Our family would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to Pat and the staff at Driscoll Funeral Home. We lost two family members within weeks of each other, and the team at Driscoll's was professional, responsive accommodating, and paid great attention to every detail. We received numerous compliments from family and friends on the gorgeous funeral home, the exceptional video presentations they prepared, and the overall experience of attending the wakes and services. It was important to us that everything be as special and memorable as our loved ones, and Driscoll's was able to accomplish that goal. Our family thanks you all sincerely.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Patrick Driscoll and his dedicated staff for their invaluable support and exceptional service. Pat's kindness, patience, and guidance were instrumental at every stage of the process. The professionalism and pleasant demeanor exhibited by his team were notable, and they consistently made themselves readily available. Patrick and his team went above and beyond to accommodate our needs, making this difficult experience seamless. Having visited several funeral homes in the area, it became evident that Driscoll Funeral stood out and that their prices were remarkably competitive. With the support of Patrick Driscoll and his team we were able to give our mother (Miriam E. Horton) a beautiful and well deserved farewell and for that we thank them!
My family and I want to thank Pat and his team for making such a difficult time much easier. They took care of everything for our family and put together a wonderful video we will cherish forever. They are very well organized and caring. Thank you again!
My family would like to thank Pat and his team for taking care of 3 of our loved ones that have passed over the last 5 years. The stress of loss is an extremely difficult time in our lives and every loss is different. We knew each time that we could trust Driscoll Funeral Home to guide us through the process with compassion and care for our loved ones with the utmost of respect.
We recently had my mother's services at Driscolls funeral home. It was pre-planned by her so that made the decision making part easier. Pat and Chris, as well as other staff, are so very professional with great attention to every detail. From setting up family photos to display, the flowers , the picture and music video. Top notch from start to finish and they helped make my moms passing a little easier with their wonderful and kind service to us and our family. Having used them for my dad's services 18 months ago, it was just as perfect as it was for his. Not one complaint, they go above and beyond with their professional service and beautiful, inviting and warm space to celebrate your loved one's life. Thank you again for everything Donna Ferlito-Brown and Tom Ferlito
Pat and his team went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect , as well as done easily, helping the family immensely at our most difficult time. We have used other funeral homes in the area, and nothing compared to the professionalism, attention to detail, and helpfulness that Driscoll provided.
I truly appreciate all of Patrick, Anne Marie and all the staff for helping in a very difficult time. You all are so caring and quick to answer or get the answers from another. Keep up the family focus and true hearts of concern. I know that I couldn't have asked for a better group to help my family and myself. They all go way above and beyond in the circumstances. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your care and support.
When a loved one passes away, you are suddenly forced to make choices and decisions that you had thought wouldn't be necessary until some future time, and that moment has come. Your mind is racing with questions like where to start and who to call. Thank God the Driscoll Funeral Home took my initial call. Chris and Pat were amazing; they instantly made you feel at ease and guided you through the procedure by providing a thorough explanation of each step. We received excellent information, and the cost was also very affordable. When my father unexpectedly passed away, Pat acted quickly and took care of everything. That mental calm was such a gift. Working with Driscoll's Funeral Home has been an absolute joy. I feel at ease knowing that I can contact you anytime I need you in the future.
Thank you again Pat & Chris for your loving care. -The Desjardins Family
Dear Mr. Driscoll and associates, Thank you for handling my mother's funeral, as well as my father's, with such dignity, kindness and patience. You do God's work and you do it with grace. Sincerely, Jennifer Cook and Christopher Cook
Driscoll’s made a difficult, hard and unexpected event for us quite bearable. The team goes above and beyond duty, readily available to speak to you at a moments notice and patiently help you process the situation you are facing. Pat knew just what to say and advise in my situation as I had a parent that did not plan very well for end of life arrangements on every front - he relieved the immediate stress of realizing I also had an unexpected financial reality quickly in-front of me with my fathers passing and was willing to take it one step at a time , gave lots of advice and options while I sorted out some important things in-between. Once that was sorted he went right to work when I needed him to and did about everything for me down to the flowers for the celebration of life we held onsite at his facilities. The property is beautifully maintained and updated , does not carry off a grim dark sad victorian feel like a traditional funeral home … very modern and breathes light, love and family connection which is very important when handling your loved ones. Pricing was very fair for the immediate area as well, he will do whatever he can to meet your needs. Even though my father did not really plan well , I believe Driscolls gave him above and beyond what he would of ever imagined for himself. Passing of loved ones is a sensitive topic for ourselves , let alone our parents - grandparents to face before that day comes … I would always choose Driscolls as my loved ones place to go to rest and for immediate comfort for the grieving family members.
Many thanks to the entire staff at Driscoll Funeral Home for making my mothers funeral mass such a peaceful celebration. I met with the staff about 6 months ago to preplan everything and it was such a relief to have that done prior to my mother's passing. They took care of all the necessary arrangements and set the stage for a beautiful ceremony. Our family continue to comment of how wonderful things were under somewhat of a sad and difficult time. Thank you very much.
Our dad passed away 2 months ago , he and my mom pre-planned everything which was a huge help when your family is distraught over the loss of a loved one. Patrick and Ann Marie followed everything to the letter with kindness, compassion and e excellent service from start to finish. Their employees as well during the wake were top notch. We can't speak highly enough about the professional service we received but with a caring and kindness that was not unnoticed making a difficult situation much easier to deal with. Thank you so very much Donna Ferlito-Brown and Tom Ferlito
With memorable thoughts and a kind thank you to Pat Driscoll. The passing of my Dad was sad for all in my family. Your service and tribute to my father's full life and heritage would have made him proud. You and your staff gave my family comfort and support. Your unsurpaseed attention to the small details and the veterans honors service gave us a feeling of tribute which we will remember here on. God Bless.
Thank you to Pat and everyone at Driscoll for their help and kindness at a difficult time. They were patient in answering my many questions, willing to change my father’s obituary several times over, and always were very quick to respond. I highly recommend them!
We lost our extraordinary Mom recently. She had all of her arrangements planned except for the funeral home. We’ve unfortunately lost many family members and have used many funeral homes. We recalled Mom saying she really liked Driscoll after attending a wake there. The family decided to go with them. Wow! We couldn’t have been more pleased with the empathy, professionalism and attention to detail that made an incredibly sad life moment a little more bearable. I can’t thank the Driscoll team enough! I changed my funeral declaration to request that Driscoll handles my arrangements as opposed to another funeral home I was very impressed with. I think that is much more telling than just saying I recommend them.
Pat and his team did an amazing job from start to finish. They were so kind, gentle, and accommodating to our needs. He was so patient and explained the whole process to us in detail without overwhelming us, and it made the whole situation easier. We are forever grateful for their service and to be able to send our loved one off respectfully, was a such a blessing.
Here are a few facts as to why I highly recommend Driscoll Funeral Home and give them a Five Star Rating! Since this process is such an intimate and emotional time for family and friends, Pat and his staff treat you like family from start to finish. They are very accommodating. Also, I really like the fact that the atmosphere is warm and inviting like being in your own home. Plus, they only do one service at a time so there is no confusion or interference. You receive their undivided attention. The surroundings are beautiful and are enhanced by the choice of your photos and music.
I would highly recommend Driscoll Funeral Home. Thank you Pat and Anne-Marie for helping my family during this difficult time. You were both professional and went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. Thank you again for your care and compassion.
Dear Pat and associates,
I wanted to let you know my gratitude towards all of your help with the loss of Paul G. Deady. Your kindness and the care of helping me through the details of his passing and the professionalism shown was everything anyone could ever ask for in times such as these. You were wonderful and I thank you from my heart. Sincerely, Jennifer Boisselle
We are so thankful to have chosen Driscoll Funeral Home for our son's funeral. They did so much and more for us during this time with every detail taken care of and with thoughtful remembrances of Gary given to us.
I cannot speak highly enough about Driscoll's funeral home. Pat and his team are very professional and made a difficult time much easier on us, taking care of all the little details. I would like to thank Patrick sincerely for all he did to make a very difficult time in our lives so much more manageable. I Really appreciate everything you did Pat.
Thank you so much, U. Patel
Pat, Thank you for all the help you gave us over the past year, from the day my mom died, until the day we were able to have a proper memorial service. Besides the usual turmoil surrounding a death in the family, we were out of state, and Covid was restricting travel. From my first phone call to you where you said "don't worry, we'll take care of everything", I knew we were in good hands. Now, a year later, you helped us with all the little details that made for a beautiful memorial service and we've finally been able to have closure. I can't thank you enough.
Nobody wants to bury a parent, but a difficult time was made much easier with the amazing service we received at Driscoll Funeral Home. Every detail of the calling hours and funeral service were done with care. The staff was caring and we couldn't have been happier with the service we received.
Planning a funeral is not a "fun" thing to do, but at some point in your life a necessity. Pat was extremely helpful both times I reached out. Everything was explained perfectly, all calls or texts were immediately responded to and the entire process was a smooth as it could be. Thank you to Pat and his staff for making this the easiest part of the process.
Thank you so much for all your kindness shown to me and my family. William A Walo was my husband of 60 years, the father of 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 2 great grandsons. He will be missed but never forgotten.
I can't speak highly enough about Driscoll's funeral home. Pat and his team are very professional and made a difficult time much easier on us, taking care of all the little details. The facility is beautiful, and we received many compliments on how beautiful the service was.
Thank you Pat for being so kind during such a difficult time for me and my family. I really appreciate all the effort that went into making my husbands service so beautiful.
I wanted to personally thank Patrick Driscoll and the entire staff at Driscoll Funeral Home. We recently lost our beloved father/grandfather. Pat and his staff were incredibly compassionate and professional in every aspect. Every time I brought up a subject of what had to be done, Pat would say “we will take care of that for you” and he did! The funeral home was spacious, airy and bright; and, as all my family/friends said “not depressing”. Their genuine caring and compassion truly made a difference to my family during this difficult time.
I'd like to thank Patrick sincerely for all that he did to make a very difficult time in our lives so much more manageable. He walked through everything slowly and patiently with my siblings and I. He answered all of our question no matter what time of day. He was very patient and understanding when we weren't quite familiar with getting the slide show photos uploaded to him and believe me there were many photos coming at him. There are 6 siblings and he captured all of our photos and wishes perfectly and professionally. I'll never forget what a sweet and kind person he was.
I am so grateful for Pat and his team at Driscoll Funeral Home...he took great care with us and our beloved mother. As she was declining, in her last weeks, Pat and his sister Anne-Marie made themselves available to answer questions and they offered heartfelt reassurances that our mom would be in the best of hands when she did pass. Pat made the planning and exectution of our memorial wishes go smoothly. He was quick to respond and was so respectful of our grieving process. The tribute video and the memorial service was absolutel
With the unexpected passing of my husband, I remember the hospital asking me which funeral home, I had no idea what to say. One of my family members mentioned Driscoll. Pat Driscoll and staff were so kind to my sister, as she assisted with the arrangements. They quickly communicated and made her aware of the process. She said that Pat and staff were so caring and professional that we all knew that my husband would be handled in the most respectful way. This has been by far the most traumatic loss of my life, since my husband was in the prime of his life and it was completely unexpected, nothing will ease that pain but knowing that he was with such a professional, caring team at Driscoll’s, gives me some peace knowing that during this part of his journey, he was well cared for. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Pat and his staff were highly professional, responsive, and compassionate with our family, attending to all the arrangements and logistics following the passing of my elderly mother. The Bradford facility is outstanding and was more than adequate for the services that we held there in lieu of going to church because of concerns about the pandemic. I would highly recommend Pat and his team to anyone.
Pat and his team at Driscoll were extraordinary. Our family lost two elderly family members in the last 15 months and Driscoll Funeral Homes attended to both. I cannot tell you how much my family and I appreciated Pat’s extraordinary care and approach as he supported us in all the arrangements around both my father and father-in-law’s deaths. He has an approach and tone that is so comforting and reassuring without being condescending or morose. So many of our family and friends were complimentary of the whole process. He both thought of details that we did not, and was creative when a particular tradition did not fit with our family. He had a way of paying attention and creating special tributes unique to my dad. And he was both patient and meticulous in attending to the details that a family in mourning may often forget. Thank you, Pat, for making this final celebration of my father both an amazing tribute to him and a tremendous comfort to his family.
I can’t thank Pat and his wonderful team at Driscoll Funeral Home for everything they did for my family. Pat made a difficult situation so much easier by walking my family through every step, taking care of so much to take any burden off our family, and answering the many questions we had. The funeral home is beautiful and spacious and allowed for us to feel safe, while saying goodbye to my grandfather. They cover every aspect to make it the most special and individualized tribute to your loved ones, including beautiful mementos that my family will forever cherish!
Pat and his team at Driscoll Cares, are amazing, they made a sad and difficult time much easier, the services they provide are above and beyond, My dad would have been so happy with his send off, I recommend Driscoll Cares, you can not get any better services and Care, the team treats you as family, Karen Brown
Pat Driscoll is kind, compassionate and patient and helped make such a difficult process much easier for us to handle. He always responded to every call, text and email within minutes and took the time to answer any question that came up along the way. Pat went above and beyond and made us feel like we were the only family he was working with.
When I called Pat at Driscoll Funeral Home a week or so before my precious severely disabled 19 year old son Logan Todd passed away, I was so scared when you lose a loved one a child at that the process of planning and organizing all the details while you’re trying to grieve, is so overwhelming and disbelief. Pat promised me he would not let Logan be by himself he would go get him anytime I needed and took my call close to midnight. When sitting with Pat at the Funeral Home he was compassionate and his professionalism was very comforting and it allowed us to properly grieve our son while he and his team handled all of the details involved. They took the time to really understand our needs and preferences and made the service very personable. The funeral home is beautiful and also very large which allowed us to feel comfortable having a proper service especially in these times. I can’t thank Pat and his team enough for everything they did for us and for making us feel like family. Thank you for your help in planning our Logan’s beautiful day. The service was done with care and thoughtfulness. Every part of the service was well done and seamless. The remembrance video for Logan was so long,but he sat there an individually scanned every picture an hour and two minute long video was so appreciated and we are grateful to have it. Thank you so much for taking our photos from different members of the family and putting together a wonderful visual of Logan’s life! Logan lived a short life but he lived life and Pat saw that. I couldn’t have asked for anything thing more and I’m so glad I chose Driscoll Funeral Home! Sincerely....Crystal Clark
Pat, Thank you so much for the care and support you and your staff provided to my family this past week. My mother's services were beautiful. My family was impressed with your facilities, the extra care you took to keep everyone safe from COVID and the extra assistance your staff provided as we dealt with the snow this weekend.
My mother passed away in December during the covid crisis in this country. A friend referred me to Pat Driscoll and everything from that point on he made perfect. He is always available with in 5 minutes of every time something came up. His service was the best I have ever dealt with and his pricing was the best in the city. I have found a new funeral home and friend in Pat. What a great experience during the worst time of my life.
Pat and those who work at Driscoll's Funeral have a gift. I lost my Dad in September 2020 and my Mom on Christmas Eve 2020 and we called Driscoll based on a friend's recommendation. God was watching over me because working with Pat was like having my own Guardian angel during the most difficult period in my life. Pat took care of everything and would respond to calls and texts within 5 minutes. Pat really cares and has become part of our family. Thank you so much Pat-we will never forget you.
My father passed on Christmas day and Patrick reached out to me that evening. When I mentioned some of my concerns, his response was "don't worry about it; we'll take care of everything." And they did, every step of the way. Due to the pandemic, our service was extremely small, but Patrick and his team of professionals gave no indication it was of any less importance. The respect and care exhibited by him and his staff was greatly appreciated and very meaningful to us. Thank you again for all of your assistance.
Working with Pat and his team of true professionals made an unthinkably difficult loss at the holidays so much easier. Pat returned our call within 5 minutes that first night. During our meeting, he covered all of my questions even before I asked them. He made suggestions on handling services while meeting our comfort level during Covid. He even called ahead to the florist who greeted us upon our arrival. A truly special touch.
During a second meeting, Pat was incredibly comforting during an especially low moment. I’m so grateful for his kind words that day.
The facility is open, bright, clean and beautiful. This is our second experience within 18 months working with Driscoll’s Funeral Home. Our friends and family have all commented on the impressive facility and level of service we received. I can’t speak highly enough about Pat and his team.
Thank you for your help in planning of our Mom's Funeral. The service was done with care and thoughtfulness. Every part of the service was well done and seamless. The remembrance video for service was appreciated and we are grateful to have it.
Patrick reached out to us less than 10 minutes after our initial call to Driscoll's. He took full control from receiving the body to the cremation, explaining everything to us as we went along. He took the stress off of us so that we could reflect and grieve. I had several questions after the original shock of the death wore off and Patrick answered each and every email, usually within minutes. He is extremely knowledgeable, helpful and thorough. We couldn't have asked for an easier process during this tough time.
My family has trusted Driscoll Funeral Home with two of our loved ones; most recently with the sudden passing of my aunt (and her daughter in 2019). Patrick along with Chris, Peter and Matthew were compassionate, caring and respectful throughout the entire process, which made even more challenging by Covid. But they assisted us in navigating the challenges to accomplish a farewell tribute that was still reflective of our loved one and that she deserved. We truly felt as though we were working with members of our own family by the way Patrick and his team handled every detail with such care. Thank you for the service you provided our family and do for so many others during such a difficult time. You are wonderful.
They were great from the moment I called they where helpful and meet up with us within hours same day and took very good care of a loved one right to the end the service was great I would have to say though the worst part of life they made everything nice and simple once again. Thank you for everything Patrick.
Patrick treated the Valhouli Family as if we were family. He always answered every text and phone call and always got back to us immediately. ALWAYS friendly and considerate. Affection, gentleness, warmth, concern, and care are words that are associated with Patrick Driscoll. The Prayer Cards and Candle came out beautiful. Patrick treated everyone with respect and had a deep understanding of Greek Culture and rituals that were embedded in our family.
Patrick thank you for everything.
When you lose a loved one the process of planning and organizing all the details of a wake and funeral while you’re trying to grieve, can be extremely overwhelming. When sitting with Patrick from Driscoll‘s Funeral Home we found his compassion and professionalism to be very comforting and it allowed us to properly grieve our father while he and his team handled all of the details involved. They took the time to really understand our needs and preferences and made the service very personable. The funeral home is beautiful and also very large which allowed us to feel comfortable having a proper service especially in these times. We can’t thank Patrick and his team enough for everything they did for us and for making us feel like family. Sincerely...The Hackett Family
I am grateful to the Driscoll Family for their guidance in providing a beautiful farewell for my Mom. The funeral home itself is beautiful and peaceful. Pat was extremely professional, attending to all important details, including the ones we forgot in our time of grief. He and the staff were compassionate, patient, and kind. I am forever grateful to them for just how perfect everything was. --Susan Afonso and family
Strongly recommend this family business. When my husband died of Covid19 early on in the pandemic, in April, Pat Driscoll took care of our family's needs and I have no words to express how grateful we are. Strongly endorse Driscoll's invaluable help. Highest level of caring and compassion and attention when you most need it.
Planning a funeral is an extremely difficult, and stressful time. Driscoll Funeral Home is so much more than just a beautiful building and business. They treated me with the greatest respect, and I felt as if I could trust them to help guide me when I suddenly lost my husband. Patrick and Chris always got right back to me, answering any and all of my questions or concerns, even after my husbands service. I truly can’t say enough about the care I received from Patrick Driscoll, and all of his staff❤️
Thank you Patrick for helping me & my family through such an emotional time. You were there every step of the way brining me peace & comfort through the process. I am forever grateful & thankful for the beautiful services you provided. Take Care! God Bless you & all of the Driscoll Family!
Thank you Patrick for helping my mother and our family with arrangements for my father's funeral services. All of the personalized details you coordinated for us including the picture video, the beautiful funeral program, to the funeral procession drive by our family home and cemetery military honors of taps were a loving tribute to him and his life and meant so much to our family. During these difficult Covid times, we were grateful to have celebrated his life with our family and friends while practicing safe social distance. We thank you and your top notch staff for taking care of all the details and your integrity and sincerity in all that you did for our family.
Johns service,beautiful,peaceful,compassionate,in regards to loving family and friends The Driscoll Funeral Home were comforting,caring,respectful,proffessional,to the needs of the loving Rizkallah family ,as they were to me and my loving deceased brother Raymond a thank you to DRISCOLLS Funeral Home . you are highly recomended
I cannot begin to thank Pat Driscoll for his help and support with the arrangements for my son. His coordination and recommendations resulted in an expeditious and moving memorial service during the most difficult times of our lives.
My Mom died a short while ago and I want to thank everyone at Driscoll's for all of the comfort that you gave to my cousins, The Carbones. They performed the ceremony for us at the time and we hope to hold a celebration of life soon. Thank you for very much.
To plan a funeral for someone you love might possibly be the most draining thing after losing them. I lost my little sister and despite this being such a difficult time. With Patrick’s help, he was able to assist in every single part of the process so that at no moment I felt alone or overwhelmed. He was patient and kind as were everyone that I encountered who worked with him. The home was extremely well taken care of, a gorgeous and peaceful place to say a goodbye. I can not recommend Patrick or his home enough. Thank you for everything Patrick.
Thank you so much for taking our photos from different members of the family and putting together a wonderful visual with music. It is excellent.
We did pre-planning for my mother-in-law 2 years ago with Chris Dube. Chris could not have been more helpful reviewing all the options with us for the budget and getting everything set up. Having everything already in place was a godsend when she passed recently. When she passed we met with Pat Driscoll who helped us with the last minute details (flowers, obituary, etc.) and making sure everything would run smoothly the day of her services. Everything was exactly as intended and her services were quite beautiful. We cannot say enough about how caring and attentive everyone was. Thank you so much to Pat, Chris and the entire Driscoll's staff for everything. Tony and Melissa Valenti
Hi Pat, I wanted to thank you, Chris and the whole team at Driscoll's for making this process a little bit easier for us and supporting us along the way. Especially during these strange times with COVID, we received many positive comments that the services were wonderful and that you guys did a great job keeping social distancing in mind. I know so many families haven’t had the opportunity to have services for their loved ones recently and I will forever be thankful that we were able to have something for my Dad, and for how beautiful everything turned out.
Blessings and thank you for taking such good care for Chanchalba Patel, her family, and friends in her last physical journey.
