Father Joe Giaccobe, a friend of the Moran family performed Moran's funeral. Parish priest Father Joe Martins said of Moran during the service, "Any funeral presents a challenge. Obviously, the church does not make judgments about the person. They need the prayers and whatever the church can do for them," he said. "They have to answer to God. We will not deny them.".
