The Greenlawn establishment went along with my mom's wishes. I feel so good, and I feel it is a home, it is a family, and all of you work so united for the customers. You have a sympathetic heart because the customer is already gone, but the family carries on, and they are left with beautiful memories ... I would give you 10 stars.

“Michelle was excellent, and we were very pleased, and she was very easy to work with. I will say we had purchased our interment plan some time ago, which makes the inevitable so much easier. And with all details done, there were not too many decisions to be made. That is a very smart thing to do, not that we are any smarter than anyone else … I have nothing but kudos to her for taking care of us and making an emotional situation better for us. I'm telling my friends that they should inquire about prepaying the costs. I know people don't like to think about that, but it makes it so much easier for your loved ones if the details are taken care of … It is a sorrowful situation and it's stressful and emotional, but having arrangements already paid for, I can't recommend that enough.”

Gail July 17, 2015

Marion March 30, 2015

“Ron is wonderful. He's really good. I could not have asked for anyone nicer to take care of us. He's been right there for us. He doesn't push, he doesn't oversell, and he's not high pressure.
