Traditional funeral bouquets, floor baskets, vase arrangements, funeral wreaths or standing baskets are a beautiful tribute to honor the memory of a loved one who has departed. On Staten Island, 25 of 29 funeral homes inspected received at least one violation and Matthew Funeral Home, Willowbrook, Virginia Funeral Chapel, Dongan Hills Menorah Chapels, New Springville, and All Boro Funeral Home, which operates out of Scamardella Funeral Home in West Brighton, were each issued four violations, the most in the borough -- although some business in other parts of the city wracked up as many seven violations. Why not give a funeral home a warning, it sort of gives me the impression they need to raise money. Similarly the cost for a burial plot in Staten Island, will affect your final funeral expenses. The industry needs to follow these important laws and I urge New Yorkers to call if they experience a problem. A direct cremation is a basic cremation service without a ceremony.
