Worst experience ever thanks to the current Funeral Director (FD). The owner had overseen the funeral of both my brother and father, and were wonderful experiences, under the circumstances. My mother's burial was handled by the FD, and I am writing this review so anyone entering into approx. a $20,000.00 arrangement has a heads up to be on your toes.
ISSUE NO. 1: Started by being told by the owner they would remove all jewelry placed on my Mother prior to burial, therefore I did not worry about jewelry placed on my Mother for the viewing. Prior to leaving the funeral parlor FD approached me and stated they would just leave her ring on and any jewerly, not thinking (I was rather upset) I agreed. 20 minutes after leaving the grave site I asked him about specific items and he stated it was too late late to retrieve the specific items I requested.
ISSUE NO. 2: I had not signed off on my Mother's headstone engraving. When this was brought to my attention I told FD exactly how to engrave the stone, and more specifically not to engrave the stone as he desired to engrave it (using initials). Regardless FD did exactly what I told him absolutely not to do. Now every time I go to my Mother's grave site I will be reminded of the FD's work. I would not recommend his work to anyone. This chapter is the last in a person's life, and for so many important details to be so grossly mishandled cuts to the bone and adds to the pain and sorrow of the loss of my mother, I would not wish this on the anyone.

I am from Florida and my mother passed away in Schenectady, New York. Being from out of state, I was very concerned about who would take care of my mother's remains. I had very little time because I didn't want her in the morgue. I searched and visited many funeral homes in the area and couldn't find what I was looking for, a God based place. I felt that all that I visited were just a business and wasn't sure that my mother would be treated with the respect that she deserved. Finally, God sent me to De Legge Funeral Home. When I rang the door bell a nun answered the door, which I was later told was not the norm. With a warm touch, she held my hand and asked me to come in. I felt that my prayers were answered. Then I met with Mark Laszczynski, who has such a gentle way and understanding of the grief process for the loved ones left behind. He assisted me with the financial aspects and made it very easy. After talking to him about how I would like things done, he immediately left to pick up my mother so that she wasn't left any longer at the hospital. They placed her under a large cross, at the feet of Jesus, with her head resting on a silk pillow. There was to be no viewing and her remains were to be cremated. This is just the way that they treat loved ones. I am so happy and relieved that I found them. They are very respectful and professional. I felt at peace and I'm sure that my mother did too.

I drove everyone in the office crazy by calling, asking questions, crying b/c of family issues & EVERYONE tolerated more than they should have. A very special thank you to Phil.
