In the funeral home business, it is a rare, but an invaluable characteristic. Ours is Staten Island’s only full service funeral home. There is nothing related to a funeral home that we can’t handle for you. Nothing.
Our expertly-trained staff is here to respond to your every need at a most sensitive time. You can leave all planning to us. Why?
One reason is that we never depend on outside suppliers. Everything from a fleet of impeccably maintained limousines to an on-premises floral and religious articles shop to monuments and memorials are all owned and operated by us.
Perhaps most important is the Scalia commitment to providing only the finest service with compassion and precise attention to detail. Our family treats yours with the utmost respect and courtesy.
Because in your time of need, we want to take care of everything. And we do mean everything.
Funerals today are vastly different then they were years ago. One constant that has stood the test of time is, families and friends still need to gather in order to grieve, as well as to pay honor and tribute to the life lived. We realize that our critical role is to create an environment where each family can personalize their service in a way that aids them in the grieving process. Displaying personal effects of the deceased is encouraged for such personalization. In the past, some of the services included: sports equipment for a father who was an avid sports fan, portraits for a mother who was an artist and a genuine Harley Davidson motorcycle was wheeled in to one of our chapels by a family grieving over an uncle who enjoyed tooling around. There is truly no limit because we understand that how you remember your loved one can help bring closure and make it easier to say goodbye.
Here are just some other ideas for a personalized service:
• Photo Collage
• Personal Musical Selections
• Personal Displays
• Floral Tributes
• DVD Memorial Tributes
• Military Tributes
• Dove or Balloon Releasing
• On site Prayer Cards, Acknowledgement Cards and Memorial Program Printing
Recently, we have installed new room signs at all of our chapels. The new signs will now display pictures of your loved one as well as the important information about the services. These new additions are a symbol of our dedication to the importance and individualism of each and every life that is lived. If you have any further questions or ideas and need assistance, please feel free to contact your funeral director at any time.
