years. The services you provided was very professional and caring. Can not say THANK YOU enough. Pattie
I would like to personally "thank you" for the wonderful treatment and caring that you gave all of us in behalf of my Father-in-Law. We in the family appreciate the way it was handled and the extra care given to Mary, as this has been a very difficult time for her as well as those closest to John. He was a proud veteran and the Navy engraving on his casket was very touching. Again, my "many thanks" for taking those extra steps in a very trying time. You guys were "GREAT".
Thank you for your patience with us. We were upset at my Dad's funeral but Jim's was so much harder for us. I know this is not just a job or anything to you. You all are really concerned for the families you deal with and it shows. He would have especially liked the dogs being there to calm Nikki. I really appreciate the special attention you gave the girls - they really took this hard, especially Nikki. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart. God Bless.
Your compassion and support meant so much to us, especially Ed and me. Our mother, Nan, as the children and neighborhood tots knew her, looked like our glamorous "Auntie Mame". It was so unbelievable how you restored her beauty. Everything you did, you did with such a professional and caring manner. I already instructed my children to take me to Bell-Hennessy Funeral Home when my time comes, which, by the way I hope is a long way off!
Thank you for your prayers, words of comfort and acts of kindness upon Jerry's death. What a blessing it was for us to walk in and see Jerry looking like Jerry. It was the best gift you could give us - to say goodbye to our husband and father - looking, as he should not - as we experienced in the hospital. Thank you for your support, your love and caring for us as time helps us to heal. God Bless you.
Words cannot express how grateful I and my family are to you both for the excellent job you did with my Father's burial plans and execution of everything you did, to make us comfortable at such a very difficult time in our lives. Everyone who attended commented on the beauty of the funeral home and how comfortable they felt. Thank you for making such a difficult time much easier... and for making my Father's departure from this earth, one of dignity, great respect and love.
Words alone cannot express how grateful I am to you all. You made my mother look beautiful and peaceful. Thank you. Most of all, you helped me feel at ease with everything. You all have a wonderful quality of being able to calm people. Your kind and loving ways are unconditional. I love you all dearly.
PS: The hoagie tray was a great hit!! Thank you.
On behalf of my entire family, I would like to take this opportunity to both personally and professionally thank you for all you have done with the passing of my father. You made an extremely difficult time a little easier knowing the both of you were in charge. My father thought the world of each of you and treated you as his own. I will be forever grateful for the friendship you have shared and for you have done.
We just wanted to send you this note to say thank you. You went out of your way and I was amazed with how smooth and easy you made it all. I really appreciate it.
We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
