Our experience was excellent. Matt was knowledgeable, professional, and comforting. He was very understanding of our wishes. It felt like we were with family. We felt loving support from everybody who assisted with mom's wake and funeral.

Matt especially, but also Vincent and Gino were kind and considerate starting with the day they came to pick up my Uncle, through the funeral, they did everything right.

Excellent-could not have asked for better services. Matt was wonderful. He was very compassionate and caring and even put up with my "odd" sense of humor.

Matt and the entire Buranich Home family (Sam III, Kris, Corinne, Jason and Vince) treated me like family. The compassion, dignity and professionalism with which my family and I were treated throughout our entire journey is something I will never forget. The genuine respect shown for my Dad, the personal concern for me and my family, the consistent attention to detail and the continual, easy contact regarding matters pre-, during and post- services are many ways in which the Buranich Home staff went above and beyond. One request I made of Matt was to witness my Dad's entombment at St. Mary's Mausoleum. Matt went above the call of duty to make this happen. My Dad was with me when I entered this world. I was with him when he left this world (from Upstate Community) and, thanks to Matt's efforts, I was with him again when his body was laid to rest next to my Mom. There is absolutely no price I can put on this experience and, honestly, no way I can fully express my gratitude to Matt and the Buranich Home family for the comfort this experience gave to me. My Mom died in 2002 and for a brief moment in December of 2017, I could physically see my parents together with me, in the same space, for the first time in 15 years. Thank you so much for making this happen for me. Peace and Blessings.

Matt was fantastic to work with! He was not pushy or suggestive in any way of services or details that my mother had not desired. Always a smile and a welcomed side conversation about everyday life was truly appreciated as well. Matt was patient and understanding of our family dynamics as well. All of my concerns were addressed and my questions answered. Every detail was taken care of without hesitation. Thank you to everyone.

Excellent personal care for all meetings with arrangements by Matt. This is my first meeting with Matt as we have known Sam, Ann and Sam III for years and cannot say enough about Matt's addition to the Buranich business. It is with sincere appreciation for all his contact and guidance through all my mom's services.

I cannot express enough how wonderful our overall experience was. Matthew, Gino and your entire staff handled everything very professionally and were so helpful in getting us through this process. Everyone did their best to make us feel at ease as much as possible. Matthew handled a very delicate family situation and his discretion was most appreciated. Corinne was great!

Sam, We wanted to extend our most sincere gratitude to you, for assisting us with the funeral arrangements for our loved one. As you know, this was an extremely difficult situation for our family, and you made us feel so at ease, and provided us with many options without making us feel pressured whatsoever. Your kindness and compassion is outstanding, and the services provided were so comforting and beautiful. There truly is a difference when choosing a funeral home. We truly appreciate all that you and your staff did for us during this very difficult time, and would highly recommend your services to others for their loved ones. Thank you again.

Great! I would recommend you to friends and that's why we went to Buranich-friends were happy and so am I! Thank you! We felt like you were family.

Being our first experience with funeral planning it was 100% excellent-from the planning stages to the actual funeral. Each and every person attending mom's funeral remarked what a wonderful way it was to celebrate her life. The day was perfect if one can say that. Everything from beginning to end went so smoothly. As a family, and especially myself and my siblings cannot say enough about Matt! He was one of the most caring, considerate, and nicest people we have ever met. You should be more than proud to have him as a part of the Buranich family. He made a very difficult time in our lives so much easier to handle. I spoke with him at the end of the day but cannot thank him enough for all he did for us.

Matt is great to work with. He took care of everything we needed and was in constant contact with us. He helped us with decisions when we weren't sure. Matt made sure we were prepared and knew what to expect. The room looked very nice and we never felt rushed to leave.

Your service was excellent, your people have been well trained to see that the family is properly taken care of. Matt, when we met at the funeral home, I just knew everything was taken care of. Christine and I want to thank you for a job well done.


April 17, 2017

Nothing about this process is easy, but it helped having staff who could anticipate everything I would need to know, before I even knew that I need to know. Wonderful job! Because of the time of year, one of my biggest worries was the burial process, and because my husband is being buried out of town, I had extra anxiety about needing to work with two different companies. Buranich took care of everything. Thank you.


April 11, 2017

Could not have asked for any better. Service-all questions were answered, and I felt very comfortable with your staff. Your firm took the extra step providing service to me and my family.

Wonderful and very accommodating. Matt & Jason were really understanding, very comforting and compassionate.

Very professional service-would recommend. Your company has it figured out and runs like a fine tuned machine-Thank you Matt for everything during our difficult time.

We were absolutely delighted with our dealings with Matt. He made a very difficult and emotional situation quite easy to deal with and made us all feel very comfortable.

Bonnie and Family

The staff was friendly, kind and compassionate in every interaction; always allowing us to make this a personalized celebration of John's life, and not just a "cookie-cutter" funeral. My daughter-in-law said to me, "I see why you chose this funeral home."

We were comforted in knowing that the services were handled well and that there was little for us to arrange, which relieved a great deal of stress for us.

Our sincerest thanks to Vincent and all the staff there that helped make my Grandpa's calling hours and funeral happen this past weekend. Everything was so nice and couldn't have gone better. Vincent went above and beyond for anything that we asked and it was definitely appreciated by all!

Stephanie & Family

Our experience was excellent. Sam’s attention to every detail from the calling hours to the memorial service and burial was appreciated. We had nothing to worry about ~ everything was taken care of for us. The care, consideration and genuine compassion meant a lot to our family. It helped make one of the toughest times in our lives a little easier.

Kara and Family

Dear Buranich Staff, I want to take this time to thank Sam and all your staff. From the moment we arrived at your funeral home to make all the arrangements, Sam (may the Lord bless you) showed his love and compassion for our family’s loss. He took his time as we made our decisions on all the details on Monday, June 23rd. Then on Wednesday, June 25th, the staff was amazing, they took care of every detail and looked after the needs of the family as well. Thank you all so much.

Linda and Family

Dear Buranich Staff, I do not want to single out anyone because I know you all played a part in the planning and carrying out the funeral for Linda. Someone at the funeral home (a relative) mentioned that he was speaking to another funeral director and your name came up. The man said a lot of funeral homes do it for the money, but Sam and his staff do it as a ministry. I thought how appropriate. You touch people at their most vulnerable time and are sensitive to all that is encompassed in their raw grief. Blessings to you.

Mary, Dan, and all the family

Thank you for treating my mom, my sister and me with such care and concern. I can’t imagine any other funeral home making people feel as valued and well cared for.


Thank you so much for everything you did in support of our family during my dad’s funeral services. You are all true professionals and masters at your services. Thank you sincerely!


I just wanted to express my gratitude to Sam Jr., Matthew and the entire Buranich family for your support after the death of my brother. Your professionalism and genuine compassion was greatly appreciated and will always be remembered by my family. Thank you.


Thanks so much for all your help during my mom’s passing. Every detail was taken care of with dignity! Not only were Sam III and Jason very professional, but also compassionate. Thanks again.

Joan and Sharon

Thank you so much for your patient and gentle guidance during our most emotional and stressful time. Sam III and all the Buranich staff did such a wonderful job. We were very pleased with everything.


My sincerest thank you for all your caring.


Thank you very much for all of your kindness and compassion shown to our family during this difficult time. Everything was just as mom wanted!


Thank you again for all the care and support given to our family at a very difficult time. You were all most helpful especially Matt. We will highly recommend your services to everyone.


Many thanks to Jason and the rest of the Buranich organization for making a difficult time easier. Your professionalism and compassion were very much appreciated.

Dear Sam, Thank you, again, for making one of the toughest times in my life easier with the recent passing of my dad, Gene. Your care and consideration during our time of grief meant a lot to us.


Dear Sammy, There are no words to express how appreciative I am for all you did for us at the passing of my mother. The way you handled and suggested certain details was so helpful and kindhearted. You have such a gift to be doing the difficult job you do. I will never forget what a positive experience I had for such a difficult time… and it was because of you. Thank you again.


Buranich Funeral Home did a wonderful job and I couldn't have been more pleased. Everything was perfect, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you so much.
