Marleigh follows the lead of service dogs often used in health care settings, such as hospitals, nursing homes and Universities. She provides families with unconditional love and support, as well as a subtle distraction from their grief.
As the most preferred funeral home in Weirton and surrounding communities, Greco-Hertnick is the only firm in Brooke and Hancock Counties to have a “Comfort Dog” on staff. Marleigh soothes grieving families with her calming presence when her presence is requested. This is especially helpful when families bring children to the funeral home. Greco-Hertnick does everything within its capabilities to make its facilities warm and comforting.
Outside of her duties, Marleigh is a cheerful family dog, and loves cuddling with her family at home, going for walks, and playing in the yard.

I have been attending funerals at Greco-Hertnick Funeral Home since I was in grade school, so, it has been over 40 years. Many relatives, including my father were laid to rest by this caring and professional staff. In recent years, my mother has lost two sisters. John Greco has, in both instances, treated her with kindness, respect and a tenderness that goes beyond what is required of the services provided by a funeral home. I would like to thank him and all of the staff for everything that was done. It meant so much to my mother, and to me and my siblings, that she was able to say good-bye to her loved ones with a funeral home that treats their clients as family. Thank you so very much!
