Thank you to Andrea Blackwood & her staff for all their help & support in the passing of our Aunt. Andrea was truly amazing & compassionate. She treated us like family & made sure nothing was overlooked during a very difficult time. We were extremely grateful for the guidance on florist & restaurant venue. Thank you all!
I have been to many different funerals in my life and have always been impressed with the way things were handled at the Doyle Funeral Home. So when my Dad suddenly passed I already knew that Doyle was my choice immediately. How right that choice turned out be, as Andrea treated us like Family and attended to everything and anything we needed or requested with the utmost professionalism, compassion and sincerity. We felt at ease and comforted with her and their services for my Dad.
I contacted Andrea when my father died suddenly last week, on the recommendation of my Aunt. I was completely overwhelmed by the thought of making arrangements for my father, and Andrea put me at ease right away. She is warm, compassionate, and walked me through the entire process. She was incredibly responsive, answered my calls and emails right away, and really did everything for us so we did not have to worry. I truly appreciate Andrea and the wonderful service she provided. My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
There are no words to adequately express my sincere gratitude to Moriah and Gregory Doyle Funeral Home for the compassion that was displayed to me and my family during the most difficult period that we have ever sustained as a family through the loss of my husband, companion and partner Peter J. Leto. From the moment we met, Moriah put us all at ease with her warmth and caring demeanor. She handled all the aspects that one never thinks about during such a time, all the practical matters such as the insurance claim, obituary, death certificate, and so much more. Moriah treated us seemingly as she would have treated her own family member. Although she had never met Peter, Moriah had such a respect for his memory and our strong desire to honor him. While Covid 19 restrictions needed to be adhered to, I do not think Peter’s service could have been any more beautiful. Moreover, Moriah made herself available to me and checked in throughout the difficult process. I even had her personal cell number so she could be accessible to me whenever I had a question or needed her input. One never fully understands, until something like this happens to you, the importance of choosing the right Funeral Director. I absolutely made the right choice and would recommend Doyle Funeral Home to anyone. I honestly do not know how I would have made it through without Moriah, she went above and beyond in every way. I will always be grateful to her, and never forget her many kindnesses and support.
I can’t express enough how much I appreciate Andrea during this past month after my Mom passed away. My mom passed at home and when we called Doyle they were at our home within the hour to come and get her. When my sister and I met with Andrea she listened to our wants but also offered LOTS of help on how to make the service and remembrance of our Mom perfect. Her attentiveness to my sister and I has been amazing during the time we need it the most. Thank you so much Andrea and Doyle Funeral Home for everything you have done for us! (Especially these beautiful thumbie necklaces!!!)
On June 9, 2019 we experienced the unexpected death of Mike’s dad. We had to make a quick decision about a funeral home and a family member recommended Doyle based on her past experience with them. We are so happy with our choice! Andrea kindly and gently walked my husband and I through the initial process of making decisions just hours after learning of the death. She knew exactly what to say to help Mike figure it all out amidst the shock of this unexpected event. Moriah took time to sit and listen to stories about Dad and about other life challenges we were facing at the same time. Empathy is an essential skill in a funeral director and both Moriah and Andrea demonstrate it in every interaction. Both of them were always readily available to answer our questions and to help us understand the process.
The day of the funeral, everyone at Doyle was amazing. Their attention to detail, flexibility, and kindness to us and our family and friends created an environment of remembrance that we will truly never forget. Little touches like military recognition were completely handled by Moriah and Andrea and added so much to the service. We truly felt like family throughout the process. Our father’s life was honored and we were cared for throughout this difficult process. My husband and I highly recommend the Gregory F. Doyle Funeral Home.
Our dad passed away at 87 years old at Mercy Hospital in Massachusetts on the morning of March 5th. We were unprepared for this moment thinking our father was getting better.
We knew he would want his services in Milford where we all spent a major part of our life. There are quite a few funeral parlors in town but we didn’t want something that didn’t feel like family.
Some places are so large that you lose that feeling, but the Doyle funeral home gives you a warm comfort during difficult times without multiple funerals at the same time.
The director Moriah and her assistant Andrea were extremely compassionate and helpful planning our father’s service. They made sure he was brought back to Connecticut immediately and did wonderful work with all the preparations for that week. They helped us graciously with every step of the process which took a lot of pressure off us during a very difficult time.
They helped us from casket choice, flowers, religious services, obituary and making arrangements for his ashes / funeral at St Cathrines cemetery in Pennsylvania.
Moriah and Andrea treated us like family and at a time of a parents death that service was priceless.
Thank you Michael, Grace and Angela
Dear Moriah and Andrea, When my heart and mind was in turmoil, you treated me with compassion as we discussed the details of my husband Jim's funeral arrangements. Thank you for your caring, yet professional manner. I am grateful for the service that you provide with such grace. Blessings, Donna Jackson
My family and I would like to thank you Moriah and Andrea on the beautiful arrangements you made for my Mother, Lorraine Rabbito. The warmth and compassion you extended to us was gratefully appreciated. Warmest regards, Mary Xydias Robert Whalen and Deana Rae
Dear Moriah and Andrea, I wanted to thank you for the compassionate and respectful manner in which my father Leo Dunn's services were handled. We were treated like family and it made this process much easier on all of us. We had the same experience for my mother's services in 2005 as well as my brother Kevin in 2015. I would not hesitate to refer anyone to you in their time of need. Sincerely, Laura Dunn Woyciesjes and the family of Leo J Dunn Jr.
Dear Moriah, Andrea and Staff,
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for the wonderful job you did with our beloved Father's services on April 2nd & 3rd. Your compassion and professionalism during this painful time was beyond measure, just as it was when you handled our Mother and brother Kevin. We received many wonderful comments about how lovely everything turned out for Dad and we know he was giving it his nod of approval too. Your attention to detail is second to none and our family would never trust anyone else but Doyle's with our departed family's final arrangements. You are very special people; we will remember you all in our prayers.
Karen Dunn-Grillo Family of Leo J. Dunn, Jr.
As the rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church I have worked with the staff at Doyle's Funeral Home on several occasions. I have always found them to be extremely compassionate, caring and accommodating. Last week when my own mother-in-law passed away, it was my time to be the mourner. Of course, we wanted to go to Doyles. Moriah and her staff handled every detail of the service with grace and professionalism. They gave us helpful suggestions to make the service both meaningful and personal. Including taking our large plastic bag filled with old photos and turning it into a beautiful video tribute! But, their job doesn't stop there, when my son needed some quite time to grieve before joining the church service, Moriah let him stay at the funeral home for as long as he needed. We felt like we were being cared for by family. Thank-you, from the entire Leonard-Pasley family

Your kindness and support was very comforting during our time of sorrow . Moriah , you went above and beyond to make sure all our requests were met. You treated us like family from the moment we made our first phone call.
