“My initial experience with Janowicz Funeral Home was with Melissa when my husband and I met with her to do some initial planning and also to have some questions answered. We both found her to be ultimately professional , friendly, and very kind. After my husband died, my son and I dealt mostly with Hannah and were equally impressed with her professionalism and care. She was there immediately when we had questions and most often anticipated things before we even asked the question. Hannah was thorough, considerate, kind and ultimately professional every step of the way. She could not have been more helpful and I would not hesitate to recommend Janowicz Family Funeral Home to anyone.”

“I have assisted family members with planning services for loved ones around the country and those funeral homes were polite and professional enough. But when it came time for me to work with Janowicz to, at first, complete the pre-planning of our mother's services and then a short time later follow through after she passed, Hannah's compassion, patience, and guidance were so heart-warming! She allowed all the time I needed to share with her a sort of history of our large family, some of the fun times we had and the individual love our parents gave to each of us. Hannah helped me to make decisions on some of the very important matters to ensure that everything was perfectly done in the manner Mom would have wanted. God certainly blessed us when He led our family to Janowicz Funeral Home. Thank you so very much for your kindness! Family of Marge Hicks”

Thanks again, Tammy”
