When my mother passed at only 50 years old from cancer, it was unexpected for us. We were financially and mentally not prepared to be burying our dear mother. At 23 years old, and having never planned a funeral, let alone my own mothers, i was extremely nervous and unprepared. I had checked a few homes before, some were out of our price range, others were affordable but their was no personal attention or care. When i arrived at Schaefer Funeral Home, i was attended by Pat. He was beyond helpful, making sure that the price was affordable, and making sure everything went smoothly. Pat and his staff were so amazing! We were able to create a beautiful service for our mom, and Pat really hooked us up with such a beautiful casket. We had just one viewing day, so we went a little over the time, and the staff wasn't pushy or trying to get us out. They really made us feel welcomed, and they didn't try to push anything on us we didn't need, nor did Pat try to up-sell us on anything. I truly just want to thank the Staff here, for all there work and efforts. I would highly recommend this funeral home to anyone in the Brooklyn area!
Wow, where do I begin, with the passing of my mother in law, the staff are very attentive, showing compassion and very professional as friends and family arrived. The initial process of setting up the arrangement was outstanding in that they thought of everything with some simple questions getting to details we didn't think of. They were VERY accommodating to any requests that were made. We anticipated a big turn out and they handle the large capacity easily with plenty of rest rooms for all. The process and services including the burial was beyond expectations, my mother in law send off was beautiful, WE MADE THE RIGHT DECISION, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, THANK YOU!
Thank you for providing excellent services and exceeding our expectations with your compassion and professionalism. After comparing services across other neighborhood funeral homes, your facility rose to the top. Everything was explicitly clear and detailed in writing so that we can discuss with other family members. The "added touches" like the video, valet parking, spacious facility, clean restrooms, etc.really sold us and we couldn't think of going anywhere else. Your friendly staff on the day of the wake services was great and attentive to every detail to ensure our friends and family felt most comfortable. We highly recommend your funeral home. Thank you again.
I truly think in my heart that there is no way how I can express to Pat and his staff how they made me feel at the worst time in my life. I want to give them my heartfelt thanks, they couldn't have done a better job for me than they did....God Bless and Thank You again.
Amazing, caring, considerate staff. We appreciate you for your excellent service to our family. This was an extremely difficult time for us, and your caring staff helped us through it.. Thank you for being so accommodating. (Manuel A. Fernandez Family)
The funeral director made a very difficult time much easier by providing many options available and explaining everything. He was compassionate and understanding to our needs.
I like your courtesy and compassion.
Made a difficult time and process easy.
Erin was terrific!
Pat was the most wonderful person to deal with during such a difficult time. His staff went above and beyond their responsibilities and it was apparent they wanted to help in any way possible.
Pat and the team were excellent in a tough time; we felt immediately comfortable and trusted his advice, excellent communications and very fast service. I could not have looked for better service in one of life's toughest moments. Thank you.
