Pre-Planning Seminar


We had the pleasure of hosting a pre-planning seminar at Pleasant View Senior Center! We had a packed room and a great bunch of attendees. They were engaged as our pre-planning director, Gary Szewczyk, shared stories from his life that led him to understand the importance of pre-planning funeral services. Loren Forastiere had the opportunity to introduce the seminar and speak to those in attendance afterwards. The audience had great questions and we couldn't have asked for a better seminar!!

Thrive After 55 Event


Gary Szewczyk and Rebekah Curtis had a great time hosting the table at this year's Thrive After 55 event held at Western New England University! Not only were we able to give people valuable information on our pre-planning services, but we were also able to raffle off a board of scratch tickets as well! The Thrive After 55 not only allowed local businesses to connect with the community, but hosted lunch, gave valuable tips & advice, and raffled off some amazing door prizes! 

East Longmeadow 4th of July Parade


What a faithful staff! During East Longmeadow's 4th of July Parade, Ambassadors Alicia Balboni and Hunter Acconcio, and Funeral Director, Brian Kastner, spent some time handing out water to those watching the parade! We had the funeral home open so that people could use the bathroom and allowed those who wanted a good view to park in our parking lot. So thankful for these volunteers that allowed this to happen!!
