We receive many letters from the families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss. Their words warm our hearts, and speak to you of our professionalism, compassion, and the true value of the services we provide.

Our mother was living in CA. When we learned that her health was failing we knew that we needed to make plans for her funeral early because of the fact we needed to deal with her return to NJ. We contacted Rocco at Kurzawa's. He was most understanding and helped us plan everything in advance so that when the time came, Mom would be able to return home with out any last minute problems. When Mom did pass Rocco took care of everything. We just needed to show up. Every detail was handled the day of the wake and funeral by Rocco and his staff. It was more than we could have asked for. Thank you for all that you did to make an extremely difficult time easier for us. Toni Potthoff. Ida Snyder and Maria Matheny

Our family had suffered the loss of my father in July so when my grandmother died early in November, we were devastated. From the moment Rocco from Kurzawa funeral got on the phone with my mom and I, it was as if we were talking to family. It never felt like a business, or a transaction. It was always a conversation that made us feel supported and secure that all would be taken care of and be ok. As a family we cannot express how grateful we are for your kindness and care during this time.

I was honored to be a part of the Memorial Tree Lighting Ceremony on December 11th, 2019. Your staff is so dedicated to making this ceremony a special time of remembrance to those who have lost loved ones. You handled the event with such compassion and tenderness. I witnessed people come in with a heavy heart and leave with their spirits lifted. During this Christmas season, this ceremony was a beautiful gift to all of those who attended it. Many thanks to all of the staff, especially Rocco for making this possible. Chaplain Mario Spadaro

Rocco and the staff of Kurzawa Funeral Home were not just professional but anticipated our family’s needs. At a time when it was so difficult to think, having someone like Rocco attend to details and arrangements was instrumental in having the memorial service we wanted for my mom. His sensitivity and expertise were enhanced by his ability to get everything done that we asked. He was able to work quickly and to coordinate every step of the memorial in order to provide a beautiful, unique service. He was very easily accessible. Rocco is extremely supportive and his calm guidance throughout the whole experience made everything as easy as it could have been at such a difficult time. Additionally, his website offers extensive resources for grieving families. He also made himself available to us not just around the time of the memorial service, but even a year later when we needed his help transferring my mom’s ashes. Every interaction with Rocco went smoothly and felt like he had nothing but our state of mind foremost in his.

I would like to commend Rocco for 'over the top' customer service. He is very compassionate and understanding and deserves a 5 star rating. During this most difficult time, he guided us and helped us every step of the way. He is attentive and shows 'great care' towards his customers. I sincerely appreciate the professional manner in the way he worked with me and my wife. He deserves to be recognized for his care.

The staff at Kurzawa Funeral Home was absolutely wonderful. During this difficult time we were handled with great care and compassion. They treated us more like family or friends than clients, or customers. Our family was beyond pleased with the result and service. With Loving Appreciation, The Jasovsky Family

Hi, I don’t write many reviews. Has to be very deserving either for good or bad. This one is exceptionally great. Our Dad passed away August 14, 2020. In the midst of the chaos of the pandemic. The passing of a family member is a very earth rocking event without a world gone crazy in a pandemic. Emotions run high, many things get left up in the air, where do you turn first? Well, I am very very grateful that when I turned around and round to try and figure out what happens next, that I was fortunate enough to have called upon Rocco and his team at Kurzawa Funeral Home. He could not have possibly been more helpful - really unbelievable for us. Our Dad passed suddenly and my brother and I had never had to deal with making any type of arrangements like this before. Rocco was so very kind and understanding. I know, people in this business are supposed to be, after all, they are dealing with families that have lost someone, but the kindness and understanding and guidance we had from Rocco and staff was next level. Given all the current obstacles from Covid, the safe guidelines, the ever changing rules of gatherings, the county offices not being fully functional for proper documents and paperwork that goes along with the passing of a loved one, it can seem insurmountable - Rocco helped us thru it all, even with things that were not necessarily in his purview to be responsible for - he was there - generously helpful, every detail, follow-up,even while he himself was under the weather. I cannot possibly say enough, we are forever grateful. Sincerely, Len House

Rocco, Words cannot express the gratitude my brother and his wife (Chester & Sandy Klein) have for you in their time of need. Losing their son, Bryan Klein was very difficult for them. But, what you have done for them is above and beyond and for that we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. As per our conversation on Tuesday, when this pandemic is over, we would like to have a memorial service for Bryan to celebrate his live. Again thank you for all you have done. May God bless you and your family. Have a Blessed Easter. Sincerely, Halina Dominick

Rocco made a devastating experience of losing Mom into an experience of positive memories, leaving smiles on everyones faces and feeling blessed, as he really captured her spirit. All who came feeling sad left feelings uplifter with positive memories of her. I know Mom was looking down saying "This is a real tribute... a proper send off!" My initial concerns of what had to be done faded quickly as Rocco walked me through everything, step by step, explaining everything, with patience, kindness and respect. Thank you so much for everything! Balicki Family

Kurzawa Funeral Home: Losing a loved one is never easy. My mom unfortunately passed away from a rough battle with ALS in early April. Watching her suffer was more than my family and I could take...that's when Rocco and his team came to the rescue. Rocco was more than supportive and understanding. He helped us take a breath with the confidence of knowing "mom"was well taken care of. His staff was patient, and took care of all of the arrangements flawlessly. Further, he took the time to explain the process, take my many calls about how the process would be carried out and made sure EVERYTHING was handled with the utmost respect and care. Pricing was more than fair and truthfully more affordable than most other funeral homes. However, the real difference between Rocco and his team, is that the fair cost, was met with the highest level of service we could have asked for. Sadly, no one wants to see a loved one go. Kurzawa allowed my family to grieve and treated my mom with the care she deserved! Thank You Rocco and the team at Kurzawa! Sincerely, Owen Kessler

The total experience offered by Rocco and Nick was completely filled with compassion and understanding. They were able to give to my family the knowledge that they cared to make this experience very heartfelt and as gentle as possible. This was not an easy time for our family but through Kurzawa's we persevered and genuinely thank them and all who supported us during our grieving.

During this trying time, the Kurzawa Funeral Home's personnel provided my family with extraordinary care, guiding us thru a very difficult process. Their attention to details ensured that all things regarding honoring our mother were addressed. Rocco was aware of our pain in the loss of our mother and attended to our every needs immediately and with respect. Thank You for excellently assisting us in saying "good-bye" to our precious mother.
