"Both my parents were buried through Corrigan, Craciun Funeral Home. Jim Craciun helped with the services. When my Husband Charles, died suddenly from cancer, I immediately contacted Corrigan, Craciun Funeral Home on West 147th. and Lorain Ave. Tom Corrigan helped me through this difficult time. I appreciate Tom's kindness and knowledge. Diane."
