  • I can't say enough about how helpful everyone was during this difficult time. The only suggestions would be to encourage young adults to save money for unexpected situations like a death. I was very overwhelmed having to pay for my sisters funeral on 3 credit cards.
  • To Whom it may Concern - I recently, and quite unexpectedly I found myself in Memphis. As I have relatives and very close family friend at Memorial Park, I , on the spur of the moment stopped in. Not sure that I could find who I'd be looking for, especially the family friend, I was most graciously greeted and helped by your staff members. First a thin you man out outside, then Ms Patrick in the office, and was escorted to the correct locations by a gentleman named Raoul I believe. I really wanted to say thanks to Memorial Park and these Staff Members for their helpfulness and kindness.
  • Thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers during this time. We appreciate your support and encouragement in our time of need. God Bless you and your families.
    The Family of H.R.
  • Dear Mr. Farmer and Staff - My Family and I would like to express our gratitude for the preparations made with regard to our loved one's funeral. The limo service which picked us up at our home and the police escort were so special and touching. We greatly appreciate what you did to make that possible.
  • Dear Memorial Park Team - I am writing one note to all of you, because all of you ( many I do not know names) made the experience of handling my mother's death a much easier one that I ever could have expected. From the time we called, your preparedness with her information, your compassion, your flexibility, your availability, your knowledge and expertise, you attention to detail, your willingness to accommodate and your follow up for many months after her funeral was all outstanding. I can not imagine a better group of people any where else. My siblings and I thank you for serving us so well.
  • Thank each of you for all your help with the service. I thought everything was fine and she looked so pretty. She is finally at peace and so happy so I have to be too.
  • Dear Jay - Thank you. That says it all, yet it doesn't seem to be quite enough. Our family appreciated your support and extra efforts more than you can know. I also thank you and shall treasure the US Navy coin you gave me to honor my father. Your attention to detail is what sets you apart. We will be in touch with you in the very near future. Thank you again for everything.
  • Terry, thank you for your patience and diligence during the preparation and culmination of our mom's memorial service. Your are an asset to your profession and a blessing to us.
    The N family
  • Brad, Terry, other - Just a quick word of thanks for your assistance with my mom's service. We wanted simple and elegant and that worked beautifully. May God bless you as your work with families at difficult times.
  • 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.
