Donohue Cecere Funeral Directors in Westbury NY


Dominic Carella and Tommy Donohue exceeded my expectations at a most difficult time for our family. We had moved from New York to Florida in August and my husband passed away in October. One phone call to your facility, immediately reduced my stress and anxiety. Every detail for my husband's funeral was taken care of perfectly. Your professionalism and compassion was truly amazing and most sincerely appreciated. I cannot thank you for utmost attention and concern. Most Sincerely, Paula Silvestri and family.

Good morning, Tommy. On behalf of our entire family, 1000 THANK YOUs for the outstanding service we received as we paid our respects and celebrated the life of our our Mom and Family Matriarch. You and the Donohue-Cecere Funeral Home Staff are simply Angels here on earth, making a very sad, difficult and emotional process, seemingly effortless. Transition to the various sites were seamless on our end. Your entire Team, from onsite staff to Directors and Attendants of various sorts - funeral parlor, office, parking lot. traffic, church, cemetery - were just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Every last one knew the right thing to say to ease concerns and all were handy with a box of issues at just the right moment.

We cannot say that we want to see you again anytime soon for this purpose, but we know who to call when the need arises. Thanks again & GOD bless.

Thank you John and your staff for making a difficult time easier. When I found out my brother passed from corona virus, I was at a lost how to handle it long distance, since traveling to NY was not safe. His kindness and caring made my situation easier. He took care of everything and kept me informed every step of the way. He even videotaped my brother’s service since my sister and I and his many friends couldn’t attend. You went above and beyond and I want you to know how grateful I am.

We want to thank Liz for her outstanding knowledge, patience and kindness in planning our father's funeral. She was respectful, professional and kind, and assisted us in having a beautiful service with military honors. She helped make a difficult task very easy. Also, thanks Liz for the delicious cookies and beautiful candles. The day went as our father would have wanted it to be.

To Tommy & All the Staff,

I found Donohue Cecere because of an internet search and chose your funeral home because of its location (near Holy Rood).

After finalizing the pre-plan I realized I could hold visitation anywhere in U.S. but chose Donohue Cecere when the time came.

The one main reason for this choice was the kindness, compassion and understanding which is so much needed during a difficult time. I hope all other funeral homes do the same, but I can say I was never disappointed and all expectation were above & beyond. I am so appreciative for your wonderful service.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
