We want to thank you for your superb service and your kind, thoughtful employees. Words can not do justice to the wonderful care we received. The gentleman in charge of our time with you was Chris Gillis...we were so impressed with the care given to our family...Doherty Funeral Home is a well-run organization and having been in business for myself, I know how important it is to have employees that make it look easy, even though it is not. All of your employees that we came in contact with, could not have been nicer. From your office staff, to Chris, to all of the gentlemen who looked out for us in every way the night of the viewing and the day of the funeral - We could not have been more impressed or pleased. You did an absolute miracle in preparing my sister to be viewed. I was with her when she passed and I know how terribly ill she looked. To say I was surprised to see her looking like her own, beautiful self would be an understatement. I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for a making a truly sad situation into one that ran smoothly and allowed our family to say goodbye to my sister in a dignified and loving manner.
