Ordering flowers from our site ensures that your order will reach us or the family in a timely manner, and your gesture of support will remain acknowledged in the Book of Memories for future generations. We only work with local florists so we can maintain the sense of urgency and quality of your selections. We thank you for helping to support the family during their time of need, and will fondly remember your kind gesture.
Lulu, a golden doodle, our newest staff member came to our Dutchess County funeral home organization by way of Florida and has been trained for duty as our official Therapy Dog. Affectionately called the firm’s “Comfort Companion,” Lulu follows the lead of service dogs often used in health care settings, such as hospitals and nursing homes, and provides families with unconditional love and support, as well as a subtle distraction from their grief. A fixture in our funeral homes, Lulu is often seen lounging around the office and is only introduced to families upon their request. Although extremely friendly and very outgoing, the staff of Libby Funeral & Cremation Services is quick to offer treats to any visitor who may want to play with her. Lulu will gladly take up her post in the main hallway of the home and welcome visitors in.
Always known for thinking “outside of the box,” Libby Funeral & Cremation Services is the only firm in Dutchess County to have a “Comfort Dog” on staff. Lulu found a special niche at the funeral home where she soothes grieving families with her calming presence. The funeral home does everything within its capabilities to make its facilities warm and comforting – we’re not your typical funeral home. Outside of her duties, Lulu is a cheerful family dog, and loves cuddling with her family at home, going for walks, and playing in the yard.
