It’s natural for people to “feel at home” at Gibbons Family Funeral Home. As Michael Gibbons, a third generation member of his family to own and operate the Funeral Home, states, “My father always wanted our building to feel like home, and it was our home. We lived upstairs, and the people who came here were our friends and neighbors. It was our honor to open our home to them.”
Katie Sweeney agrees whole-heartedly, as she explains how her mother and generations of her family discussed the importance of choosing the place that not only ‘felt like home’, but was home to families and friends in the neighborhood and even beyond. She uses words and feelings like ‘comfort’ and ‘warmth’ to describe how, she, her mom, her grandma, her entire family felt about the Gibbons Family and their home.
To be certain; this feeling of home is no accident at Gibbons.. It’s the result of strong effort, design and commitment from 3 Generations of the Gibbons Family serving even more generations of yours. So to Katie and so many other of our treasured families; It’s an honor.
For Tom Gibbons, the most important thing you could do for a family grieving was to provide a space for them that ‘felt like home’. As a little boy growing up above the funeral home, it was natural for Michael Gibbons to think of the space this way because it was home to his family.
