I want to thank the entire team at Daniel J. Schaefer for the exceptional service we received this past week during the passing of my dear Mother. This was one of the hardest and saddest things I have ever had to do and Ashley was so kind and caring from the first day I called. I cannot thank her enough for helping me each step of the way and for her compassion as well as her professionalism. Also, Chris and Mercedes were so wonderful during her viewing and allowed us to stay longer so we could pray the Rosary. Tom was also amazing the day of her funeral and we just thank you all for making everything beautiful for her and for being so warm and kind to me and to our family.
I want to comment Pat and his staff for the amazing job they did for my family when my mom passed away. Pat was there for my family and I though an extremely difficult time with compassion, excellent service and communication. Extreme gratitude from the Felix Family
My grandfather passed a few years ago and I was blown away by the professionalism and care presented to me by this staff. Last week my family unfortunately suffered a very unexpected loss and I knew there was no other funeral home to trust. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us in every way imaginable while expressing genuine compassion. I can not say enough good things. My family will use this establishment forever and ever!
Many Thanks to the Owner, all the Funeral Directors and staff. The team at Schaefer Funeral Home were professional, polite, kind hearted, and respectful. They brightened the mood through dignified conduct and planing foresight. They were very accommodating to requests, and there were no hidden issues that emerged in the background. There was no fine print. They have great cross communication skills and honest business practices, a rarity in today’s day. Their prices were comparable to that of other funeral homes near by, and they have more to offer than their competitors which initially caught my attention.
But then upon meeting the staff and throughout the viewing and burial, they proved to have what I feel is the golden standard for client care and service. Without customizing and catering to the needs of the grieving, those already suffering would be re-injured and overburdened... thankfully that was not the case here. There were no causes for concern, and everything went smoothly. Dignity was maintained in my fathers death as it was in life. I am impressed with the service here and the comfort I received. With my deepest gratitude. EJ.
I would like to thank the kind and compassionate service I received for my father . The whole team were professional and sympathetic. I highly recommend this place to anyone needing service.
Again thank you
I will definitely recommend Pat and his team to anyone. They were compassionate and professional and made my family and I feel like a member of the family. I truly appreciate the great service my family and I received at an extremely difficult time, from the beginning with the paperwork until the end at the gravesite.
The worst nightmare is planning your child’s funeral. Our prayer was that one day she would plan ours. Unfortunately that nightmare became our reality. Pat you were so compassionate and helpful even when we couldn’t think of what was needed. You said you would make everything perfect and it was. But that was our Abby, perfect in every way. For that you will always hold a special place in our hearts. You and your staff have our heartfelt gratitude for planning and assisting us with the arrangements. God bless you all.
Thank you Pat and everyone at the funeral home who helped me and my family cope to be able to arrange a beautiful ceremony for both my sister and mother who passed away last year.
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.
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.
Erin was terrific!
Made a difficult time and process easy.
I like your courtesy and compassion.
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.
