When my sister passed away 5 weeks after my mom 1 hour away in a city unfamiliar to me – I made sure that she was not taken to any local funeral home as was suggested to me – my answer was no way or how – I have a funeral home that will come and get my sister – you see after having experienced how this funeral home took care of my mother there was no other funeral home that I was going to allow to take care of my sister. If you haven’t picked up on this yet all my references above are to a “funeral home” – therein lies the difference between those funeral homes you are most familiar with and the family I came to know through a dying mom’s wish. This family who held our hands, always had a comforting word, prayed with us, got to know my mom and sister as if they were their mother and sister are Mike and Kim Palmerie who just happen to own the Prospect Memorial Funeral Home in Prospect, CT. There is no detail that is not addressed, there is no request that is not honored, they go above and beyond to ensure that everything that is important to you and your family is met. There is no high pressure sale of coffins, vaults, pictures and all the necessary elements of making funeral arrangements but rather their empathy, sympathy and love for you and your family at a time when you need it most. We will all be faced with this decision at some point in our lives and when you are – if you want a relationship through the hardest time in your life vs a business transaction – then there is no other family I recommend you go to for the care your loved one deserves. Kim and Mike – thanks for helping me and my family get through these very difficult times. My family considers both of you our family – it’s just unfortunate the circumstances by which we became family. Sue, Gavin, Christian and I love you both.
Many thanks to Sean and his team for the outstanding arrangements provided in memory of our mother, Roberta Atwood. Sean saw to our every request with pleasure. He was extremely easy to talk to and considerate of our grief. I would recommend him to anyone. My mother looked so beautiful as well which was a tremendous comfort after remembering her suffering. We are very grateful. Heartfelt thanks from our family.
Kim & Mike had the difficult job of orchestrating a 3 person wake for our family. They did an amazing job as validated by the friends & family members who attended and praised a job well done. We had the digital photo screen, a tender and loving memorial service - and - my sister- in- laws' favorite Elvis singing How Great Thou Art. She would have been pleased. Linda and Fred were remembered w/ photos and stories of good times and family memories. Kim and Mike handled it all- and very well. It was evident- it is not just a business for them- but a sincerely caring and compassionate outpouring of genuine kindness and honesty. We appreciated all they did to go out of their way for all our family members. Gayle Corcoran
This funeral home is much more than just that. It is literally a safe haven for you to go during the hardest time of your life. We worked with prospect funeral home for my father in laws passing. after dealing with so much heartache and sorrow finding Kimberly and Shawn was a blessing in itself during a dark storm! Not only was the staff incredible at every detail they did, they were genuine! They did not push anything on us. They didn't try and oversell us on anything and they were completely open and honest in every aspect of the process. The business professionalism doesn't even compare to the hospitality and the pure love this funeral home has. You feel almost as though you become family and you're just safe when your dealing with everything this has to entail here! There is also the utmost compassion from the staff you could ever wish for when grieving. Not only did they help keep myself strong during our service but they kept my children strong too with kind words and even just the simplest gentle hug and smile. I would trust the staff and this funeral home to do ANY services I may need ever in the future again.
Kim Palmieri and her team at Prospect Memorial Funeral Home did a wonderful job for my uncle Tommy's funeral yesterday. They were very accommodating to my family, provided the right amount of a caring attitude, made a connection with the families, celebrated his life, and gave us peace of mind that he was laid to rest with a beautiful salute from the US Marines. We highly recommended their business.
They are polite, professional, well-versed, experienced and organized. Assisted with everything from beginning to end holding our hand the entire way. Affordable and sent my father off with a 21-gun salute. He would have been proud of this service thank you so much.
Kim and the staff of Prospect Memorial went above and beyond for our family. Our brother’s services were professional compassionate and all we could have hoped for, at a trying and difficult time. We were comforted at all they provided. Kim’s personal care made all the difference for us. We came away from the services with gratitude at the beautiful way everything was handled. Thank you!!
I would like to thank Prospect Memorial Funeral Home for taking great care of my husband David Young. Their attention to detail and punctuality was very much appreciated. Our whole family was blessed to have your help though this difficult time. Thank you Prospect Memorial Funeral Home. Edith Young and family
Prospect Memorial provided compassionate, responsive and highly professional care for our family when my father passed. Their attention to details and willingness to responsibly address our requests was greatly appreciated. Kim and the funeral home staff helped us honor my father's final wishes with style and grace. That is a priceless value proposition for a responsible business owner.
We had used Prospect Memorial when my Dad died. The staff were very comforting and guided us though everything. I would highly recommend them.
