I never wanted to lose my parents. They were my best friends and rock solid with wisdom. They made me feel safe. In 1997, Jesus took my father home. I remember the hospital was so quiet, I literally heard my heart beating. As the tears flowed, we prayed and prayed. When it came time to call the Funeral Home, it was a no brainer that we all said "Raccuglia" at the same time. We never used them before, but had been to funerals held in their funeral home. I knew Vinny since I was a little girl as my friend from school lived near him on Sackett St. After a while, it was only natural for me to call him "Uncle Vinny" and I still do to this day. Phillip came to my aid when my father died. He met me, mom, and my sister to make the arrangements. My brother did not know daddy died, and Phillip was sweet enough to stay with us to make sure everyone and everything was done right. On the morning that we were to have Daddy's Mass, I went to the funeral home at 6am. Uncle Vinny saw me get out of a cab, and asked if anything was wrong. I said "no, I just want to spend time alone with Dad, is this ok?" Uncle Vinny, in his own special caring way said..."of course its okay, but if you ever come here again by cab I will be upset. I will send a limo for you!". Such a caring man! At the end, when it was time to close the coffin I could not walk away. My heart was shattered and I wanted to stay with my father. Phillip knew how hurt I was. He came over and very calmly explained to me how Daddy was with Jesus, and it was time for them to meet in Church. Phillip very slowly led me outside to the cars, and I went to St. Stephens feeling better. Thank you Uncle Vinny and Phillip. You are two true gentlemen in a world where not many are easy to find. God Bless you and all you do for your community.
Love, Linda Anders Lieber
Sharing in the Loss of a Loved One – My mother recently passed away in Florida. The Raccuglia & Son Funeral Home took care of everything from the moment I contacted them. Philip was on top of everything, and as always Vincent was there also to comfort us. We have buried five of our family members , and Philip and Vincent took extremely good care of us. As we pray we will lose no more family members we know that is not realistic . We will always be grateful to Philip for his great care and great service. Once again Thank you.
Shame on the Both of You! – What ever happened to the quality of service at Raccuglia & Son.? Where did all the compassion for those in mourning go? I used Raccuglia & Son for years and was always happy with the service I received from Vinny. His son Philip was never as warm as his father was. But I am blown away by the recent experience with this funeral home and can reassure you I will never use them again. Nor will I ever recommend them to others. Since when does an undertaker come to your home the day of your sudden loss and ask for his money in full before providing the service. Where is the compassion for those who are suffering the loss? Since when is money first before providing the service. There comes a time when a business needs to move forward and provide a real bill to his customers . Not a scribbled amount on a back of a business card. What ever happen to an itemized bill. What do you just pull an amount out of your hat? Not fair or legal to your customers. You need to be honest to your customers before promising them the highest quality of service. They are not receiving it. I miss the good old days when this was truly a family business which truly served the community. So sad to see things have changed. Looking for a new undertaker!
The Best – I can't express the value of the experience I had with the 2 Gentleman (Vinny Pop loved you as you know & Phillip your kindness is unbelievable.) Your GREAT!!!!!!
Best place for a funeral – We just lost our grandmother and the Raccuglia family went above and beyond in their efforts to make us feel as though she were their family.
They thought of every detail and allowed us to be able to mourn her with respect and without the additional burden that can come with the planning of a loved ones funeral
We want to thank the Raccuglia family for treating us like family.
Best Funeral Parlor of Brooklyn Cobble Hill – Raccuglia & Son Funeral Home
Customers from all over always come to this funeral parlor because they are the best...you should see how they conduct a Funeral Mass at church Oh My God, every single part is performed so professional...
You don't have to worry about anything with them, that's why no matter how far we move, we all end up back to the old neighborhood to have our families funeral/burials with Raccuglia's in Court Street Cobble Hill Brooklyn... Because we Brooklyn nites have to have it done right, we must look good even at a time like this.
They truly care for you like your own brothers. Treats everyone like family always, so sincere from his heart... Won't take advantage of you either... I've been to many funerals all FIVE BORO's but not like Raccuglia's they're the best. We have know them for over 48 yrs. and still are loved the same.
Still going strong. We love you Vinny...
Caring Funeral Home with a Big Heart – The Funeral home that treats your loved one with respect & dignity. Makes you feel like you are part of his family. Vincent treats you like a brother. He is a spiritual person with a love for his brother man. This is funeral home where you want your loved one to go to their rest from. Thank you Racculglia & Son for being there. May the Lord Give You His Peace!
Quaint surroundings, very professional, extremely caring, a calling not a job, takes care of everything, treats you like family, remembers your names, treats departed with respect and dignity, and did I say treats you like family! I can't think of anything better that could have been done for my mom, or us, then what Vincent and Philip did.
