We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
Dear Rocco: The St. Pio Society of Holy Rosary Church thanks you for your devotion to St. Pio and your generosity toward our Society. Your support, friendship and assistance in our efforts to publicize St. Padre Pio and bring his message to the people of our Parish and Staten Island are much appreciated.
The spiritual holy cards that you made up this year, showing St. Pio giving a blessing, and with a most appropriate prayer, were distributed to participants at our 9th Annual Padre Pio Procession and Feast Day Mass held on Thursday September 23.
In addition, we were so pleasantly surprised to find two beautiful, seasonal floor baskets with the note, "In prayerful rememberance of Padre Pio, Martin Hughes Funeral Home" in front of the alter. You went above and beyond this year, and our Celebration of the Mass in Honor of Padre Pio was enhanced by your thoughfulness.
We are always thankful that you have joined with us in continuing the mission of Padre Pio by inspiring people to pray and work for the good of all those who are in need. Thank you for your constant participation and collaboration in this work. We pray that God blesses you and your loved ones, and especially your dear daughter Caroline, through the intercession of St. Pio.
Gratefully, Dennis R. Brown, President

I am so grateful to Rocco and his staff. You made one of the worst days of my life easier so that I could mourn my mother's loss without worrying about her wake. Rocco was amazing and comforting. Thank you!
Services for the late Patricia Balzomo
There are not enough words to fully express how thankful I am for the services that Rocco and his staff provided for me and my family. Although it is a business for him he showed such sympathy for my family and showed that he cared and was there to support my family’s wishes and concerns through this tough time. When I turned to Rocco for help I was still in shock that I lost my father and was in no state of mind to be picking out arrangements, but Rocco was there every step of the way and was so supportive of every decision I chose! Thank you again!
The director Rocco and his assistant Mary Ann were extremely helpful and went out of their way to make the family comfortable during our recent loss. They went beyond with their presentation of our brother, Andrew L. Vrabel, even placing a silhouette of a container ship upon his casket commemorating his service as a merchant seaman. Also making sure that all our wishes were carried out. We would highly recommend the services of Martin Hughes Funeral Home for anyone who suffered a loss.
I can’t possibly put into words how thankful we are for Rocco, and the services he provided us during a most difficult time. Preparing for the funeral is a job no one wants to do. Once we sat down with him, it was all in his hands. He took care of everything, including suggesting florists, a restaurant to go between viewings, writing an obituary, and so much more....to make sure we didn’t leave anything out. He covered every detail and we didn’t have to see anyone else to get everything done. . Rocco was more than accommodating, and went out of his way to provide us what we needed with some special circumstances as well. HIGHLY recommending this funeral home without hesitation for white glove service. You will not regret. Thank you again for all you do. With Love from the entire Logue Family
We were very satisfied and would definitely recommend highly and would definitely consider for future needs.
Thank you Rocco and Staff.

Everything was beautiful! Everyone was so helpful. Martin Hughes is very family oriented. Even the drivers were great. Most of all, Marianne made my Mom look absolutely beautiful, just as she was her whole life. That for me was the most important. Rocco the owner is a complete gentleman with a heart of gold!
I was at two other funerals before Noreen's, my wife. Noreen and I had picked Martin Hughes. They really took the stress out of the situation, and they showed an extreme amount of reaching out.
