John and Scott were so kind and considerate when our dog Stewie passed away. He died in his sleep on a Friday night. They were here in 15 minutes on a Saturday morning. We appreciate their kindness and professionalism during a difficult day. We have nothing but great things to say about this organization.

They did a wonderful job having my husband funeral . I also pre planned my funeral .They are super nice also.
John and Anthony went above and beyond every expectation I had during a difficult time.
Thank you for all you did for my family.
My elderly mother died very unexpectedly from COVID. Fortunately for us, she'd planned for her passing years prior. The funeral home took such good care in making sure that her wishes were carried out. There was one change due to unforeseen circumstances on my mom's part; and they were very upfront with that. I feel like she could not have gotten any better care. I also feel like the family could not have had any better care. They were very sensitive to our family's grief for an unexpected passing of a loved one. Prior to meeting with the funeral home, I was warned about funeral homes, in general, trying to upsell families on what was already planned by the deceased. I can honestly and happily say that such things never took place. For example, my mom did not want to have flowers unless they were sent by others. They didn't have to tell us that. In our grief, they could have sold us anything; but they didn't. They were honest and extremely helpful; and I am extremely grateful, and I know my family is as well.
My heartfelt thanks to Greco's for the wonderful funeral they provided for my husband, who passed away this past summer.
Anthony,Scot & John were very caring,kind and knowledgeable and fulfilled every request our family had from the Heartfelt Obituary to the moving service with Military Honors to delivering Plants and Gifts to our home following the services.
At a time like this, one needs kindness,compassion and guidance and they certainly provided that to our family. Our sincere thanks and appreciation for all you did for us and the way you honored my husband’s memory.
In the last 30 years I have had the privilege of using Greco-Hertnick on two occasions. The building is very accommodating, and has a vintage mystique with modern amenities. The staff is second to none! Treating my family with compassion, and care. assembling a beautiful Catholic mass, along with St Paul's church giving my mom the send off to be the Lord To the staff thank you from the bottom of my heart for your treatment & care.
We have nothing but praise for all the Greco-Hertnick Funeral Home employees. At the time of such sorrow in the loss of our son Benton, our family was treated with gentle care and kindness. The quality of care for our son and respect given to him was such a comfort. Thank you.
My dear mother recently passed away and my father made her funeral arrangements through Greco-Hertnick. Their presentation of her and the service that followed were absolutely beautiful. It was better than I could have imagined, and I am certain that my mother would have been pleased with the staff's professionalism and kindness. In a time of such vast sorrow, I am grateful to know that my mother was ushered into her final journey by a very talented and thoughtful group of people. I thank them all.
