  • Dear Brad, I am writing to compliment one of the employees at Memorial Park Cemetery. I grew up in Memphis and have been visiting this cemetery since my Grandfather was buried there in 1960. My Dad is now buried there, W. R., Jr. and I live out of state in Charlotte, NC. I ordered flowers for his birthday recently and they arrived on August 7th in the office. A very kind gentleman took them immediately to the grave and very tenderly placed them in the vase as well as cleaned the marker. The reason I know this is an amazing story to me. I have a dear friend who happened to be visiting family in Memphis and went to my Dad's grave. She just "happened" to arrive at his grave as he was delivering the flowers. She took a video on her cell phone recording the whole process. They had a nice conversation and she shared the story with him of how we were dear friends, and since I couldn't visit his grave, she would go in my absence. As she was sharing this story and video with me, both of us were moved to tears, not only from our own emotion but also for the kindness and care this employee showed to her. He treated the delivery of the flowers and cleaning of the marker with such care. This gentleman is to be commended for his fine work and for the concern and care he gives to his work. I hope it will be possible to know who delivered these flowers to my Dad's grave and had the nice conversation with my friend.
  • Dear Mr. Farmer - Thank you so much for the most professional manner and warmth on which you displayed while helping me and my children plan my wife J. S's funeral service. It was most obvious you intended everything concerning this affair be perfect and it was. The manner in which you handled the financial part of our meeting was through and to the point. Through my wife's passing brings me much sadness, I was uplifted by my experience with you. Mr. Farmer and all the staff at Memorial Park.
  • Dear Michael and Memorial Park Staff - Thank you for the beautiful red rose you sent to N.'s visitation. We want to thank you for helping us plan and arrange everything for visitation and the funeral. You and your staff were so kind and comforting to us in our time of great grief.

  • Dear Bradley Kraft - Thank you for your help upon L. W.'s ceremony.
  • Mr. Renfro & Mr. Kraft, On behalf of the Metro Nashville Police Department, we would like to thank you both for the wonderful service Memorial Park provided to our department and especially to the family of our fallen officer, Michael Petrina. Your staff went above and beyond to assist us with not only planning, but with providing room for us to work and plan in the funeral home! This extremely difficult situation was made so much better because of the staff that you have in place. From the first moment we met Mr. Micheal Gramling in Nashville to bring Officer Petrina home, we were treated like family. Your entire staff was unbelievable to us, and speaking of your staff, Hannah Richards was nothing less than a Godsend! She was an invaluable resource to us and she made herself personally available to us all week. From her contacts with the police departments and fire departments to the way she assisted the family with their every request, she deserves to be commended. She is a true asset to your team. Thank you both so much for creating such a positive workplace in such an unusual place. If we can ever be of assistance to you here in Nashville, please let us know. Thanks!

  • To the Staff of Memorial Park Funeral Home and Cemetery - Once again ( and forevermore) I'm saying thank you. This time for your generosity toward our family during "M's" celebration service. Your donation in her memory was unexpected as you had already gone above and beyond... Yet, deeply appreciated. When my father and my husbands parents and grandparents were buried at M.P. many years ago our families were impressed by the condolences we received there and now this gift continues.
