Our family is so thankful that we preplanned with Forastiere family members funerals. When our sister suddenly died we only had to turn to Jaclyn Curtis to manage the event. Forastiere has been patient, knowledgeable and generous with their time in this difficult Covid period. A loss in the family is such a shocking experience and Jaclyn and the Forastiere family are there to get us through this.

I first heard of Forastiere from a close friend who highly recommended them. I was not disappointed! My daughters and I were treated with the upmost respect and were given valuable information to help us plan a memorial service to honor my husband and their loving father. The staff is mindful and sensitive when interacting with family members and friends who are grieving for their loved one. I recommend them to anyone who asks! They truly made a difficult time in our lives a bit easier. Thank you all, especially Emily.

Forastiere Smith Funeral & Cremation was outstanding in helping my Family after the passing of my Mother. Brian and his team were thoughtful and respectful of our wishes. They made a very emotional situation so much more bearable. They are a caring and genuine group of people who go above and beyond to make sure every detail is covered. I want to personally thank them for all they did, from start to finish. The follow up calls and emails to check in on me and my family were unexpected yet very much appreciated. Thank You very much.

Forastiere funeral did a great job with our sons arrangement. Lauren made us feel like family. She listened to us, I couldn't believe at the service when no one could say anything due to everyone being choked up, she stepped right in and kept the service going. I will never forget how beautiful Gary's service was. Thank you so much Lauren and Staff.

Forastiere in East Longmeadow was amazing. My brother was tragically taken from us. They went above and beyond to make our family heard, comfortable and really provide a service that was fitting to my brother’s memory. Lorin and the staff really listened and were available to answer all of our questions. They made our very difficult time a bit easier. Thank you!

5 star service

When [...] died I wanted to honor how we had always done things. We had discussed having a simple process when either of us died, showing the love and respect we held for each other during our lives. Forastiere provided this for me. They treated me with respect, demonstrating a caring support for all my decisions.

Excellent staff and accommodations for family. Many options, packages and very open to alternative suggestions. JoAnn Skiba was our associate and she is just down to earth and very sincere. Thanks to all @ Colonial Forastiere Funeral Home in Agawam.
