"Since December 1st we've been living the worst days of our lives with the loss of my little brother. It will be a day we will never forget. Trying to process our loss while still having to arrange everything for his funeral at first felt like a nightmare and like something we didn't want to think about but it needed to be done. We looked at a few f

uneral homes but it always felt like they weren't the ones. When we drove to Montclair-Lucania funeral home we right away felt like that was the place for our last physical goodbye and that feeling was just by looking at the outside of the funeral home and the parking it provides. As soon as we walked in we were welcomed by Jayme Lemons who up to today when we picked up my brothers ashes has been nothing but helpful and such a big support for my family and I. We took a tour at the funeral home and knew right away that was the place. The funeral home is spacious which was also an important factor given the COVID-19 situation we are living in. Because we want it a place that had enough room for people to keep some distance and be able to move around to keep everyone as safe as possible. The funeral home is also clean and given the circumstances which are not the best we can also say it's a beautiful place. As soon as you walk in it smells clean, it's nicely decorated and once we started talking about the packages we knew we had found the place. Jayme Lemons was very respectful towards us and managed to answer all of our questions and concerns. He gave us the space and time to read everything and make our decisions. His attentive care during the most difficult time of our lives made us feel at ease and very comfortable. We will forever be thankful and grateful for finding Montclair-Lucania funeral home, Jayme Lemons and the rest of the staff that during the two days of service worked with us to make of our brothers funeral service something special and unforgettable. My little brothers body also looked so much like him, he looked like he was just peacefully sleeping. The detailed care they provided for the preparation of his body, to the detailed care for the things the funeral package provided was not something that went unnoticed. Once we found the funeral home and we signed the papers we didn't have to worry about anything regarding the service and that was something we really appreciated and valued. Thank you Jayme Lemons and Montclair-Lucania Funeral Home for everything and for making this painful and hard process as easy as possible for our family.
