“Re: Jose Mota - What can I say, Kristen and her staff were tremendous. My brother in law passed away on New Years Day, an obvious holiday for most of us. I was helping my sister with funeral arrangements and called thinking I would leave a voicemail and get a call back. To my surprise a voice answered on the other end of the line and they took the time to answer all of my questions. In this time of great sorrow for our family, your professionalism and most notably your compassion was felt throughout the entire process. Thank you so much to you and all of your staff, Isabel Pereira”

“Kristen: Under the most difficult of situations it was a pleasure working with your staff and you. The Center for Hope recommended you and that was certainly a tremendous referral. From the first phone call with Dulcie it was a warm and kind interaction. Each conversation was patient and not rushed. Our in-person meeting with you was amazing. My five grown daughters who were making the arrangements for their father were comfortable within about five minutes. The entire process was tender and feeling. It made the entire experience much easier to go through in a time of such extreme sadness. You delivered more than was expected. Our family highly recommends Gorny and Gorny for funeral arrangements. I do not believe any family could have experienced such a caring and heartfelt funeral director and staff.”

“Today I had to do one of the most difficult tasks..burying my brother. His long illness still didn’t prepare us for the loss. With great fortune, we had called Gorny and Gorny to assist in preparing for the inevitable. I first spoke to Kristin, then Lucy, and Jose. The professional and compassionate way they all answered my questions, gave me information, and handled my grief was beyond business, it was personal. Every aspect of the journey was facilitated by these capable and personable individuals. Kristin’s personal attention to every detail made us feel like family. I am so grateful to have my brother cared for by such wonderful people. They have my deepest gratitude and sincere appreciation for all they have done.”

“Good afternoon Kristen; I trust that you and Jose are doing well. I wanted to say a big fat 'Thank you' for the kindness that you have shown to me and my siblings during this most challenging time. Your sweet spirit and gentle demeanor are truly an asset that will propel you throughout your life. It was a pleasure to once again reconnect. I felt a thrill of excitement when I realized just who this person was that I had spoken to on the phone the day prior. Sometimes in life, we meet people that we simply feel destined to know... May you have a peaceful day and experience all of the joy your heart desires and deserves. Please give Jose my regards and thank him for the most wonderful experience of riding in the hearse with my Dad and he. You both will never know just how much that meant to me, the eldest son. Sincerely, John Anthony~”

“It is difficult to find the words to express the extent of my gratitude to Gorny and Gorny Funeral Home for their services to our aunt. Kristen is such a compassionate and understanding person. She was steps ahead of me through the planning process and she anticipated and fulfilled every task. Kristen treated our aunt with kindness and dignity . Calling upon Kristen was like a visit with family. The services brought us together to share memories, laughter and tears. Kristen actually spoke to the individual guests, making them feel welcome and comfortable. The funeral actually became a celebration of our aunt's life and the day left us all with a deep feeling of peace and contentment. For this we are eternally grateful.”
