She brought us comfort in one of the toughest times in our lives. We will forever be grateful for her genuine kindness. The world needs more people like Andrea, our community is lucky to have her. Plainville Funeral Home is a beautiful facility ran by a wonderful person.
I was recently faced with the worst day of my life, losing my mom and best friend to cancer at age 66. My mom was full of life, an avid gardener, birdwatcher and passionate about nature and being outdoors. Having never had to plan a funeral before I did not know what to expect, I just knew I wanted it to honor my mother's personality and life. I immediately knew I could not have her services at any funeral home, it needed to reflect her, it needed to be bright, clean, airy, peaceful and happy. I had driven past Plainville Funeral Home many times since it had opened admiring the beauty of the building, landscaping and ease of parking. When my mom passed, I knew that was where I would want to bring her, I knew that is what she deserved. Upon walking into the building I felt an overwhelming sense of comfort and peace. It is not your traditional antiquated funeral home, dark and depressing, but rather peaceful and inviting. It is a place intended to provide a sense of calm, comfort and serenity for families to gather to pay respects to their loved ones. Upon meeting with Andrea it made perfect sense this was her passion and vision for her business. She was professional and compassionate, she took her time with us and had a genuine interest in getting to know my mom and how we could make her funeral radiate her personality. I had very specific nontraditional requests for a destination funeral in a garden for my mother. I wanted her funeral to be where she loved to be most. Andrea took note of all my desires, assuring me she would make all the necessary arrangements to make my moms service as I visioned. At the conclusion of our meeting, although my heart still heavy with sorrow, I had an overwhelming sense of peace knowing my precious mom was in Andrea's care and that her arrangements would be as beautiful as she was. The communication with Andrea and her partner Jesse on the days leading up to my moms funeral were unsurpassed. Every detail was carefully executed, leaving me no worry or stress. Her funeral was perfect, the details, the garden and even a surprise of the release of white doves. I know my mom must have felt like royalty as she smiled down from Heaven. Andrea and Jesse are the best in the business and my mother's services reflected their care, professionalism and competence. Andrea and Jesse made the last gift I was able to give my amazing mother one that honored her life. Although I hope to not have to lose another loved one, I am at peace knowing when it does happen that I have Andrea and Jesse to hold my hand.
When making funeral arrangements, please talk with Andrea Wasley, owner and lifelong Plainville resident, of Plainville Funeral Home. She will comfort you and far exceed your expectations. Andrea let us make all the decisions on our arrangements. Her only policy is to do everything possible to make your wishes come true. While making funeral arrangements for a fantastic Mom, we heard a lot of “We have a family tradition at (unnamed funeral home), we must go there and can’t go anywhere else.” Do you want to do business with a funeral home that is owned and operated by a massive corporation? Do you want the policies and decisions affecting your loved ones coming from a board room more than 1500 miles away? Do you want you funeral to be run by a conglomeration of over 200 funeral homes? Stop in and see Andrea instead, and be sure to bring the phone # of the family’s good ole standby funeral home, so you can cancel them out. John J. Kissane - bestie of Kathie I. Felice
