For Immediate Release


AUSTIN, TEXAS, APRIL 29, 2015 – The International Order of the Golden Rule (OGR) presented the Exemplary Service Award to Schuyler Hill Funeral Home, Bronx, NY  during the Awards Luncheon at OGR’s 2015 Annual Conference and Supplier Showcase at the Marriott World Center in Orlando, FL on April 25. OGR’s Exemplary Service Award recognizes member firms for their outstanding customer service.

Exemplary Service awards recognize professional excellence as demonstrated through comments from client families served who respond to Family Contact Program surveys. One family who used Schuyler Hill Funeral Home shared the following:

“My father passed away and his wishes were to have his funeral with Schulyer. From the moment I entered Schulyer Hill, I felt a sense of peace. I needed proof of my father’s military service so that he could be buried with Military Honor, so the funeral home worked diligently to get the necessary documents so that my father would be buried with Military Honors. They were also emotionally supportive and took a lot of the burden away from me.  I now realize why my family always chose Schulyer Hill Funeral Home for the funeral arrangements any time a family member passed away. This truly shows the exemplary service Schuyler Hill Funeral Home provided to one family, and I’m sure many of the others they served.

 “The service that Schuyler Hill Funeral Home provided is just one example of why they received an Exemplary Service Award. We are proud that our member firms practice the basis on which we were founded; The Golden Rule,” said outgoing OGR President Bud Weting.
