What Our Families Are Saying

I just want to say Thank You to Larry Sylvia and all his staff. They went above and beyond to help our family and to make sure all our wishes were met. We wanted certain music as my husband was an avid music lover. They made a track with all the music I requested. They set up a beautiful video and played it even though I sent pictures to them at the last minute. They made me and my family comfortable and they were attentive and caring. I would highly recommend Fairhaven Funeral Home.
