"I was extremely pleased with the services you provided and Ken was wonderful to work with. The guest book we received had been personalized for my husband and the roses sent the day before the service were beautiful. I was overwhelmed and pleased with everything. Thank you"

"I was very pleased with my husband's arrangements provided by Alleva Funeral Home. I was a little nervous that day but Stephen and his staff made sure that everything went smoothly and it did. They were right there all the time asking me if I needed anything. Very attentive. A very nice gentleman met me at the back entrance and carried everything I had for my husband's cremation. We did not have to do anything. When the service was finished the team packed up my car with the flowers and belongings. This funeral home is excellent."
