Above and beyond. It’s so difficult to articulate the amount of gratitude i feel right now. These circumstances are never ideal however the professionalism and level of care taken by Kenny and his wife are beyond any expectations we could have imagined. From the beautiful ambiance, clean environment and flawless detail, to the warmth and sincerity given to us made us truly feel like family. Kenny clearly cares about making this painful situation as smooth as it can be and truly went above and beyond to make us comfortable. Thank you truly.

I cannot begin to describe how caring, supportive and informative Kenny and Melissa were during the most difficult time in our lives. My Dad loved Ken Maher and St. James Funeral Home. He would not have wanted any other family to take care of him after he passed away. My father would have been so amazingly proud of Kenny and Melissa (along with the entire Maher family) for continuing the Maher family traditions. They are SO knowledgeable about what my family needed outside of the ceremonial part of the funeral. They helped with all of my dad’s Veteran benefits and how we needed to proceed with the church details. Their pricing was INSANELY reasonable and the entire event was respectful of my Dad’s wishes. It truly felt as though we were all in our own living room reminiscing with Dad’s friends about his life. Kenny, Melissa and family….THANK YOU.
