Review Us

Words cannot express our gratitude for the compassionate, gentle care, respect, and dignity with which you treated our mother when she was transported from Avante nursing home to your funeral home on the night of her passing. She was handled in the most precious and respectful way from the start to the very end. What will forever stick out in our minds is how the wonderful lady, who attended to the transport of our mother's body, so gently enclosed her in the lovely cloth casing and so gently and quietly closed the zipper. Please express to her our most heartfelt gratitude for the flawless execution of the utmost dignified illustration of respect as the very last act upon my mother's person. She gave us her name, but our minds were preoccupied with the onslaught of emotion and sorrow, but I want to say it was Elizabeth. Regardless of her name, her gentility and respect left a never ending impression that gave us peace and eased some of the sorrow we now endure and for that we are forever grateful. We would also like to thank you for the rose and card given to my father; it really meant so much to him in· this time of sorrow. If two words can express these feelings, then thank you for all you have done. We are eternally grateful.

Don and Linda were wonderful on Saturday with friends and family members.

It was a memorable day!!

Vivian Lugo Passela

Robert was awesome answering our questions and with the service he provided. The attention of the staff and coordination meant the most to me. Keep up the good work!

Amanda Celis

Everything was thought of to help me make good decisions with the director. The lady that provided the death certificates was truly a caring person and offered to help with confusing paperwork. The CD was outstanding and the director cared enough to remove his bandages for me. It meant A LOT. The flag on my husband during cremation was especially nice. I'm satisfied with all the caring that the staff showed to our family.

Shirley Bruce

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!

Deborah Massie

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.

We would especially like to thank Mr. Don (director) and Roxann who fond themselves caught in the middle of an otherwise smooth process. You both kept your professionalism upfront and corresponded with all involved. In the end, Mom was able to get her last wish which was cremation.

Nereida Moyet

Mom died back in November and I just today took the time to look at her obituary and comments people left on your website. What a beautiful website you have set up for the obituaries. I was able to read all the wonderful comments but also view the video from her funeral. How precious to see these memories once again. Thank you again for your wonderful handling of mom's (and also dad's in 2011) funeral. Our whole family really appreciates all you did.

The service was EVERYTHING we, as a family, could possibly have hoped for....everything Dawn SO DESERVED - and YOU, played a HUGE part in that....and for THAT - I will be FOREVER grateful to you.

Excellent service from the time I made my first telephone call to the time my mother was transferred to Switzerland. Tom Dorsey was extraordinary, making sure all the transfers to Switzerland were in order, very efficient and professional. Called after mo mother had been transferred to make sure everything went right!

Hector Santiago

I have known Tom Dorsey for many years and regard him in high esteem. Chrissy was so attentive and kind, made the decisions so relaxing, took a lot off my shoulders during my grief. What meant most was the kindness and professionalism and doing the leg work to get the documents signed. Everything was outstanding. Keep doing exactly the same.

Tom, I want to tell you what a wonderful job your team did with regard to my step-dad, Robert Miller. We have heard comments, from so many, related to how beautiful the entire service was. I can’t say enough good thing about Tom and the way he guided the family through a process very foreign to us. Top notch professionalism… he was never pushy and made difficult decisions less so. On behalf of my entire family please accept my gratitude in taking my Bobsy on his final journey… first class!
