We would like to commend and thank Billy Kiley for doing such an outstanding job in handling my father's wake/funeral arrangements for Roman Jachowicz. Billy was kind, compassionate, efficient, and responded immediately to our requests. Billy expedited a quick flight for my Dad's return to Illinois from Florida. We can't thank him enough. Billy helped make our transition time bearable and comforting. We were reassured everything was being handled.

Thank you Chris, Mike, and staff for handling Mom's funeral arrangements with dignity, compassion, sincerity, and professionalism. It meant so much to us at a very difficult time. The DVD added a very special touch and was put together beautifully. I know Mom would have been pleased, as she was 13 years ago when you took care of our Dad's arrangements.

Just want to thank all of you for the compassion and kindness that was shown to myself and my family, with the loss of my husband. Mike was our “Angel” through those difficult days. Always around to answer questions, showing us where to stand, what to do, etc. I will be forever grateful to him. He made the most difficult time in my life so much more bearable.

I cannot say enough about the wonderful service provided by Sheehy Funeral Home for the funeral of my father. Bill, the Director we worked with, went above and beyond to provide amazing attention to detail, care for family members, arranging all parts of our wake and funeral service, etc. All staff members were magnificent in assisting and providing services. Mr. Sheehy, himself, checked on us during the wake and came to help direct the funeral mass and procession to the cemetery. I’m truly certain my father picked Sheehy himself knowing that dignity and grace, elegance and class, would be attained through the excellent service you provide. We will continue to recommend you to everyone.

We would like to thank you for your professionalism, loving care, and support during the planning of services for our mother. John, you and your staff made a very difficult time much easier for our family. Every detail was handled with perfection, very well coordinated and we came away glad we chose Sheehy Funeral Home for mom’s services. People may not always express to you just how much you have helped them at such a difficult time, but we know there are a lot of grateful people out there.

Sheehy recently handled the services for my father, Norman Arnos. John Sullivan came to my dad's house and was so kind, respectful and comforting to our family during a very difficult time. We then worked with Bill Kiley who helped us thru the arrangements. Bill made us feel at ease and he took care of every single detail! I think everything was handled perfectly. What a professional group at Sheehy & Sons! Thank you so much!
