We are proud to announce that Brian R. Folsom recently earned his funeral director’s license. Brian passed the National Board Exam and the Massachusetts Board Exam and was sworn in as a funeral director in June of 2011. Since then he has continued to upgrade his licenses. Congrats Brian!
We are pleased to announce some of the projects we have recently completed. Our Westwood office has undergone a complete exterior make-over. We have planted new rhodedendron bushes at the back of our lot and a new crabapple tree with accompanying holly bushes near the back of the building. They partially block the view of our new air conditioning units. A new irrigation systems is helping to keep the front lawn and plantings alive and healthy. We have replaced the stone wall along the driveway and installed a new stone wall further up the driveway to create terraces with accompanying landscaping. We have also replaced the plain solid metal flower room door with a glass panelled entry door. Finally, we have redecorated the interior of the Westwood Chapel with new paint, chair-rails, and improved lighting.
In our Norwood Office we recently replaced the rear entry stairway and the front stairway was replaced with brick and granite stairs. We also updated our exterior parking lot lights and exterior accent lighting. A beautiful new sign and lighting was installed in the front yard this spring that reads “Folsom & May Funeral Home” and closely resembles our signage at our other locations.
Our Roslindale facility has had the most upgrades throughout 2013. We started by replacing our exterior sign with a new sign from Sign Language Signs, that matches our signs in Westwood and Dedham. All new exterior lighting was installed to illuminate the sign, and to brighten the whole front of the building. The interior also saw extensive renovations. New encasements, chair rails, and baseboards were added to our main visitation rooms, while the walls and doors were painted to lighten the area, creating a more calming living room feel.
Our Dedham office saw improvements to our parking lot. Repairs were made to our pavement and drainage. A new all granite staircase was added to the entrance off of our parking lot into the flower room. We were very happy to increase the comfort level of our families with the complete replacement of our old air conditioning system. Our new system is sure to keep everyone cool at the largest gatherings on the hottest days of summer.
A new sign for our Dedham Funeral Home has been installed. The carved composite sign is black and grey with gold lettering and is mounted on granite post with wrought iron hangers. It matches the entrance and exit signs located by each driveway. We were forced to remove the maple tree that graced our front circle for the past 20 years. It was diseased, and could not be saved. We wish to thank Sign Language of Norwood for the design, construction, and installation of the signage in both our Westwood and Dedham locations.
