    For anyone losing a loved one, it is difficult, and then making final arrangements can be heart wrenching. However, Tom was patient, kind and understanding. All was perfect and professionally handled. May every family find what we did with ya'll. Cannot please all the people all the time, but know how much it meant to our entire family with what you did so beautifully for us! Read more

  • Donna Fontaine

    Don made this tremendously sad time bearable for us. He treated our family with compassion and he and his staff explained our options, guided us through the process and allowed us to carry out our mothers wishes. They were there at the church to take care of us. They treated my mother with respect from the pick up of her body in the middle of the night, to discussions about her dress and the placement of floral arrangements to answering any and all questions we had. I live in Ohio and plan to donate my body to science, but I would definately recommend Osceola Memory Gardens to anyone in need. Ask for Don!I feel as if Don and his associates became a part of our family. Read more
