My brother and I were overcome with sadness, and overwhelmed with the thought of planning a funeral service for our beloved mom and best friend. We had no idea where to go- but thankfully the first and subsequently last place we went to was Leone’s Funeral Home. Our mom was a truly special lady so we wanted to make sure she received the sendoff and celebration she deserved. From the moment we came in and Michelle greeted us, followed up by Raymond who was amazing throughout the entire process- we knew we weren’t going anywhere else. Thanks to Phil, and Lou for their great service as well. Needless to say, we were extremely satisfied with our choice for mom. Comforting, Accommodating, Sympathetic, Professional, Flexible, Friendly- available at all hours, even after midnight when my mom passed. They made her look beautiful, assisted with all paperwork and phone calls, and gave her the final send off she deserved. And we had numerous guests tell us the same. Thank you guys and God bless.

The Leone Family has been taking care of my family for several years now and there's reason we will always reach out to them during such a sensitive time. They treated my family like their family. They made sure everyone was comfortable and able to mourn privately. My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts, laying my sister Gladys Baez to rest was extremely difficult for the whole family. The Leone family took care of everything and everyone. Raymond and Philip are true gentlemen. Thank you

My family has utilized Leone’s twice for their services and you could not ask for a more kind and caring operation. Ray and Phil are the utmost professionals, they are excellent and do what they say. Their staff are excellent and caring. I rate Leone’s Five stars plus. When you’re at your lowest, the Leone’s make it much easier to deal all that is going on. Great people, great business.

Phillip and Raymond are the best 2 people to go through something like this with. They truly made this so much less painful than it already was. We cannot thank you enough for that. All of our friends and family expressed how lovely the service, arrangements, ceremonial honors, and Dad's preparation were, especially with only just a few hours to work with. We prayed for a miracle, thought it wouldn't come after Dad's death, and then came Leone Funeral Home. They contacted the insurance company, ordered Death Certificates, made all the necessary phone calls to the church, hospital, etc. They did everything that I would have had to think about, that I likely wouldn't have thought about. Even their website had educational guiding next steps that I wasn't aware of. You became family in those 2 days and they offer a beautiful online tribute obituary that you can also purchase as a keepsake book with shared memories and a list of which flowers came from who. They even planted a tree in our Dad's name with the option for others to do the same. Unfortunately, we have experience with other cheap funeral homes in the area whose Director literally stood like a bouncer in front of my Dad, who was just excited to see his brother all dressed. They directed him to make the payment "first things first" and my poor Uncle didn't look at all like himself. Leone's made our Dad look just as he did in life and did NOT feel like just another transactional business at all. Here you get WAY more than what you pay for. The cost was super reasonable and I had no idea how much more would come with the service. God Bless your family for helping so many other families during their worst moments. If Mom was pleased, you know you're A+++++!

Phillip & Raymond...our Dad's wake and funeral could not possibly have gone any better than it did. In just one day to the next, EVERYTHING and I mean everything was so thoroughly thought out and planned for us. You both were my brains, while my mind was stuck in shock. With Military and Police honors and ceremonial send-offs, I didn't even know where to start, but you did. To have you both gently and literally carry us through this, has meant the world to us. Thanks for treating Mom like your Mom and the cleverness in planning for her mobility. She felt special and cared about and so did the rest of us. I never thought I would LOVE sending him off to his final resting place, until we did it with you. It was beautiful and we received many compliments about the services. You have the right formula & Raymond (the short, cute, funny one) added smiles when we needed them. Phillip (the tall, handsome, sensitive one) made sure that we knew that we had just become part of the Leone family. With all our hearts, THANK YOU for everything!!!

There are no words to express how Phillip & Raymond made me feel after loosing my husband. They took care of him as if he was one of their own, and they made sure all our wishes were fulfilled better then we could have ever imagined. They went above and beyond to make me feel as comfortable as I did having this been my first time loosing a loved one at only 32 with a brand new baby. My sincere thanks to the Leone Brothers without them & their support I would have not been able to do this on my own .

Dear Ray and Phil Words could never express the deep gratitude my family and I have for both of you. My mom, Patricia Coles expressed to me a few years ago that if anything happens to her, she wanted to go to Leone's. Well now I know that was one of the best decisions my mom made and I did not questions. You are truly professionals to your trade. You made what was an unbearable time, seamless to the point that I felt like I was being carried through this difficult time. From beginning to end with such dignity and class just as my mom would have wanted. Sincerely THe Coles Family

My beautiful sister passed away 16 months ago. From the very first moment I met Phillip Leone, I knew my sister would be cared for. I brought the clothing that Bethie would wear while respects were being paid to her. Phillip was so gentle and kind. And then throughout the next two days either Phillip or Raymond was there, overseeing what my family might possibly need. It was an extreme measure of comfort. Thank you.

I just wanted to say thank you so very much for all your kindness. I and my little sister, Teresa, are so truly grateful and thankful for the both of you. We are truly blessed. I spoke to "mother Grace", this morning. She is still having a difficult time, but when I mentioned you "boys" she seemed better. That put a smile in my heart. And isn't that what it's really about, Philip and Raymond? Thanks for your "listening ears" with all my "life stories". One thing that was reconfirmed, Debbie now is the time to start writing your stories. People enjoy them and it puts a smile in their hearts too I will be praying for you both. I will be praying for your mother. Prayer works, and Bill's Uncle Tom can testify to that when I prayed in your funeral home about Elaine getting to the church on time as they were caught in traffic, and things were not looking too good. But......God Bless you and yours, Deborah

The Rivera Family would like to express our most heart-felt thanks to the Leone Staff for your thoughtfulness, sensitivity and gentle manner during our time of sadness and grief. Your attention to details gave the dignity, respect and honor we so much wanted to have for our mother/grandmother. You guided us and made recommendations to ease the painful process. A special thanks to Philip, you were timely and more importantly compassionate. You didn't rush us or make us feel that it was just business as usual. You took the time to make this sorrowful event feel personal. Everything was handled with such professionalism that we did not have to worry about any details. We don’t know what we would have done or how we would have made it without your support and overall help.

The Rivera Family

Thank you Raymond and Philip for the wonderful and caring treatment and handling of Frank Cimato and Sal Fontana. I can't say enough about everything you did and all of the details you each took care of so that we did not have to. For both of these beloved men to be taken from my family within two days of one another, it was a blessing and a God-send to have them in your capable hands. Thank you and God bless you.

Elizabeth Fontana-Pepe

Dear Raymond and Philip: I just want to thank the two of you for taking such wonderful care of my daughters Jessica and Melissa, Frank's daughter Vanessa, all the Cimatos' and Fontana's, and for the professional, yet loving way you guided me through the deaths of both my husband and my father. I am eternally grateful to both of you for taking my back when needed, and protecting me from all the chaos I felt around me, and for giving both my husband and my father dignity and respect, and this means the world to me. Please don't forget us, we won't forget you two, we loved you both when we first met you when Frank Sr. passed in 1999, and have felt a bond ever since.

Marian Cimato

Dear Raymond and Philip, I just wanted to thank you from the heart for such a exceptional job you did on my Godmother. On behalf of the Smith family, words could not express the impression you have left a grieving family and truly showed sincere compassion. You two men went above and beyond and worked with us with what we had. You two assisted us with such a wonderful send off and treated us like family. I truly thank you. My father was right about you guys, he always said that "the Leone's are good honest people". I wish you many more years of servicing your community and feel they are lucky to have such good businessmen that meet the people where there at and make things happen. If there is anything I can do to assist with in the future feel free to ask.

Tracey Egan

I would like to take this opportunity to express to you my sincerest gratitude for the services you have offered to my aunt, Joyce Thiello, regarding the reposing and funeral of Ronald Thielo.I find myself compelled to write this letter.The excellence, caring and professionalism performed by your funeral home is something I have never encountered before.Joyce was originally looking to go with a funeral home that has serviced our family for many years and by chance your funeral home was mentioned.From the original phone call you made us feel comfortable and assured that things were handled with the utmost importance and care.I am comfortable in knowing that when future cicumstances require the need for services, Leone’s will be the only place I will need to look. Thank you again.

Michael Castro

There are not enough words to express my thanks to both of you and the wonderful care you gave to me and my family at our time of need. It’s true, you always make us feel like part of your family. All my love.

Provenzano Family

Raymond and Philip Leone helped to make a very difficult event go very smoothly when my youngest brother Christopher passed away. I had no idea there were so many details to arranging a funeral. The Leone brothers were always available and very responsive and hands on to my questions and requests. They saw to everything and helped me to get through this tragedy. I am so grateful for that.

Eugene Clifford and Family

I would like to thank Raymond and Philip Leone for the Queens funeral that they gave to my mother Carmen Lara. You took such great care with the one person who means the most to us, our mom. Our mother was always a beautiful woman and never looked her age. At the age of 95 you made her look like she was 75. Everyone who attended the funeral said as much. From the largest detail to the smallest detail you took extreme care with it all. You showed nothing but compassion to my family. I couldn't have made it through the last few days without the two of you. You helped myself and my family get through the toughest time of our lives. All my sister Diana and I had to do was tell you about our wonderful, beautiful mother and you took care of the rest. From the message on the cards that read like her children wrote them, to the flowers, to the video of our mothers and our life, and then the burial. Every detail was done to perfection with kindness and compassion. I/we will never forget how you treated my family like we were your family. Although I/we are in so much pain you did everything you could to try to ease that pain for us. I/we are forever grateful for all you have done for us.
