We at Dimiceli & Sons Funeral Home have been handling repatriations for many, many years and are familiar with the customs and requirements. We have worked directly with several Consulates, in particular the Indian Consulate (for those Air India personnel who die while on a flight lay-over in New York City), the Italian Consulate, and the Consulate of Singapore. We had the privilege of recently sending a dear man to Argentina so he could be laid to rest in his hometown of Rosaria. We had occasion to send a young man’s cremated remains back to Spain and another young man back to his hometown in Peru, and have assisted with sending a young boy who was killed in a horrific accident back to Russia. We have sent both human remains and cremains back to Canada, Philippines, England, Ireland, France, Germany, Romania, to name but a few more. We are available to assist any and all consulates at any time.
This is what one of our clients had to say about our repatriation of his mother-in-law:
“My mother-in-law had wanted to be buried in her hometown in Italy, we worked with Josephine Dimiceli, she was wonderful. She "knows the ropes" on this process, and she knows the staff in the Italian Consulate and at Alitalia, which helped this complex process move forward very smoothly. She and her colleagues treated us with sympathy and support and in a very professional manner, all the way through the process. The final cost was almost exactly what she had estimated -- that is pretty impressive considering all of the variables. She was always available to answer our questions and deal with paperwork. And she is a nice and respectful person. We could not have been more satisfied. Summary: A+++++.
In every respect, Dimiceli & Sons, Inc... maintains a tradition of excellence with dignity, respect and of course, personal service to your family's needs and wishes.
