We receive many letters from the families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss. Their words warm our hearts, and speak to you of our professionalism, compassion, and the true value of the services we provide.

I wanted to write this review because I have to talk about Jonathan. Mr. Jonathan Duran is a god send. From the moment my parents, sisters, and myself walked into the funeral home he made us feel comfortable and at ease. This was such a difficult time for us losing the youngest sibling of the family unexpectedly crushed us to the core. But I must say he made us feel comfortable and at ease. He reassured and provided his assistance every step of the way. He gave us his personal phone number and told us to contact him anytime He ensured we sent her away in the best possible way with the best. He guided us and lead us to ensure we were okay and ensure the choices we made we were comfortable with. From day one my mother said she loved his personality and his reception of us when we arrived day one. He continued to provide great service from day one to many days following the service. He ensured services started on time and that we arrived at the cemetery on time. After the burial he stayed and ensured we were okay and that he saw my mom and dad and offered his condolences to my parents once again. Oh the dove release was the best. I thought maybe two doves they had 12. It was fabulous. We even felt my baby sister was one of the doves because one sat in the basket looking around before she flew off. We laughed and said that’s Nessa she’s always late. I know this is long but the lost we suffered on April 3 rd was devastating to our family but Jonathan assisted us in sending her off in magnificent style. Thank you Jonathan you are a gem. Love always Meredith

I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to Mr. Jonathan Duran. Mr. Duran is a true professional, courteous and very willing to help. I mention this specifically, as there was difficulty regarding transportation to the funeral.  Mr. Duran unselfishly volunteered his time to accommodate and provide transportation! This is above and beyond! He is truly an asset to Alexander-Levitt Organization. You have my sincerest gratitude. Thank you!  Howard S.

Jonathan our final director was very helpful, kind, and respectful. He got all our funeral wishes done so quickly including contacting the navy for their funeral honors. A real mensch.

But AGAIN a BIG THANK YOU!!! My best and regards F

Dear Michael - It is very difficult to put into words the overwhelming gratitude we have for you. At the darkest time in our lives you honored our son and us in many thoughtful ways. But it was your very warm and personal touch that made the biggest difference. Some good has come of this tragedy as colder continues to change the would be saving lives and spreading joy. For me, one of the best things was meeting you and being able to call you my friend.

Much appreciation from myself and my family. Happy Passover. Warmest

We'll miss our dad, stepfather and Zayde tremendously. You have helped us honor his memory. It's your kindness that has been a source of comfort to all of us. Oh, and thank you for the yummy platter of desserts and for visiting with us during shiva.

Z's Family

In addition I want to add that I was very impressed with all the attention and compassion demonstrated by every one at Blasberg, Rubin and Zilbert. These are troubling moments for a family and I felt that every step was taken to make it less painful for me and my family. Thanks again for all of your efforts.


Michael, We’re so fortunate to have had your support through all of this and we’ll forever be grateful to you and your family. Take care


Thank you so much. I really appreciate the level of care and compassion your funeral home has given T.


Hi Murray, G. was very pleased and thanked me for referring you to her. She said you were very comforting and professional and I believe she is waiting to hear back from you on pricing. Thanks for taking care of her.


Michael On behalf of my entire family, we cannot thank you enough for taking us through this entire process. We know this is what you do for a living ,and that is to treat every family with the utmost attention, sympathy and dignity. However, we cant help but feel that you were not only doing your job, rather your friendship and love came through. Words do not so justice to how we feel what you did for us.


Claire, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to your wonderful staff. I arrived today (Sunday) with my partner, my cousin and my elderly mother to visit my grandmother's gravesite. I did not realize that the cemetery closed at 4pm. I drove down from Boynton Beach, picked my mother up in Aventura, and drove back to the cemetery arriving very close to 4pm. In spite of the late hour, your staff was warm, welcoming, helpful and kind, even personally escorting us to the right spot. It's not frequent that people go the extra mile these days! Thank you very much for the TLC!


It has taken me so long to get through all of this but please know on behalf of my mom and my brother we sincerely thank you for your generosity and friendship. Losing dad has been more painful than i could have ever imagined. I know you both suffered as well and nothing can replace what is lost. You both are so giving of yourselves and Michael I can't than you enough for your friendship, caring and comfort. Your children are truly blessed. Please know from the bottom of my heart how much you both mean to me.

On a very hot afternoon, being under the western afternoon sun, you came to my rescue. I am so grateful to you both for your assistance on Wednesday, April 24 at the funeral of D. K. You selflessly rescued me, after being unable to get to my car from my wheelchair. This act of kindness was done with humor, kindness and dignity. Endless thanks for your help. Very sincerely

C.H. May 07, 2013

Dear Murray, My brother and I wanted to drop you a short note of thanks, for the way you assisted us in the burial of our beloved mother R.F.. We believe that the exceptional service you and your staff provided us, helped us with our grief. There was also a family situation which needed an experienced person such as yourself to handle. All of our questions were answered and you never hesitated to explain fully what was involved. Although burying ones mother is never a pleasurable situation, because of you, it was made a little more tolerable. All of this is rare in today's world .

M & G F. April 09, 2013

Claire - Thank you for taking care of the arrangements for the permanent photo of R. and I that was put on the front of our wall. Mere words cannot express the emotions I felt when I saw it. As I struggle with my loss, it brings a sense of comfort knowing that our photo will always be there. I visit R. every Sunday and I know this photo will bring me joy!

D.C April 04, 2013

Dear Claire, Just a note to let you know that everything went well on Feb 5th. The tent and chairs were a very nice touch and everything was covered as you assured us. Thank you for all your assistance. We greatly appreciate the special way you treated us which helped to make this time much easier.

R. & B. W. February 20, 2013

Murray: Thank you for all of your help in connection with my dad's funeral. You, Steve and your personnel carried out my dad's pre-arranged plans with sensitivity, dignity and efficiency. He would have been pleased. You helped ease our burden, and we will always be grateful. Thanks Again.

D.B. March 28, 2013

On behalf of my family I want to thank you for the fine services you extended to us. It was exactly what we wanted and what R. would have expected. Btw, my mother looked fabulous and at peace. If you were directly involved in this process, I want to commend you and/or your colleague(s) for the exceptional care and talent.

L. V-L March 05, 2013

Now that Shiva for my Mom is finished, and I've got a few moments to reflect before leaving New York to return home, I want to take a moment, Murray, to thank you so very much for your kindness on the loss of my Mom. Your thoughtfulness meant a great deal to me, to my brothers, and to our whole family. Please know that we will be eternally grateful. With my profound thanks

G. January 22, 2013

To Whom It May Concern: I am writing to you to express my deepest thanks for the wonderful job that was done by your funeral home arranging the burial of my mother M. K. on March 2, 2012. My mother passed away on the evening of February 29, while I was home in New Jersey. Beginning with a phone call from Marc Becker later that night, followed by a call from Neal Hornfeld, we were able to set up the beginning of plans for the funeral. The kindness and compassion they had on the phone immediately made me feel comfortable that we were in "good hands". My family and I flew down the next morning and met with Neal and Marc on the afternoon of March 1. The meeting went extremely well, allowing my family and I to relax during the process of choosing the coffin, and all other details that were needed to make a nice funeral. As a bonus, Marc was even able to help us make arrangements for a catered lunch at Maggiano's for the attendees after the funeral. In addition, Neal was able to set up everything needed to transport my mother to Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, NY for a graveside service on Sunday, March 4. All we had to do was show up on time. It was a pleasure to work with Neal and Marc: they made the funeral, lunch, and a graveside service 1200 miles away a satisfying experience, With my deepest thanks to Neal and Marc for their professionalism and compassion, I remain, Sincerely,


I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to Mr. Jonathan Duran. Mr. Duran is a true professional, courteous and very willing to help. I mention this specifically, as there was difficulty regarding transportation to the funeral.  Mr. Duran unselfishly volunteered his time to accommodate and provide transportation! He is truly an asset to Alexander-Levitt Organization. You have my sincerest gratitude. Thank you!  Howard S.

Howard Seiden October 29, 2020

I want to personally thank Jon Duran. He handled my grandma's services with such professionalism and care. He went beyond the extra mile and was always available, no matter the time and place. My grandma case was more complex, since we wanted to send her body to El Salvador. Jon handled everything quicky and thanks to his support, everything turned out good. I hope this reaches Jon's bosses, so you can realize how exceptional of an employee you have!

Andy M.

I want to thank Jonathan Duran for his outstanding help during a most difficult time for our family. Jonathan assisted with the final preparations without there being any issues. Jonathan demonstrated compassion and was able to help us during this difficult moment. On behalf of the Colon family we are extremely satisfied with the services provided by Jonathan and the Funeral home at Alexander Levitt in Tamarac.

Mayra C. January 21, 2020

Hi, Murray, Just letting u know I received death certificates from G. Funeral Home. I guess that would be sufficient. Do not order any additional. Thank you very much for making the funeral process a positive experience. I am grateful for your help and comfort. Please thank Mark for his original guidance. Hope to see you someplace on better occasions. L.S & Family

Mark Ginsburg did a very good job managing my father's September 1 funeral and interment. He represents your organization in a most professional manner. R.F


Hi Jane, I have been wanting to extend a huge thank you to you and all of Beth David Memorial Gardens for helping us carry out my father’s final wishes. You were so warm and compassionate during the planning of my father’s and brother’s final resting place. And everyone who helped us when we arrived on June 12th was so kind. I really had no idea what to do or expect when we got there and the Beth David staff gave us invaluable guidance that day. The little touches they added, including setting out chairs, giving us prayer books and providing us with the dirt from Jerusalem for the urns were so extremely thoughtful. I really appreciate everything that you all did for us and I know that my father would be very pleased. Please extend a thank you to the rest of the staff for me. Enjoy the rest of your summer, L


Michael--it was good seeing you again today, and I just wanted to take a moment to once again thank you for making all of the arrangements seamless and efficiently. You handled everything beautifully and I am very appreciative and grateful for your expertise and personal interest in arranging J's funeral. S.C


Hi Marilyn, I just wanted to say thank you again for all you and Levitt-Weinstein accomplished for our family earlier this week. In a difficult time it was a blessing to have Mark and staff take care of everything so smoothly. D.A


Claire - Thank you so much for the great work and the picture too. I have shown it to my sisters and we all agree that it's perfect. We will be in touch regarding the unveiling as soon as we all figure that part out. Grateful for the respect, care and quality workmanship your team has put in to my parents resting places. Warm regards, I.P


Hi Michele, Just wanted to thank you again for everything you have done for my family with my dad and my mom. We are hoping to get there 6/20 for the unveiling since my sister works at a camp and camp starts the following week. It's people that you that make this world a better place. You are a wonderful person. I can't thank you enough.


Dear Claire, I can't begin to tell you how much my brother and I appreciate that you had a new tree planted at our parents graves. I am unable to come to Florida in the immediate future but when I do get an opportunity to get there I will certainly thank you again in person. The tree means a lot to both of us for many reasons. Sincerely, D.W


Hello Murray and Rachel, Thank you so much for your professionalism during this very trying time. I was so pleased to see everything go like clockwork, even with the unanticipated minor bumps. Best Regards, M.B


Thank you for the forms, Murray. You guys are terrific. I continue to be impressed by how many good people we're inadvertently meeting during this otherwise heartbreaking experience. You have a great gift of helping folks like my mom, my sister and myself relax the Myriad of mixed emotions that come with this experience. Thank you for your service. My dad was a man of honor and integrity. Valued it. He would've enjoyed meeting you. Sincerely, B.P


Paula and Jack- Everything was lovely. Rabbi did great!! I sincerely appreciate all your efforts and caring Sincerely, L.L


Dear Murray - Just a note to tell you how much I appreciated how you handled all arrangements and provided advice and help during these trying times. You were there every step of the way. The funeral was handled in the way A. thought a funeral and the services should be. My family and I thank you.


Paula and Jack - Everything was lovely. Rabbi did great. I sincerely appreciate all your efforts and caring.


Dear Ed - I just wanted to take a few moments to thank you for all your help with my father's funeral. Your sensitive, caring demeanor made a very difficult time a little easier. I am very grateful for your support and friendship.


Hi Rachel, My family and I want to thank you so much for the terrific job you did in all respects. The materials you sent over were perfect and the service went fine. We also appreciate your having sent materials relative to Mom. We want to write the section head regarding the excellent performance of the military personnel who attended the event and presented military honors, Sgts. Villacreses and Lozano.


Dear Murry - My heartfelt thank you for making a most difficult time in my life almost pleasant. I appreciate you taking pride and care of each and every detail. J. would have loved seeing all his friends and family showing respect. Although he was a quite and gracious person. I will always remember our friendship and what an outstanding person you are.


Thank you for everything you did to make the day pass easier than it would have without you. We love you, Priscilla & Alan too!!!!


Michael. Great job done under trying circumstances for us.


Dear Mr. Blasberg: I wanted to bring your attention to one of your Funeral Directors - Mt. Rob Acosta. I am attaching a personal note I sent earlier today to thank him personally for his intervention and service. My father, J.Z., passed away on Saturday April 26th. Our family experienced some difficulty getting a meeting to plan my dad's funeral and on Monday we drove to North Miami Beach funeral home to ensure we could bury my father in time. Mr. Rob Acosta met us immediately - and it was clear that he was managing a large funeral at the time. Nonetheless, and with great care and dignity, he proceeded to help us through the necessary arrangements. Mr. Acosta managed the funeral the following day with the same level of decency and quite care: for that, we are profoundly grateful.


Dear Claire, On behalf of my family, I thank you for your help in making our mom's unveiling ceremony so lovely. Everything was set up, just as you assured us it would be. The canopy protected the elders from the sun and the chairs were well used. The kit with yarmulkas and stones was very helpful- everyone present used them. Several other family members are buried in the cemetery, and we also used the stones when we visited those grave sites. The memorial stone was lovely, too, and my Dad was very touched. I do not know the personnel structure of your organization, but I would hope you could email this note to whomever might wish to know how much your services helped our family. I know your skills and sensitivities are shared with all the families with whom you work.


Mr. Rubin, We the sisters and brothers of O.T. wish to express our sincere thank you for the very professional and lovely service which you rendered at the death of our brother O. Although we were hurting your assistance and caring touch helped to easy the tremendous loss which we experienced. We committed O's ashes to the earth on Thursday March 20th. Please extend to your staff our thanks.

The Famliy of O.T.

Michael - Wanted to thank you so much for all of your help and kindness yesterday. Truly your help was beyond anybody's wildest imagination and laying our dear friend to rest was a blessing for everyone. Thank you Michael.


Dear Michael: Thank you so much for your kindness in arranging and organizing the funeral for our father, step father and Zayde, L.M. We are so appreciative of how much compassion you showed and how attentive you were with all family members. You were a big help with the mausoleum too. You were a true source of comfort to all of us during those difficult days. We know this was a hard time for you too with the unexpected death of A.B. You handled everything beautifully. We are so very grateful.

The Family of L.M.

Hello Murray, Thank you for your care for our family in this difficult time. Thank you so much and God bless you for your care.


Hi Rachel, Thank you again for stopping by to deliver us Dad’s death certificates. Your support of our family, and that of your whole staff, is so extraordinary. We are all so appreciative.


Murray Thank you so very much for your courtesy, and thank you and Marc for being so super to my brother. He was a sweet guy and most of all was really a fabulous brother. I will miss him as I miss my parents. You and Marc deserve a very special place as you are very special people. I will always remember you.


Michael, I too wanted to take a moment to tell you how grateful we as a family were for your strength and guidance during a very difficult time. You'll always be remembered warmly when I think about my mother's service. It was beautiful.


Dear Murry - Thank you for making my mother's passing comfortable with dignity.


Dear Murray, I hope you are well. I wanted to extend my sincerest and deepest gratitude for all your help over the past week. While I feel tremendous loss in my life, I also find solace in knowing I was able to honor my mother to the best of my ability. You really helped me make that happen, and I will always remember your kindness, sensitivity, and aid. I wish you a great rest of the week and thank you from the bottom of my heart. All my best


Dear Murray, Thank you for serving us as if we were your family during this very difficult time. We appreciate your professionalism, fairness, honesty, availability and cooperativeness. We will always remember most of all your kindness and warmth!

I.B. April 04, 2013

Dear Murray: I want to extend my thanks and that of my family for your assistance in orchestrating on short notice the funeral for my late mother, F.S. I could not have asked for a better result.

A.S. April 02, 2013

Hello Murray, I just wanted to let you know that the funeral for S. C. in Boston went very well, and turned out to be a meaningful and positive experience. Your kindness and the follow-up in Boston by the Levine Chapel were all well-appreciated. All the logistics went smoothly, from the limousine service to the timely preparation for the service. All personnel were warm and supportive and accommodating. Even the weather cooperated. While we worried about rain or snow for the graveside service, the sun appeared for the hour or so of the service, as if on cue. We all commented that my mother was responsible for the brief sunshine, and that she certainly would have approved of the funeral. Thanks so much for your help in making it all go smoothly.

B.G. March 06, 2013

Dear Murray, Dianne and Todd - Thank you so very much for your kind card and thoughtful words. My brothers and I will be eternally grateful for the kindness shown us on our losses - both mom and pop. Warmly - C.

C. January 24, 2013

In the past 10 months, you are the only person I have the heart and strength to write to ... M., P. and I wish to express our heartfelt appreciation. This is not an easy note to write at this time, but we felt you deserved immediate accolades and kudos!! You took the most horrifying process children could go thru,and wound up with two dear friends for life,,,, your words will stay with me forever, "Everything we do is Right". Your professional guidance gave us courage, your compassion gave us strength .. The time spent on each detail was monumental, you never left out one thing, and truly paid attention to each and every desire to make a memorable difference for our parents. Loved the butterflies, cried from the baseball cards, and laughed from your rain hat!!! We could not imagine a better home for Mom and Dad to rest, then yours! May the future bring us peace, and joyful celebrations..... Love,

R.F. & P.R.
