"Pontarelli Marino Funeral Home is nothing less than outstanding. I was very impressed with the services for my mom when she passed away, I knew I would be returning for my dad. Their professionalism is second to none. They took care of everything . At a time when you can't think for yourself, they do the thinking for you . I never felt rushed and was treated with respect, compassion, and fairness."

"Since this funeral was prepaid by my Uncle, some of the questions were not applicable to me. I had no say in the arrangements but I was very satisfied in how things were done."
