In behalf of the entire Triana family, thank you for all you did for us and the care you took in helping us with our dad's funeral service.

Dear Joseph Scarano,

 On behalf of the Pasquini/Pustizzi family, I would like to thank Scarano Funeral Homes on accommodating our family to celebrate the life of Carol Marie Pasquini.

From beginning to end, Scarano Funeral Home was there for us. Michael Scarano was very professional and remained in contact with my wife throughout her Hospice stay making our family feel at ease.

Upon passing, Michael called us within the hour to let us know that they were picking up Carol and if we would like to see her before they arrived.

The facilities at the Pines location are spotless and the staff during the services were very accommodating.

Thanks again to Scarano family in supporting our family during this difficult time.

Dear Joseph A. Scarano & Staff,

It was my first funeral and probably the closest to my heart as I buried my mom, Patricia Benn. While the scenario is not the happiest, you and your staff made the process smooth and pleasant. We received so many compliments on how good my mom looked, how beautiful the chapel was and how the whole experience from funeral service to graveside was beautiful. You did my mom a great honor and I hope others will know how lucky to have your team involved when they lose a loved one.

With gratitude,

-Debbie Edwards

Dear Mr. Scarano Sr. & Marilyn,

  A few notes to say Thank You on how my husband's cremation was handled. I know I didn't give you much time because of the circumstances of my son's limited time here in Florida. You staff handled everything in a very professional and caring manner, also I know I probably drove everyone crazy with the phone calls and questions, but no matter what I was treated with the utmost respect and kindness. I am deeply grateful how I was treated in the lose of my husband (George).

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Michael Denoncourt I live in Ogdensburg, New York and on behalf of my family and parents. I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. My brother Patrick Denoncourt passed away on May 28, 2017 and your family took good care of him for us. These last 2 weeks has been very painful but God has taken good care of us and we are very grateful for that. Patrick was a very loving father, Uncle and Brother and he will be sadly missed by everybody who knew him and his family. Patrick loved construction and he worked very hard and learned from the best contractor our Father. Patrick was the man that would do anything for any body, and do it with out a complain or, say no. Patrick built my older Brothers house back in August 1994 and till this day there is not a crack in the concrete or the plaster. I have been thinking of him these last 2 weeks, he is my Guardian angel. I know he is watching over ma and my wife and 3 children. Again, Thank You again from the bottom of my heart and my parents Joseph and Maryellen Denoncourt, Myra Pitcher, Denise Barse, Danielle Denoncourt, Joseph Denoncourt and Michael Denoncourt.

May God Bless you and your wonderful family for what you people do.

"A week ago we held my Mom's funeral at this family-owned funeral home. I am so grateful to Mr. Joseph Scarano and his staff for their genuine caring assistance. They made us feel that they understood our pain, and went out of their way to accommodate Mom's final wishes. I never thought that doing business with a funeral home would be pleasant, due to the nature of the business. However, at this place, everything was perfect and I know that my mom would have appreciated the care given to her. The location is beautiful. The employees are sweet and ready to assist you in all details, large and small. Even the Priest they recommended when the one from my mother's church turned out to be unavailable, was wonderful. Nothing could have been better during such a trying time. Thank you so much again and again Mr. Scarano from the bottom of my heart, Patricia"
Patricia's Review

"Dear Joe, I wanted to thank you so very much for what you did for me and my family. The personal concern and attention to detail to the arrangements of my mother, Dolores, was evident. The last few days of her life were not easy for her, as the ravages of her disease transformed a once stunningly beautiful and vibrant woman into a frail body with a pained look. Through your masterful skills and God-given talent, you returned her to my mrother and that once stunningly beautiful and vibrant woman. I had expected the worst, however, I received the best. as you know, arranging a funeral from 1,249 miles away from home is not without its challenges. You did what we all try to do as funeral professionals: make that process very easy. All our requests were carried out as though you were doing them for you own family and that was very important to me. You are very good at what you do and that gave me and my brother, Robert, peace of mind. I realize that "Florida" style funerals and "New York" style are different. You and your staff did just what i would have done had I been able to be in Florida. Joe I hope you continue to enjoy the good graces that God bestows on you as you deserve everything that you have. The people that you serve are truly blessed to have someone like you serving them at their darkest hour. Your friend, Michael G. Rizzotto"

"November 14, 2015 Hi Joe, It's Stacy Dawson. My husband Ameer had services at your Stirling Rd. location today. It was very beautiful. Just want you to know he looked so real and good many of us thought for sure he was going to open his eyes and say something. It's actually messing with my head that we put a live man in the ground. That's how good he looked. God Bless You!!! Stacy Dawson."

My wife and I were completely at ease knowing everything would be done right. Once again, our deepest gratitude.
