“Just a short note to say "thank you" from the Morrison Family for your help with our Dad's service! My dad, Glenn Morrison was a proud WWII veteran and he wanted the full military service and your Resthaven staff helped me put this all together for him. Haley was incredible to work with and was there for every need and she answered her phone every time I called her for anything. We had the actual Navy Honor Guard for the flag presentation and taps, the local honor guard for the 21 Gun salute and the bagpipes for Amazing Grace. It was a great celebration of a live well lived and I know Dad was proud of his final send off! Thank you Haley, Holli and Dewayne for your help and hospitality and the sincere care in helping us make it a great day! God Bless! Brett Morrison”

“We were very impressed with how easy your staff made such a terrible time for us with the loss of my mom. You took extra time and care to help us find a special resting place in the gardens, and you took special care to see that her obituary was perfect. The funeral was beautiful. It was set up so perfect - I wish my mom could have seen it herself. The staff during the service were very nice and professional, also. We were helped loading up the things we were taking home, and one gentleman even suggested we take a couple of flowers from the casket spray to press as a memento. Also, even thinking back to the day Mom passed away, the two gentlemen who came to take her to the funeral home were especially consoling to me, my dad and my family. My family could not afford an expensive funeral and you helped us put together what we could afford and treated us like gold during the whole process. We were very well cared for and it was a very beautiful funeral that Mom would have been proud of.”
