A longtime Harlem business and city landmark has changed hands.
Darron Starling, former owner of Starling Funeral Home, retired after serving Harlem families for 30 years.
“It’s hard to let go,” said Starling, who sold the business earlier this year.
Starling took over the former Prather Funeral Home on West Milledgeville Road in 1984. He restored the historic home and along with his wife, Brenda, ran it as Starling Funeral Home for three decades.
It’s the families he’s served through the years that he’ll miss, he said.
