Dear Mr. Cooley,
Thank you so much for the generous donation of the materials and labor it took to install the stone that is now part of our "Micah Memorial". The stone design is a beautiful tribute to Micah and I'm sure it will be read by hundreds of people in the coming years. The students, staff members and parents who are part of our Glenwood community sincerely appreciate your generosity.
Jack and I would like to thank you for your attention to detail and thoughtfullness while creating Michael's memorial. Your care and understanding during the process are the best we've experienced.
Again, thank you for everything.
Dear Sir, Dealing with you and your company was so pleasant. The marker you made for our mother, that matched all of the other Kennedy markers at St. Peter and Paul Cemetery was done to perfection. It was a far different experience than the ones we have had with Hoar Memorials in Elmira, NY. For this we are so very appreciative. Though we were not severely grief stricken over our mother’s death - She was 95 ready to go and had had a truly wonderful life - We still appreciated your tender caring demeanor. And we could see how helpful and welcoming it would be to a family who was feeling sad because of their loss. Thank you so much for all you did.
Dear Mr. Cooley, Thank you for all your help during a very difficult time. Your gentle approach to such a delicate but necessary task, was greatly appreciated. The monument is more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Your character and workmanship are of the highest quality and I will always recommend you. With Sincere Thanks.
David, I was home over the weekend and saw our beautiful headstone, it came out better than we could have ever expected! Thank you so much!
Mr. Cooley, Just a few words to thank you for the wonderful work you did on Bill's stone. I am so pleased and grateful for the kindness you showed me.

Dear David, Just a note to thank you again, not only for the monument - which is fabulous - but for your warm, caring and kind demeanor throughout the process. You made a difference!
Just as Rock of Ages is the gold standard in monuments, you more than equal your product with your professionalism and personality.
Our family all stopped by the cemetery this evening to see our monument. It is so beautiful! You did a terrific job. My family and I were very pleased with the finished job. Thank you for being so pleasant and helpful to us. I will recommend you to others whenever I can.
Thank you again David.
It was a distinct pleasure meeting Mr. Cooley. The world could use more people like him!
Your area representative, David Cooley, made this purchase a "piece of cake," to use the vernacular. He listened attentively to my requirements and implemented them fully without any high pressure to stray from them. A thoroughly enjoyable business experience.
Thank you very much for your help, suggestions and patience. The monument is wonderful and my family and I are very pleased and appreciative.

We were very satisfied with Binghamton-Johnson City Monument Company. David Cooley was very helpful and very professional. We would recommend him to anyone who needed his service.
David Cooley was very helpful, compassionate and took the time to listen to myself and my childrens' ideas. He delivered a the time he said he would. I hope I dont have to do this again for any reason, but if I do, I won't hesitate to seek his advice. Thank you very much.
...I might add my comment about the monument which you have already installed. In my opionion, this is one of the best monuments I have seen come into our cemetery during the time I have worked here since 1990. The quality, lettering and art work are outstanding.
I just wanted to let you know how absolutely pleased we are with the monument. It is so beautiful. Our family is thrilled.
Andy is very happy, he loves the fact that the top is different than all the rest, it stands out and can be seen so well from the road. We planted sweetheart roses and grass so it finally is presentable.
And of course, I know that Andrew is pleased, he was a pretty fussy guy, only liked the best and everything had to be perfect, and that is what our memorial is, just perfect.
Dave, you are not only a master of your trade but a genuinely compassionate and caring person. You are so well suited to what you do. I tell everyone where we went and will always recommend you highly. If you ever need a reference, verbal or written, do not hesitate to contact me.
Initially I dreaded doing this "final" thing for Andrew, but it was nothing but a positive experience. We so much appreciate all you've done, the calls, getting it installed as soon as it was ready. You are a great person, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Stay well and enjoy your family. Keep helping others to get through these difficult situations and decisions that need to be made.

The choosing of a monument or speaking of our demise is a serious and solemn endevor. However, your warmth and friendliness made it a pleasurable experience. Also, your knowledge and advice during the process was most appreciated. You are not just a businessman but a humanitarian, as well.
