Melissa and family knew my Mom personally. Being out of state, I was extremely overwhelmed and all I wanted to care about was my Mom being taken care of. Melissa let me know when she [Mom] was safely in New Jersey. I could not have gotten through this without Melissa and the whole Kanapaux family.

The funeral home was very knowledgeable, compassionate, organized and helpful through the complete process of the funeral. I was provided complete details needed via online, such as, choosing a casket, writing an obituary, funeral Mass schedule. The funeral staff was always available to assist during the complete experience.

I highly recommend Morgan Funeral Home because the compassion and caring they show our loved ones. I'm so grateful to them for all they did for us. With that, I will also be preplanning my funeral with Morgan's.

I am forever thankful for the kindness shown by all the people in Rockaway who handled my Dad's funeral arrangements. The assistance they gave to my nephew in navigating stairs etc. was so important and helpful to us all. Despite all the COVID-19 restrictions, Melissa truly made it all vanish for those hours.

I can't say enough how I was put at ease and comfort during the difficult time of the passing of my Mom in January 2021. Everyone from Melissa to the Staff were excellent at attending to our family needs, which is even more difficult during these COVID times. Thank you!

Because of the sudden death of my husband I was totally in shock, Melissa made this process so easy for me and gave wonderful suggestions. Her concern for me and my family was the best and because of the number of visitors to the wake she was able to safely accommodate everyone while protecting my family.

Thank you for taking care of my Mom and letting me know what I needed to know. My Mom was in an Assisted Living in Florida but was being buried in NJ. The arrangements were a little more complicated and you made it all very comforting and less stressful.

I wish I could give Morgan Funeral Home more than 5 stars! They are so compassionate and kind during worse time of our lives. We had 2 family members passed recently and they took such excellent care of them. One was a newborn to my brother and his wife and the other was my mother 12 days before Christmas.The services that Morgan Funeral home provided were over and beyond. Dealing with Melissa ease are pain in the worst time of our lives.In closing the services provided were affordable and professional.I recommend them highly!!!

I would like to give Morgans Funeral Home higher than a five. Melissa the funeral director is the most caring compassionate person. She really feels your sorrow for the loss of your loved one. My mom was sick for quite a while. We had home care and hospice at the house so she could die with dignity in her own home with her loved ones at her side till the very end. I was not sure how she would look if we had to have a closed casket. Melissa spent a lot of time with us. We gave her pictures of my mom. Melissa said she would do her very best to fix her. I was all upset till we went the next day to see our mom. I was so happy Melissa and her staff fixed my mom beautiful. I called the answering the answering service with question which they were very kind. They left a message for Melissa. She called back is less than 2 minutes. Now that is caring personal customer service. Melissa is there for you at all time. It was the worst time of my life that my mother died. She was my mom and my best friend and Melissa made it very comforting. I would recommend Melissa and her staff at Morgans funeral to be your choice too. They made a sorrowful time bearable with alot of caring and real compassion for your loss.

Death of a loved one is very emotional and stressful. Working with the Whitham-Kanapaux staff allowed some of the stress to melt away due to their caring nature and guidance through the funeral process. They stay with the family every step of the way. I would highly recommend using their services should you be in a position of handling this process for a loved one.

I would not hesitate to recommend Whitham-Kanapaux Funeral Home. No one likes to talk about or "use" a Funeral home, but death is part of the reality of life. We have used W-K FH at least 3 times that I can remember. Every time we have been treated with care & kindness. This most recent time was a little complicated as our Mom passed on a cruise and she had to be transported from Miami, FL to Rockaway, NJ. I had to do nothing but give Melissa the information and she took care of everything else. She kept in contact with me on what I needed to know, but did not call unless necessary. They have a great team there and you will be treated with compassion. Again, I would not hesitate to recommend, and of course use them again when necessary.
