Anthony - I have no words to say what a beautiful job you and your staff did for our very large family and our dear Johnny.

People tell me that their long wait in line was "Pleasurable" because of the beauty that surrounded them during visiting hours, from caring staff, to amazing placement of flowers, to a superb tribute video and seamless management of all the friends in attendance.

You made a very difficult time peaceful and loving. - THANK YOU

Anthony - How do I thank you for such a beautiful tribute to my father. Everything you did and advised us on was done professionally. Your staff's attention to detail and sincerity went above and beyond.

I truly didn't think that we could have an open casket - that it was even possible - following dad's illness - It gave us great peace to see him as he always was.

With sincere gratitude.

I just wanted to say thank you for all you and your staff have done for us. Diane did a wonderful job as well as all the assistants in making it as nice an experience as it could be. The DVD is nice touch as well as everything else, that was a nice surprise.

Brianna Bennett exceeded my expectations.
She was so good and so kind. She went above
what she needed to do. My Mom was touched
by her. She put flowers on my fathers grave and
I didn't even tell her that he was there right next
to us. That was very touching. She was the one
who arranged everything. Everyone else was
so nice too. A gentleman, I think his name was
John, went to pick up the program at Staples
because we ran out of time. We really
appreciated that gesture"

Lawlor Family

We would like to thank you for everything you have done for us. You went above and beyond our expectations. We will be forever grateful for your kindness

I can’t say enough about the professionalism that each person we dealt with at O’Donnell‘s funeral home showed to my family and I as we not pre-planned our parents funeral arrangements. Last week we carried out those funeral plans for our beloved Dad.

First, Chad was terrific in helping us plan the funerals. He was very professional and patient as we worked through the many different plans. Then when my Dad died, Sonya took over and implemented our plans, she was the beacon of light during our dark days. She was always there each step of the way quietly guiding us and ensuring that everything went off perfectly.

There was never a question that our family would not use O’Donnell funeral home…. But what a pleasure to deal with these professionals each and every person we dealt with, was compassionate and helpful.

Thank you all.

Belleau Family

I especially wanted to point out, Brianna Bennett, on your staff.

She was involved with both of the funerals for our parents. She was compassionate, kind, and a consummate professional. She had e-mails coming from many of us and took the time to answer and get back to each of us quickly. We felt so comfortable with her direction and her care and concern for both of our parents. Anthony, you need to give her a huge raise:).

As you well know, these are sad and emotional times for the family but she handled things with grace and we were so happy to have her by our side guiding us.

Talbot Family

Chad - we want to thank you for all of your help with our pre-planning...

I want to thank you and your people, Sonya, Brianna, Chad and Diane.

We were as a family, a ship without a compass and not knowing what to do to honor our youngest brother in a way he would have been happy with.

They listened and gave us appropriate options which we felt very happy and comfortable with.

Sonya was always in contact with our family, she was wonderful.

Brianna was so understanding and respectful at the gravesite - it was a very hot and humid day and she didn't falter.

Thank you all again for making an extremely difficult time so much easier.

Dear Anthony----just a brief note to thank you for all your kindnesses relating to my mother's wake/funeral. You have such a wonderful combination of sympathy, reassurance and kindness.

Volpe Family

God Bless All of You!
First to our unflappable Brianna - her ever elegantly beautiful, smiling, service to me. Perfect! And God bless dear Diane, ever professional and ever so affable over the phone. Connection felt without even meeting in person. Yes, she’s that good over the phone! Not to mention our leader, Anthony, the much admired inheritor of a legacy I never had so much fortune as to have.

All I can say, after O’Donnell’s help today, this Friday (5/26/23) is that it was all so wonderful, i.e., my dear mother’s funeral could not have possibly been better!

I am sooo deeply gratified to all of you at Tommy O’Donnell’s!!!

After taking care of so many people for so many years, I cannot thank you Brianna, Anthony & Matt, enough for taking care of me today when I needed it most.

My brother passed away a few weeks ago , although it was expected, it was sooner than we thought so my nephew and I were in shock . The staff were absolutely amazing and so helpful from the very beginning and are still helping out . They help you with estate planning , grief counseling and several other things that you don’t think about . They are truly wonderful and caring people and are amazing at what they do, especially when families are in such despair and not thinking clearly . I will forever be grateful for them .

DiTamasso Family

I attended the wake for Gulio DiNardo this past Wednesday 12/28.

I’m a senior disabled individual who uses a walker. When I pulled up and parked right next to the stairs at your Danvers location a very nice gentleman came out to tell me there was a ramp right around the back of the building. He walked me around the building, opened the door and escorted me inside and even took my keys and moved my vehicle right outside the door where the ramp is. While walking I had shared a terrible experience I had that morning at another funeral where they treated me horribly. They treated me badly and long story short. They locked me vehicle in so tight I couldn’t get my walker thru all the vehicles and never made it inside for the funeral service.

By the way, the gentleman even escorted me back to my vehicle when I was leaving your establishment. Mr. Billings was the perfect example of professionalism. I told him the individuals at the funeral I attended in the morning could learn a lot from your staff.

I just was to express my gratitude to you and your staff. The way people submit complain about everything these days I thought I should go the opposite way.

Respectfully, with thanks-

Guest of the DiNardo Family

I wanted to thank you and your team for the outstanding Veterans Day breakfast at the Danversport and the trip to the JFK museum. It is good to know that there are people who appreciate what these men and women have done, and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, so that we can enjoy life in this great country.

I personally enjoyed both days, because I got to talk to Veterans of various walks of life and from different war periods and share some stories of military life.

Thank you again so very much!

Our visit with Diane was pleasant and comforting. Having all of the arrangements in advance made things easier as well. My family felt at ease knowing that all the details were taken care of. It truly made a big difference during this difficult time.

All the staff were compassionate during the services and at the grave site. We could see the special care was given at all times. The staff were there for us every step of the way. And as we were leaving, they lined up to wave farewell. What class!

Thank you

From our family to you, Thank you so much for every kind effort you dedicated to arranging our mother's services. The services were even more beautiful then we could have imagined. Multiple people told us they were the most beautiful services they have ever attended. They were exactly what our mother would have wanted - and this gave us so much comfort and peace as we honored and celebrated her life.

Anthony, you guided us from day 1 with so much compassion. You gave us energy and space to think about each decision, but also organized things so quickly and gracefully. You shared your own experiences, helping us feel less alone in navigating our grief. You listened carefully to the stories about our mom and used these details to beautifully write her life story and add detail to the services.

You are incredible and we are so grateful we choose O'Donnell's to honor our mother's life and legacy.

From our hearts to yours, THANK YOU!

So pleasant to have received a thoughtful message from folks at O'Donnell Funeral Service in Danvers on my mom's birthday the year after she passed. Always a difficult process, saying goodbye to one's mom under any conditions, but made so much more intense by COVID restrictions.

I was so thankful for the gracious care given by Diane and Elizabeth.

I always dealt with Tom O’Donnell , after his passing Anthony was just as caring and compassionate as his dad . My parents knew them all well . My mom passed away and Anthony took us under his wing and guided us with everything needed for a safe funeral. It was such a comfort knowing that he would be there at all times in the beginning, during and after the funeral.

Follmer Family

I couldn't have asked for a more compassionate, patient and understanding experience. I reached out one day and literally, the very next day my dear sweet husband passed. O'Donnell's entire staff were right there to explain procedures, laws and regulations in the kindest and most basic language, always taking into consideration my frail mindset. Brianna (phenomenal) and the rest of the staff are a wonderful compliment to each other who communicate so effectively to ensure there is no further distress or trauma to me and my family members.

My family and I will be back to finalize my burial wishes with O'Donnell Cremations, Funerals, Celebrations.

Cooke Family
December 1, 2021

I was absolutely blown away by the treatment that O'Donnell's put out for the veterans today with the trip to the American Heritage Museum. It was a day that we will be talking about for a long time.

Your generosity in supplying 2 buses, paying for the admission to the museum, supplying the coffee and donuts, plus arranging for a fabulous box lunch shows that O'Donnell goes above and beyond the rest of the pack. We were talking about the experience among ourselves and agreed that the trip was definitely worth the time and effort that you put into it.

Between the Veterans Appreciation Breakfast and this Museum trip, it is clear that the O'Donnell Funeral Home cares for the veteran. Again, thank you for your generous actions on our behalf.

Moody Family
November 18, 2021

Just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for everything you did for us during my mom's passing. You made us feel at ease every step of the way. You made a sad, difficult time a bit easier. Some people just have that way about them and you are certainly one of them. It takes a special person to do what you do especially day in and day out. I don't know how you do it.

Your dad was a wonderful man and good to my family and you have followed in his footsteps.

So Anthony, I will simply leave you with this: THANK YOU! for making my mom's passing into a beautiful tribute of her life.

Every detail was perfect! Much love to you!

Giardi Family

At one of the most difficult times in my life I found the people, services and resources at O’Donnell’s to be professional with out being aloof, caring without being patronizing and empathetic without being overwhelming.

10 STARS!!!!!I loved everything about O'Donnell's starting with my first call to every last detail honoring my father. Anthony O'Donnell has the right approach and positivity he upholds in his family business. He and his staff are remarkable at what they do, always with high integrity and professionalism, and always with lots of heart. Their service goes beyond a business, its with such heart and compassion to the deceased and families involved. I want to mention as well, they lend support and guidance all the way through and even weeks beyond. There are few businesses that really know what it means to service others and service the community. While its been a suffering loss for our family, we are beyond grateful for their dedication to helping us navigate life a little easier during this time.

Fiske Family

We felt blessed to have you as our funeral director. From the first time I spoke with you, it was clear to me why my friend recommended you. Your knowledge and expertise helped make the process fell not so overwhelming. We appreciate the kindness of all of the staff during the calling hours and funeral for my fathers. My dad was very special and I am thankful that everything went smoothly.

John was helpful in picking up the clothing from the house, Connor was open to my constructive critiques and Georgia was very helpful on organizing the photo slide show and beautiful candle.

Anthony, you are so well suited for helping people in their time of loss. You are very organized and on top of every detail in a dignified manner. You truly honored my dad and have been there for me with my many texts, phone calls, questions and probing for advice.

I will never forget what you all have done for us and Joseph.

Heartfelt Thanks

Recently, I lost my very best friend, my mom.
She was only 66. O’Donnell staff were amazing from the time they came to my moms house right up until today. They reassured me they would get my mom out safely seeing she lived on a second floor Victorian condo. This was extremely important to me and I was nervous. The staff were so kind and they listened to all my feelings.
Although, this time has been the worst in my life, Diane was wonderful with helping my sisters and I set up all the arrangements. She helped me find the perfect picture of my mom for her obituary.
My niece wanted my mom to forever hold a charm she forgot it the night of the wake. We thought it was too late! We asked Diane and she reassured us she would get the charm in my moms hand after the funeral. She came up to my sister at the cemetery and held it up and said she would get it into my moms hands.
We didn’t have to ask for anything more than once. All of the staff truly were wonderful! I’ve never heard of a funeral home sending a card and text messages to ask how you are and see if you need anything. O’Donnell staff are genuinely caring people and I’m forever grateful for their excellent service!

John was amazing yesterday. He was a good sport when I asked if he would pose for a picture in front of the SUV holding the urn. He seemed a bit surprised initially (I’m guessing it’s not a frequent request!) but was happy to comply when I told him the family was getting a kick out of Dad returning home via a personal driver in a black stretch SUV! This was a guy that got around in old pick-up trucks and logging equipment, so to have such a fancy ride home is almost poetic!!!!

I have been so pleased with everyone on your team. You have a very compassionate and caring group of people and I’m grateful to all of you for making a difficult time the best it can be under the circumstances.

I would like to express my complete satisfaction with all the members of O’Donnell Funeral Home who helped me with the arrangements for my husband. Everyone I dealt with was professional, understanding and compassionate.

I could not have asked for a more professional team to help me with from the first to the very last contact. Every worry or concern was immediately addressed.

I sincerely appreciate and recommend O’Donnell Funeral Home,

April 1, 2020 our precious son passed away. Mary and I were devastated. We will never recover from this tragedy. If it wasn't for our friends and the amazing support we got from Anthony and his team at O'Donnell funeral home, we would not have been able to manage the first few days. Anthony's compassion, support and follow-thru was amazing. Anthony helped us through this tragic experience. If you are in need of compassion, support, follow-thru and professionalism, we highly recommend Anthony and the O'Donnell Funeral Home.

I want to personally thank you for all you did to make my mother-in-laws funeral so beautiful. The lovely leaflet was a wonderful and beautiful unexpected surprise. Dick would be very happy that his mom had such a beautiful Mass and your dad would be so proud of how you are carrying on. Everything about the funeral was lovely but a lasting image for me will be of all the O'Donnell Guys lined up at the graveside service waving good bye as I was leaving.
