I can’t thank Anthony Perniciaro and everyone at McLoughlin & Mason Funeral Home enough. You went above and beyond the call of duty for the services for my father, Allen M. Bailey. Every request I made was met, including the fact that my father’s burial occurred on Tuesday, March 14, 2017, the day that Winter Storm “Stella” hit New York State. In the days leading up to the storm, Anthony ensured me that we would be able to complete the burial that day if we so wished. I did not want to postpone the event; storm or no storm. I could have been told that attempting the burial that day was out of the question, with good reason. But Anthony let me make the call and we succeeded with the funeral and the burial in the midst of a major snowstorm. Everyone at M&M did their BEST to make sure that my family was transported safely to and from the funeral home, the church, and the cemetery. The burial ceremony went very smoothly given the circumstances. Anthony apologized to me that there would be no tent set up at the grave site due to the wind conditions, and so he supplied all who attended the ceremony with big umbrellas for protection. Finally, the fact that we were able to hold the burial ceremony in the snowstorm allowed me to create a memory that will be with me forever. My father introduced me to the world of music, and as a last goodbye I wanted to play a song on my guitar that he used to sing to me when I was a young boy sitting on his lap. As the snow was coming down, Anthony held an umbrella over me while I played the song. Most of New York State was shut down that day, but I was still able to honor my father as intended. I never heard the word “no”, “too cold”, “too snowy”, “too anything” from Anthony. Thank you so much Anthony and Mason & McLoughlin for an absolutely wonderful service. My family and I are truly grateful for your attention to our needs and your dedication to your practice.

During this very difficult time when I didn't know how or what to plan you patiently guided us thru the various options and offered suggestions that resulted in a very comforting service. I will always be grateful for your expert and professional help.
Dear Anthony, Thank you so much for all you did to guide us through the process of planning my father's arrangements, to overseeing them - carrying them out so beautifully. We truly felt Dad's wishes were met - no small fete as you may recall! You and your nephew were a pleasure to deal with in the most unpleasant of situations and you both handled everything perfectly for which my family is truly grateful.
Sincerely, Donna Gedeon
