Benjamin Franklin once said, “In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” If the Founding Father were alive today, he might add to that short list the Doherty Funeral Home service guarantee, which has been their mantra for decades.
“If you are not completely satisfied with any of the professional services, facilities, or automotive services provided, you will not be charged for that item of service,” Vice President Bill Doherty III said. “We are also one of the only funeral homes in the area to provide each family that we serve with a questionnaire to gain feedback to help improve our business.”
Inside the funeral homes, the Doherty staff offer specialized services like memorial video tributes and digital fingerprint jewelry. The funeral home also reaches out to help the community. In addition to supporting local Catholic churches through 5K races and golf outings, it hosts an annual bereavement program called “Holiday Hope.” The campaign offers practical solutions on how to deal with grief during the holiday season. It’s free of charge and open to everyone, even to families Doherty has not served in the past.
