"Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for the love and special care you provided to our Mom/Mima. This whole process was overwhelming, but you helped us through a very difficult time.  Thank you again for everything."

Family of A.G.


"At one of the most difficult times of a families life, I truly believe now that a funeral home can make it easier on you. This staff was so sensitive and warm and went above and beyond to comfort all of us and those who were kind enough to take time out and visit us. I would like to personally thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts for everything, but especially for not treating us like just another family.

From beginning to end, and even after for watching out for my uncle until someone picked him up at the bench, your team is amazing. Thank you for helping make one of the most difficult times for my family a little easier."

"My family uses this funeral home for most of our funerals. Each one they go above and beyond, showing kindness and caring. The staff makes the effort to put families at ease and meet all the needs of not only the family but the loved one as well."

"I would like to thank you and your staff for the outstanding service you provided with regard to the funeral arrangements for my mother.  Arthur and Craig were extremely compassionate and accommodating.  Your new facility is beautiful and provided a warm, serene setting for the memorial service.  When I first met with Craig several weeks before my mom’s passing to make pre-arrangements, he had already looked up the details of my dad’s funeral which Clayton had handled some thirty two years ago and contacted the cemetery to check their guidelines for burial.

You have a first-class operation and I thank you all for making an expectedly difficult time somewhat easier to handle."

Sincerely, the Family of ES

"I want to take a few moments to thank you and Clayton & McGirr Funeral Home for your amazing kindness and thoughtfulness during the time of laying my mom to her final rest.  I received the DVD yesterday and have already watched it three times, and was filled with the Lord’s presence and moved to tears each time.  Please thank Lacy for the beautiful job she did. "

"On behalf of my entire family, I would like to thank you and your entire staff for all you did for us as we mourned the loss of my husband.  You were there for us every step of the way and fulfilled our every need, comforting us and supporting us like you would your own family.  The slide show of pictures truly was magnificent and it enabled us to celebrate Ken’s life rather than remember his death.  It not only was a tremendous comfort to us, but it was a great way for mourners to reminisce and get to know him.  Words cannot express how grateful we are for your coordination of the military flag folding ceremony which provided me husband with the pride, dignity and honor befitting an elite member of the 82nd Airborne Division of the United States Army."

Warmest Regards, The J Family

 

"We were out doing errands this morning and saw all the action at your work. Mom told me of the Marine from Colts Neck killed, so we had to stop and pay our respects, parking at the Dunkin Donuts. The outside was so respectfully decorated and looked wonderful. I'm sure was a difficult to pull off, especially with full military honors, but watching you and the rest of the staff, seemed flawless. As a retired Army officer, I have unfortunately seen my share of military funerals. I can tell you yours was executed with the highest professional precision. Many thanks to you and your colleagues for assisting one of our military's finest to his final resting place today."

 

"It has been very hard for me to deal with the loss of my uncle, known for being a happy, friendly, hard-working man and loving father, husband and uncle.  From the moment you met him, till his last day, nothing but love.  I must say that the staff of Clayton & McGirr Funeral Home from before his passing they were guiding me all the way with love, patience, guidance and comfort. As many questions as I had, over and over again, they took care of everything.  Everything was perfectly beautiful and everything happens at its right moment.  Everyone was at peace and happy.  So grateful for their service, and their beautiful loving dog was a great comfort for me and my family.  Thank you Kaitlyn, Lisa, Arthur, Bob and the whole staff.  From the moment I was greeted by one of the directors, until the moment we departed, everything was amazing. I highly recommend Clayton & McGirr Funeral Home to be your first choice in a heartbeat.  Every single time you speak to them, they show they care and have excellent communication and comfort in your time of pain and sorrow.  You don't know how much I appreciate all of your help.  From now on, Clayton & McGirr will be my #1 top priority choice of funeral without a doubt.  Beautiful place, clean, elegant, caring staff.  I thank you all once again from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for me and my family so that my uncle could rest in peace.  Thank you!"

 

Craig, Kaitlyn, Lisa and Staff

"Words can’t express the gratitude for everything you did to receive our friend’s son’s body in Marine / Military fashion, have a beautiful private viewing, funeral service at CNHS and ceremony at the Veterans Cemtery.  Corporal Baldassare left us too young but as a hero.  Thank you for your compassion, patience and help during this difficult time and for allowing us to be a part of the team to make his services beautiful. "

 

Kaitlyn, John, Walter, Lisa and everyone at Clayton & McGirr

"I can’t thank you and your staff enough!  You guys made this memorable and easier on our hearts!  Hats off to such a fine group of people.  There are no words strong enough to express our sincere appreciation and gratefulness.  This video couldn’t be more perfect!  God bless all of you!"

 

"On behalf of our church I would like to thank you for the outstanding services you extended to the KM family earlier this week.

Your representatives were outstanding; Murry, Ken and all the others.  May God continue to bless you all."


"As you know, the process of losing a loved one is gruesome and mostly unbearable.  Mentally and emotionally, there are so many internal factors that occupy those grieving days.  It can be so overwhelming when external factors such as final expenses and procedures need to be executed.  But the sincerity and professionalism of your staff was far and beyond the line of service I expected.  My healing process is not complete, and it might never be, but you have given me the opportunity to initiate this process with a stress-free mindset.  Thank you for your generosity, compassion and friendship."

 Lisa

"I have absolutely no idea how we would have gotten from Point A to Point B without you standing beside us and guiding us through the most simple, to the most difficult tasks.  You made me feel that I had a friend holding my hand and ensuring that every detail had been addressed and then some. 

I know that your job is to be understanding, kind and helpful, but my experience was one that convinced me that you go above and beyond.  One thing you said to me still comes to mind and makes me smile.  I had called and said that I had to ask if something would be possible.  Your immediate response was “Whatever it is, I am going to say ‘yes’.”  You just kept lifting whatever weight you could off our shoulders.  I felt a special connection with you that was so helpful trying to navigate the details in an attempt to help my son and daughter-in-law in their darkest hours."

 

Dear Craig and Staff

"We cannot thank you enough for all your sympathy and support during our difficult loss of our beloved wife and mother.  You went above and beyond.  Our grief was easier to bear with your assistance.  You’re first class!"

The Family of BM

Dear Craig and the Clayton & McGirr Family –

"As I look back upon the most emotional and difficult time in my life, I feel a complete sense of gratitude to all of you.  The shock of my husband’s death and the logistics of his passing happening so far from home was overwhelming, but you and your staff made every step of the process as comfortable as possible.  From the bottom of my heart thank you for taking care of me and my children; giving us helpful suggestions and support every time we met or spoke on the phone.  Everyone made me feel my family was the only client you had at the time when I know that was not the case.  Thank you again for your continuous support of my family. "

The Family of SM

 

Dear Mr. McGirr

"Words cannot adequately express my gratitude for all the support that your home provided with the arrangements for my father’s funeral.  You and your staff ensured that Dad received the memorable memorial funeral he so deserved.  You were with us every step of the way.  Your staff went above and beyond the call of duty especially as I deal with my mother who was ill.  Your caring support, warmth and attention did not go unnoticed.  No matter who I spoke with, or dealt with via email, courtesy and professionalism were present in the communication.  You met all of my and my family’s needs and more and did so with sympathy."

The Family of RG

Dear Arthur,

"I wish to sincerely thank you for the most perfect arrangements you and your staff organized for my Mom.  Mom looked absolutely beautiful, the flowers were perfect, the minister was wonderful and the military service was impressive. 

Arthur you made a very difficult task much easier and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  You, Kaitlin and Lisa also looked after me and my family.  My deepest thanks to you all.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and a new year rich in blessings and good health."

Dear Bob, Craig and Lisa

"Thank you very much for your professional assistance during this difficult time.  Planning for the funeral was easier than expected with Craig’s assistance.  The day of the funeral ran very smoothly as guided by Bob.  We received some very nice comments by friends and relatives regarding the day of the funeral and the manner in which you conducted the funeral.  Also, we received several comments in regards to the beauty and cleanliness of your home.  Lisa, thank you for helping to organize the day and assistance behind the scenes.  Again, thank you for your kindness during this emotional time. "

T"hank you all for your kind, professional, considerate service after the sudden death of my beloved husband.  Knowing that all aspects of his final wishes would be carried out brought great relief to me in the days following his death.  Each associate I spoke with was able to provide whatever I needed and always with a soft word and smile.  I could not be happier or more grateful to all of you for each kindness that was offered during a very difficult time.  May God bless each of you."
