Hey Greg, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for all you did to make my Dad's service very special and meaningful. While it was a sad and stressful time you and your staff made things bearable and memorable for my family. Dad looked very good considering the condition he was in. Thanks for everything. It was top notch.

“I am writing this with complete and total admiration for David Goebel and the staff at Graceland Fairlawn Funeral Home. After tragically losing my husband on May 19th, 2021, David and his staff quickly came to my side to assist me with the process of planning a funeral that I had never thought about. Since my husband was only 44 years old, I thought we had plenty of time ahead to figure these things out. Unfortunately, my husband was a police officer who had suffered a gunshot wound to his head. I was mortified at the thought that our girls would not be able to see him one more time before saying goodbye. The staff at Graceland Fairlawn made my husband look wonderful. Our girls and immediate family were able to say goodbye in the way they deserved. The funeral was phenomenal and the graveside services were like none I had ever experienced before. David continues to guide me through the process and has provided us with many nice ways of remembering Chris along the way. He has provided superior service with a professional demeanor and genuine care. I am indebted to Graceland Fairlawn for everything that they have done for my husband and our family. I would make a strong recommendation to use their service above any other. ”

“Today we lost our beloved cat Nova. We came to Graceland looking to memorialize our pet with a service I don't think they normally provide. The front office staff was more than accomodating to our request and turned us toward a man named Don. Don not only fulfilled our request, but did it in a way that allowed the grieving process to be easier. Thank You Don! ”

I have known John his entire life and he is a a wonderful person , its very obvious he enjoys helping people in their time of need. He was/is a blessing to our family. Thanks to him and his wonderful staff! ”

“I cannot express how appreciative I am to your staff that assisted with my Mom's arrangements and was their to support us throughout the entire process. Starting with picking her up from our home, they are so respectful and caring. Our family has known Bruce for years and he there for us the entire time. When we went to make arrangements Greg Pike assisted us and was very knowledgeable, also with Bruce and Amy (both I received such great support when my Mother-in-Law passed in Nov 2019, Amy has called and checked on me a couple of times and it means so much to know you are not forgotten). The night of the visitation your staff was more than amazing taking care of us and our family and friends. My Mom was the sweetest our visitations ended up being 4 to 4 1/2 hours with people standing for hours in line. Bruce made sure the older visitors were brought inside and sit down in the room or brought up front immediately, which I truly appreciated. Pat and Mike both were great a being there for us and our family, Pat said she asked to work my Mom's services cause she thought she was the sweetest lady, even tho she didn't know her personally she seen over the years at many services. All of these people made our hard time so much easier, I can't say enough greatness about them all and what a valuable asset they are to your business. Thank you again for all of your excellent staff and their thoughtfulness and caring, please let them all know how special they are and made us feel. Thanks for making my Mom so beautiful and taking such good care of her. Thanks and love to you all, Tonia Jones Janet Brozio's daughter”

“I had the most wonderful chat with Chandler Jones as we went over the transfer of a preplanned policy to Graceland Fairlawn from a funeral home in Michigan. During the time I spent with Chandler, I found a truly caring young man. We shared family stories, and became unexpected friends. He had recently lost his beloved Grandmother and I think our conversation helped him through a little of his sadness. I know that my family will be well taken care of, when I someday pass and they have to make final arrangements with his help. Jean Maggioncalda”

“My family and i would like to thank the Graceland Fairlawn staff for helping us with the arrangements for my mother Patricia Hunters' passing. We worked very closely with Dustin Bradshaw and Kevin King and they walked us thru every step and we were extremely pleased at how smoothly everything went. They were both very professional and went above and beyond to make our experience as easy as possible.”
