Initally, this gentleman was nice and helpful. But, the moment I called him to inform him that we made other arrangments, he became nasty and belligerent, Stating " how dare you wait 4 days to tell me that you made other arrangements. He then stated that I had no respect for my loved one, leaving their remains at the hands of the county for 4 days and that Karma is real. I was so angry I hung the phone up on him and pleaded the blood of Jesus. What does Karma have to do with changing your plans for the remains of a loved one. This man has no idea what our families finance situation is and he had the nerve to make jugdement. I believe in karma and we are very good people. When a loved one passes and they don't have a life insurance policy or money saved for proper arrangments. It's left at the hands of the family to handle the situation. On that note, thank you Peter Dohanich for your insensitivity towards our family and the situation. God bless!

STOP!!! Whatever "negative" review that has ever been posted for this fine man and his company...disregard it! My brother passed away late afternoon, Friday 8/18/17. His passing was sudden and not expected. Years ago our Aunt gave him a plot in Mt. Hebron cemetery (Queens). My brother had asked for the simplest of burials, with only a graveside service. I called Peter on Saturday, still in shock and knowing that he was our last hope as far as a low cost burial.The web can be a scary place and littered with scams. His price was almost too good to be true. Only 63 yrs old, my brother had no money put aside yet for his funeral. He lived alone and had no savings.The least expensive price for a graveside burial (not including the cost paid to the cemetery for opening up the grave) was 6-8 thousand dollars! And that was with a simple Star of David pine casket. Peter was very respectful. He explained how he had years of experience in the business and had worked for some of the well known funeral homes.I liked his straightforward demeanor. His fee was INCREDIBLY reasonable. I am not going to go into all the details. What I will say is that this fine man made an incredibly sad and stressful few days MUCH easier.He saved us THOUSANDS of dollars. Thank you Peter, Jack and Theresa. It was beautiful and my family will always be grateful .

This was the cheapest price for terrific service. I see 1 review that's not good here but I totally disagree. This service was so efficient and friendly and went out of their way to do a fantastic job. The other reviewer is wrong and obviously has other problems and took it out on the funeral home. There are wackos out there unfortunately. Use this service if you care about saving money and want respect. I called around to other company's and they act like they are cheaper but nickel and dime you and in end they are not cheaper. Dohanich is the best.

Acted like he was doing us the biggest favor by lowering the price, then insisted that we had assets that we didn't have and jacked up the price again before hanging up on us. He's clearly only in the business for the money, and cares nothing for the plight of families. Ironically, he dropped the name of another home that charged us even less. Thank you!

I was so satisfied with the friendly and caring service. I recommended this service to a friend who was also very happy with everything. If you want a great value you get your money's worth and a whole lot more. So professional and efficient.
