  • Bill - thank you so much for everything, you made me laugh and joke around and made everything as easy as you could. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  • Dear Chelsea, Your e-mail of March 20th was/is most appreciated. I had hoped to acknowledge it sooner than this but other matters intervened and I am only now able to concentrate on the response it deserves. It was extremely kind of you to write, as was your having said those words for us all at J's interment. Your presence and participation in that interment made it that much more reassuring to J, J's friends, and to me. From the start, you have been all J. or I could have wished, not only professional but genuinely caring. I have nothing but praise for you and it is well-deserved praise. When I was sixteen I spent the summer with my uncle who was a funeral director in Delaware. That experience taught me about high professional standards, personal integrity, and generosity of spirit. My uncle embodied them all. So do you.

  • Dear Chelsea, I am not usually at a loss for words but on receiving your latest e-mail I find it difficult to express my gratitude except to say a heartfelt thank you for your generosity of spirit. Sincerely

  • So it’s a go on the monument. I showed several people/family too and they all thought it looked great. I’m so thankful for you, Shannon and John B for working so closely with me and helping me thru all this. All the staff that helped at the visitation and the service were just so professional and kind. Also Mikey for all his part in this, he does really nice work, and the 2 ladies at Moran’s that listened to me a few times while I waited for Mikey. I really appreciated everything and everyone so much. I’m glad I chose Graceland/Fairlawn as the final resting place for M. and some day me. It’s been kinda weird to see my name on a monument and pick all this stuff out, but now it’s done and my child won’t have to worry. Thanks again.

  • Patrick has been a delight in his service by him. Why? He displayed the following qualities: 1. a genuine love for people 2. somewhat a perfectionist in a good way ( very detailed and exploratory) 3. persistent in a good and kind way 4. a good listener and shows empathy.

  • Dear Shannon - thank you so much for all your kindness and help in making arrangements for my brother K's wide, M.S. This was a difficult time for our family and your compassion and thoughtfulness was greatly appreciated. M. loved flowers and i believe she looked down, saw the 2 beautiful arrangements and i know she had the biggest smile on her face when she saw them and was so delighted with them.

  • It is with heartfelt thanks to you and your staff for all you did for the families of J. U.C.. In the process of collecting monies for the arrangements, the family received the call from you that Graceland/Fairlawn was taking care of all of everything at no cost to the family. God is truly awesome and so are you! The beautiful video will be a lasting memorial to be cherished always. Thank you again and God bless each one of you.
