Williams Lombardo has handled all of our family members funerals, with the most recent one for my sister. I can't say enough about how the staff are very professional with so much compassion and understanding. I want to especially thank Joe for being so caring and helpful during this difficult time. He really went out of his way to make everything just perfect. Thank you so much.

Joe, Thanks again to you and your team at Williams-Lombardo. From start to finish you and your staff provided us with excellent service and were a great pleasure to deal with in every way. It was especially comforting to have Jim provide us with the initial transport from lima estates. His sensitivity and protocol during a difficult day was much appreciated. My Dad would have been honored to know that he was being escorted by a long serving veteran of the Marine corps.If you have one, Can you please let me know of an address that i can send a thank you to the local arm of the Marine Corp for providing us with the time and talents of those young men at the cemetery yesterday. It was a tremendous honor for us to have had them there at the burial of my father. Regards and thank you again. Dan Orlando

Krista, On behalf of my entire family, I want to thank you for all that you did to make this day, although sad, very memorable. Everything went so smoothly and most importantly, my Aunt Frances looked fantastic. I know for certain that Frances would have been happy with the way she looked. The wig was perfect. Also, the earrings were a beautiful added touch that we didn't think to do and her nails looked wonderful. Your caring and compassionate nature is the perfect fit for those going through such a difficult time. Frances was lucky to have you looking over her. Again, thank you.

I just saw a news clip of the 'unique' service you offer - you hired a staff comedian. I think that's great idea! If a person has lived a full life, there's no need to be sorry for them - that's what I want. And I would hope that the way I lived my [full] life would be an inspiration for others to get up off their ass and DO something with their lives before it too late! For my funeral, I would like to be buried at sunset. I don't see the sense of marking the END of a person's life at the BEGINNING of a day. I hope a funeral home in the Greater Cleveland area adopts your 'attitude'. Thank you.

John, Cleveland, OH October 07, 2012

Hi Joe, That was a great article in today's Times. You are on "the cutting edge". Best Wishes, Pat

Your professionalism is matched with such heartfelt caring in all of the preparations and the service. Thanks so much.

Gail G.

Dear Mike, words cannot express our gratitude for your sensitivity and caring with regard to our son's funeral arrangements. We are grateful for everything you did. You are a very kind man and we thank you so much. God bless you!

Lynne & Dick H.

Although no one really wants to have to rely on your profession, it is essential; and it is gratifying to deal with someone as reliable and accommodating, not to mention warm and friendly as you have been. Everyone who attended the service remarked on how well it went.

Mrs. R. L. K.

Michael, My heartfelt thanks to you for all the time, effort and attention to detail you provided. I will always remain grateful to you in making this last tribute to Marianna a truly lovely and memorable one.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you DID! We will never forget.

Larry And The Boys

Thank you for relieving me of so many worries at that time.

Carolyn C.

Thank you for doing so much to make this time as pleasant as possible. You were so kind, so gracious, so thoughtful that words alone are inadequate.


Mike, Thank you so much for such a beautiful funeral for my sweet brother. We appreciate all your hard work.


Thank you for your kind understanding as you guided us thru the details of my husband's funeral. Your gentle compassion made a difficult time easier. God bless you.

I just wanted to send you a quick thank you note for making your pet page - http://everafterpets.petpassages.com/grief-support As a new pet owner myself, your page has been a big help to me and my family! This year, I promised my kids we would get a dog for Christmas if they kept their grades up in school for the first half of the year ; I'm happy to say they did! Never owning a pet before, my husband and I wanted to do some research. Your page helped out a lot! It might be a bit premature to start thinking about the loss of our new pet, but I want to make sure my kids (and the whole family, actually!) are prepared. Positive encouragement goes such a long way! Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate it. ~ The Donner Family

Abby Donner March 03, 2016

Joe, Just wanted to thank you all for the lovely funeral you provided to my mother, Stella Miller.

My sister and I want to thank all your staff for their excellent assistance in making this day bearable for us and their kind care. Thanks Again David Miller

Joe, Mom's video is AWESome! Thank you for a beautiful tribute to her.

Blythe Family August 06, 2014

I have been to a large number of viewings/services/funerals/memorials in the last 20 years. The viewing /service you put together for my Uncle Bob was by far the best (if that even the right term for such an event) atmosphere, staff service and facility that I have ever attended. One of the things that impressed me was the kids room. I took my six year old and all she wanted to do was stay in there and color. No time for that, and she was disappointed. Another thing was the pre cremation bed. I have had a number of relatives pass young and many survivors were upset they had to go to the coroners office to view the body and the conditions were (operating room like). None of the Funeral homes offered that option. Kudos to all of you , and continued success on a top notch operation. Woody Jr.

Hi Joe, I just read the article in the Daily Times and could not help but smile . When I came to you in November 2002 and told you that my husband wanted to be buried in a clown outfit you did not blink an eye . His funeral was dignified and beautiful - it was just what he wanted . I can still see our family and friends as they came through the receiving line - smiles on their faces as tears rolled down their cheeks. I am glad to see that you are continuing to make people happy at such a sad time . Paula Cilurso Berger
