I know there are many people in the background, making things happen but I want highlight the fine service provided by Dan Campbell to our family last year upon the death of our Mom, Mary Murphy. I might have already send a thank you along but every time I'm on your site I just want to thank Dan for everything he did for us and continues to do for others. From greeting us at the home with such grace and kindness and introducing us to the salon where our Mom lay. When I saw her beautiful face returned to her in death, a miracle, just our beautiful Mom, thank you Dan! That made our mourning so much easier, especially for our children & grandchildren, seeing their grandmother & great-grandmother, the way they remembered her the last time she was with them, so peaceful. I will be forever thankful, our family will be forever thankful to Dooley's. God bless you in your special work Dan, you are a gifted funeral director and a true friend to relatives morning their loved ones.

Sending my condolences and prayers To Brenda's family. I graduated with Brenda from St.Marthas School of Nursing. Brenda was always smiling,happy and up for a joke.Brenda was a caring and compassionate Nurse who loved life..The girls as Brenda referred us met a few times over the course of our career to have a drink and reminisce. Brenda is a beautiful soul who I always will remember. RIP

My deepest sympathy goes out to all of your family at the loss of your beautiful mom..
Jean was an inspiration to all who knew her. My family members spoke of her with so much respect and the stories of how she welcomed everyone into her home was well know within their community of friends. I’m currently spending the winter in Florida and so regretfully will not be able to attend the services. However please be assured my thoughts and prayers are with you all..

We were saddened to read of Cousin Lorette's passing. I have many fond memories of visiting her and Lou when I was young. Although my father and Lorette were cousins, the families were good friends. My heart is saddened today with her loss. Always lots of fun and the deck of cards is waiting in heaven for another game.

Peter, Eileen, Dan and Michael
I am having a hard time finding the right words to thank you all so much for the help you gave us when my dad, (Alfred Landry) passed away suddenly in December. It was such a shock as it was not expected.... but the love, care and respect you showed both my father and our family was beyond outstanding.
Peter, you were so kind and caring with each phone call you made. It put all of us at great ease. The support you gave us when we were finalizing the arrangements displayed the compassion you have for others . You have a gentle way with people and I know it made my mom so happy to have dad in your care.
God bless you all for the work you do . It's takes very special people to dedicate themselves to helping others in such time of loss and sadness. We are all very grateful and blessed to have you at the helm of the funeral home.
You make an amazing team. May God bless each and everyone of you <3

I remember when we all gathered at Emily's for a get together with family and friends - it didn't take long before someone brought out a fiddle, or a mouth organ, or start playing the spoons. Emily was at her best when she was entertaining!. Food, fun, singing along to the music was the norm at Em's 'dos'.... My memories of her kindness still warm my heart. God Bless You Em...

I met Howard back in the 70s when I was branch manager for a company in Sydney. I've been at Hawards home and enjoyed the Christian fellowship we had. I've been looking for him a number of times and find out he is in Halifax when I live in Dartmouth. My wife and I send our sympathy to wife and family. Please keep in contact with us through my email

Dan and the Dooley team,
Our sincere thanks for the exceptional way in which you cared for our Mom, Mary Murphy. The respect your company has for the deceased was evident from the day you, Dan, walked into my Mom's hospital room, you immediately put our family at ease because of your warmth and compassion. When we entered your funeral home the first day we were all overjoyed to see the transformation of our beautiful Mom back to as we all want to remember her. Thank you does not seem enough, you went above and beyond to ensure our needs were met throughout. God bless you remarkable people for everything you do for beareaved families, God has given you special gifts, thank you for using them so wisely. North Sydney and the surrounding communities are blessed to have you as their funeral directors and friends.
