Stephanie, My whole family thanks you for the services for my Dad. Your compassion from my first telephone call was amazing. You and everyone at your firm was amazing on how you handled every little detail. I now know why you and your family have been in business for 125 plus years. Your funeral home was charming, we felt like we were at our own house, rather than some big building, where you think it’s a funeral factory. As you know I had called several funeral homes to inquire about prices, you were both fair and honest on how much everything was going to cost. I could not say enough about your firm. When people ask me, how everything went, I would tell them I would not recommend anyone other than the Dorsey-Carlone Funeral Home. In the future we would never think of calling anyone but you and your family. Thanks again for everything you and your family did for my family in our time of need and making us feel at peace as much as you did.

We want to thank you for helping us through the very emotional time in preparing the final arrangements for our Mom's wake, church services and burial. You took such care in making sure everything was perfect. We were so comforted that Mom looked so beautiful and at peace. You have a great responsibility to bring peach and comfort to grieving families, but you also help them through the decisions with such compassion and grace.

Dear Stephanie - Thank you for your help during this difficult time, the passing of our Dear Sister. I am grateful that my family chose your funeral home for my grandmother 21 years ago. It made it easy to choose you for my mom and sister. I will always remember your kindness.

I highly recommend Dorsey Carlone. The staff (Stephanie) was courteous, responsive, competent, and knowledgeable, plus the fees charged for these services were very reasonable in comparison to other funeral homes in the area. In anticipation that our Mom of 94 years would be passing on shortly at NYP Hudson Valley Hospital, we called Stephanie to get a quote and information about the whole gruesome process of making the final arrangements. Stephanie was not only respectful and reliable, she was highly transparent about cost and the cremation process, answered all of our questions directly, and always made herself available to us, whether by phone or in person. I cannot recommend Dorsey Carlone strong enough. Stephanie is the real deal and exactly the person you need during a very trying time of life, both you and your family.

Thank you so much for your support these past few months. We are so grateful for everything you have done to help us with remembering mom and dad.


There is no way that we can possibly thank you for going the extra mile for my brother's funeral. You made it so easy for us. Your mom and dad have to be very proud of you. Your family has to share you so often with others that they have to be a wonderful family. So many of us were talking about you in a very nice way. You're a lovely young woman, Stephanie. We are glad to have gotten to know you a little more. Thank you, again and again. May God bless you and your loved ones.
