When I found out that my cat, Max, was critically ill, I knew I wanted to have him cremated so I began to call around for pricing. When I spoke to Phillip at Oak Crest on the phone, it was his voice of sympathy and compassion that made me feel that I had found the right place. Knowing that Max would have a private cremation and knowing that he would be handled with love and care brought about a peace that I can not explain. And their pricing was the best I found too! Both for the cremation and for the urn. When Max passed away, the compassion Phillip expressed was more than I expected. Most people do not understand what our pets mean to us. We lost a family member that day…he wasn’t just our cat. If you are looking for a place that will treat your pet with respect, love and care, I highly recommend Oak Crest Pet Crematory. Not only was Phillip kind, sympathetic and compassionate, he had Max back to us that same day. 5 stars, 2 thumbs up. Thanks Phillip!

Unfortunately, I lost my best friend Sasha last month. Philip Donatelli made one of the worst days of my life go as smoothly as it possibly could have. As some others have said, my Sasha also passed very late in the day and Philip stayed late for me in order to provide cremation services. Having never had to experience pet cremation before, I had no idea what to expect. Philip showed great compassion - towards Sasha and to us, before and after the cremation. He treated my Sasha like you would expect a human member of the family to be treated. For devoted pet parents like us, we couldn't have asked for more. I hope it's a very long time before I have to call on them again, but when the need arises, there is no doubt who I will be calling. If you are looking for a professional and compassionate experience during a sad and traumatic time, you will not be disappointed by the Donatelli's Oak Crest Pet Crematory.
My dog was diagnosed with a serious illness, and I knew that I wanted to have her cremated and began to call around for information. One I called was nice and business-like but very matter of fact; another was way, way too intense, going so far as to ask when her death would occur! When I found Eternity Pet Memorial, I knew I had found the right place. They were very prompt at responding to my email requesting information, which is great if you are not ready to talk about final arrangements. When the morning came, Patrick was extremely caring and professional. Lucky's remains were returned in a personalized tin with certificate and Rainbow Bridge poem. I can't say enough about the outstanding service provided by Eternity Pet Memorial and highly recommend them.
When you realize it is time to say good bye to your best buddy, Eternity Pet Memorial is the place you want to phone. I have used Patrick Vereb three times over the past couple years as my elderly dogs were terminal or in poor health and he is truly a remarkable person. He puts the process in to prospective in a caring and positive manner. He helps remove the guilt that burdens your heart and soul. Now I have a new crew of rescue young dogs and I hope they live long happy lives like my last three did, however, Eternity Pet Memorial will be the only one I will call upon. I wish I could add another five stars to the rating because he deserves it.
At a time when I needed an angel most not for me but for my sweet baby, Goldie, I found one in Patrick. He provided not only professional assistance far above and beyond anything I could have imagined but comfort, reassurance and most important, Patrick treated Goldie with the utmost respect, dignity and loving care she deserved. When he chose this profession Patrick truly became a blessed angel for innocents who deserve nothing less. You cannot put a price on the service he provides and if you did it would be much more than he asks. I look at Goldie's picture everyday and say thank you to Patrick.
Sam was my best friend. We were lucky to have him with us for 13 years. He had a bad few years and then suffered from a tumor which made his walking almost impossible. We had him euthanised. It broke my heart. I wanted him to be with me forever and only him. The Eternity Pet Memorial showed us kindness and returned Sam to us. It made me feel so much better having him home again. They did an exceptional job. His private cremation and his remains were returned and helped with the grieving process.
Our little girl of 16 yrs passed away at 5:30pm and did not know what we were going to do. I called Oak Crest and talked to Philip Donatelli and asked what arrangements we could make and found out that he was closing in 10 minutes. I told my wife I could take her tomorrow at 7:30 am but she was too upset to wait. I called Philip back and he was so understanding he said he would wait for us. He showed so much compassion and respect, that i will never forget
We were so happy with the care and understanding that Patrick Vereb gave us on the loss of our cat Camille. We lost her 2 days before Christmas, called Patrick at Pet Memorial on December 26 and she was back to us in a beautiful wooden box with her picture on it, on December 29. He even had her paw print in clay and framed beautifully, with her picture on the back. We could tell that Patrick is an animal lover. We highly recommend Pet Memorial!
We lost our beloved Maxwell on December 30, 2014,only 2 months after the loss of our beloved BlackJack. I called Phil the day before,I knew we were putting Maxwell to rest. Phil remember us from 2 months earlier. Maxwell was home with us that afternoon and is between his 2 brothers. Read my review below and double the comments and appreciation. I only wish, I knew Phil back in 2003, when for the first time ever we put our beloved Tash to rest.
I recently had to make one of the hardest decisions in my life- to put my canine friend to rest. I am sure if you are reading my review, you are probably either in planning stages or have found yourself in the same situation. Our vet recommended Eternity. I was AMAZED by the personal attention Mr. Vereb gave to us and the quality of services. I really wasn't sure what to expect, but everything was done very tastefully.
