    Dear Jena, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Old Bridge Funeral Home for all their help getting us through this trying time. In your letter you talked about how your aim was to help lighten our burden. I can tell our from my heart you have exceeded that goal. Everyone was very understanding, caring and professional. On the emotional side the Daily Affirmations you are e-mailing me is also a big help in dealing with my loss day by day. Throughout my life I have seen a lot of people pass on but I have not been directly involved in making the final arrangements. This is the hardest thing in my life I had to do and I don't know what I would have done if you were not there to help. I have been with Cathy for thirty four of the most wonderful years of my life and I will miss her. We will ass miss her very much. Again from all of us thank you for everything. Sincerely Vincent D'Anton

    Dear David, Corey and all of you at Waitt, I know that It has been a while since my fathers passing, but I did not forget you and it's never too late to say thank you. I am just getting back to normal (I guess...) after his sudden death and I can finally think. I'd like to thank each one of your for your kindness, care and concern for my family and I. I know that our Lord has a plan for us all and that everything is in his hands, but it is hard to say goodbye to someone you love so much. From my first phone call to David, not much longer after he passed I had called from the hospital, and you were so helpful, considerate and kind. I knew I could trust that my father would be taken care of with you, with kindness and caring, and with the respect that he was so deserving of! I had care for him for the past 3 years and had prayed the night before he died for our Lord to do what was best for him. He was not that sick, but we had just fought for so long. I knew his road ahead would get tougher.. and the Lord took him so he wouldn't suffer. I wasn't expecting it though. To leave him at the hospital, after his passing, was hard, but knowing you would take care of him meant the world to me. And that you were a Christian as I am. When we met with you and Corey to finalize his service, you were both helpful in listening to all four of our wishes. Your florist suggestion was better than I could have imagined! Any father would have loved it. The 5ft. wide arrangement stayed on my porch for 2 months... you also managed to get the veterans in time to pay tribute to him. He was so proud to have served his country and told me many stories over these past few years during our drives to the doctors, ect... Every step of the way you were all professional, yet caring, truly. Thank you for allowing me to accompany his body to be cremated. And thank you Corey for allowing me a few moments with him to pray. This has been one of the hardest things that I'd ever had to do, so thank you all for being there and helping me through it. I would gladly recommended you to anyone having to entrust their loved one into safe hands. Thank you to Michael as well. God Bless you and Thank you from the bottom of my heart... Maureen Marcil (Proud Daughter of Russell Luterzo)

    Dear Michael- Thank you so much for all you and your team did to make the last few days so special and helpful for our family. From pre-planning with my brothers to Joe and Jenna's kindness the night they came for Mom…and then meeting with us again on Saturday... you were all wonderful. And the visitation last night was amazing….I mentioned more than once that "Mom looked like Mom"…..I am sure that's not always easy but I so appreciate your team giving us that last gift…. to remember her like she would want to be remembered….. I'm only home an hour and I just went to reach for the phone to tell Mom about today…..I was reminded….she was there and would have approved and been pleased! Thanks for all you did to make that happen! Kindest regards, Grace (Alice Hickey's Daughter)

    Dear Nate, We would like to express sincere appreciation for all you had done for us for the funeral of our Mom, Geraldine Salcines. We were extremely happy with the services we received. Your professionalism, compassion and knowledge never went unnoticed. Losing a loved one is never easy and to make decisions at that time is even harder but you were able to put us at ease. It was comforting to us to know that our mother was in good hands. You definitely exceeded our expectations on how beautiful Mom looked, not only paying attention to detail but making us feel assured that she left this world in dignity. Sometimes words cannot express gratitude and heartfelt thanks. Kudos to you for making a difficult experience easier. With Sincere Gratitude, The Salcines Family

    Again, the service provided was excellent- As I explained to Michael the day of the viewing, our family stayed with a Funeral Home in Linden for the past 30 years, but when Mom went to Mr. James Toomey's service, she was so impressed with the facility and staff she put in her notes she wanted her services at OBFH. I think that your hard work and dedication to your work is evident in the services provided. Thank you again, Jim Jr.

    I attended my niece's funeral there, her name is Sabrina Ann Siegmund. The service was very nice and so was the people who worked there. I think you have one of the best websites for people to access, in case they do not know what to do or in doubt. It is very informative, more Funeral Homes should be more like yours. Your Funeral Home did a great job for My niece, Sabrina Ann Siegmund, well, in my opinion. Thank you for the respect you gave her. sincerely, Jean Carrara
