Long Island Funeral Home, Branch Funeral Home is owned and operated by the Vigliante family, The Branch Funeral Home is definitely not your typical funeral firm. What makes this funeral home so different?
We like to create a personal tribute for each family,says John Vigliante, an owner and funeral director. A truly personal remembrance is more than just a way to express your love. It is also more meaningful for your loved ones, strengthening the connections between people and giving comfort where it is needed most. We design a remembrance that captures the history, personality and accomplishments that make every life unique.
One particularly unique service The Branch Funeral Home offers is the creation of Lifegems. These certified, high-quality diamonds are created from the carbon of a passed loved one. The funeral home also offers keepsakes called thumbies, in which the finger or footprints of a passed loved one are fashioned into intricately detailed jewelry. Both of these distinctive mementos provide a timeless way for family members to embrace the memory of their loved one.
The Branch Funeral Home also offers some uncommon funeral transportation options, including a motorcycle hearse and a top-of-the-line 47-passenger bus that allows an entire procession to travel together.
