“The staff at Gethsemane Cemetery was very helpful in explaining the procedures and costs up front. During a difficult time like this, it was a relief to know that we were working with very organized and professional staff. Tim was especially helpful and led us through the process.”

“The cemetery is a very welcoming, peaceful, sincere and loving cemetery. I am glad my dad’s final resting place is just that. It is very well kept and I would recommend this a peaceful resting place. Thank you so much for all of the sincere efforts put forth by your facility and staff in making my dad’s memorial services as sincere as they could be at a difficult time.”

“This experience was not exactly a pleasant one. However, Larry was “exceptional” by his: thoroughness, his knowledge, his expertise, patient and certainly his cordial attitude. We found it very easy to handle this chore, primarily due to his total involvement.”

“The weather on the day of burial was terrible (snow and high winds). Since it was not safe for a tent, they arranged for the committal service to be in the mausoleum which was more than expected. We appreciated this very much.”

“This is a very difficult time in our lives; Mike handled our situation with care. He showed empathy and kindness during our first meeting, at the time of our little boy’s funeral, and after. I have been to the cemetery every day since May 9th; all of the groundskeepers are pleasant. I will recognize Perry. He introduced himself to me and helped me understand where I could plant flowers. He also offered to help me clean old flowers. Everyone is very kind.”

“Mike was excellent. Earlier today when I called the office I appreciated that Karen remembered my name when transferring me to Mike. It meant a lot to me that Mike was present, kind and respectful at my dad’s graveside ceremony. His commitment to good work, compassion, and service excellence shines right through. Thank you, Mike.”
