Real Stories from Real People

I want to thank Bryan from the groundskeeping dept for his thoughtfulness in taking care of my husbands grave sight (Eastlake area). He has gone above and beyond maintaining our grave-sight without being asked as he understands the importance of visiting a love one who’s passed. Thank you Bryan for all you do. Our family appreciates it!

Yesterday I came to visit my great-grandfather's grave (O.C). You looked up the location, but also Diane took us there. In addition, she noted needed repairs to his wife's gravestone, and then she encouraged us to visit the U.S. Grant, Jr gravesite. He married a C; news to us. Thanks for everything D.C

“God places Angels along the way. This road was challenging to walk, and I want to thank Alma Magarro for her outstanding, compassionate, and caring way of taking care of all the details in purchasing my loved one's resting place. She went above and beyond providing this service and other services on the mortuary side. She made sure all my questions were answered promptly, always with sensitivity and respect. Greenwood will benefit greatly to hire more persons like Alma and not salespeople. After all, the sale will happen undoubtedly. With great appreciation. Norma”

“My husband and I have extensive experience working at Greenwood and other SCI mortuaries. None of that experience matters when you lose someone close to you. I don't know how my family and I would have made it through without our Arranger Cedric Porter. My brother was young when we lost him. So, I had to be the rock for my devastated mother and older sister. We were met right away with some family tension with family we hadn't spoken to in many years. The level of stress we underwent at a time we felt we should only be grieving was comparable to a tsunami. Cedric acted more like a family counselor and knew how to talk to both sides using the most perfect demeaner and choice of words. Although he is young, his maturity level seemed to surpass everyone in the room. As it turned out, just a little communication and understanding was all our family needed to bury my brother together as a family. I'm not sure if funeral arrangers are trained to also mend old family wounds and help everyone relate to one another but, I do know people. You cannot train someone to relate to others in distress as well as Cedric did. That has to come from his natural ability to genuinely care and relate to people from all walks of life. All I can say is that I hope the company pays him for his worth. I can't put a price tag on what he did for me and my family. Because of him, we were able to have the perfect ceremony for my brother even with the COVID-19 guidelines. Thank you Cedric for everything you did. In addition I would also like to give a special thanks for Yvette Lynch. She helped us pick a forever home for my brother to rest for eternity. Although we believe his spirit is with God, it made it no less important that we picked the perfect place to rest his body for eternity. Yvette took her time and used the most perfect words to make us feel like she valued the care of my brother. She constantly reassured us that he was going to be well taken care of. She did not rush the process and met with us for hours and multiple days as we struggled to pick the perfect spot. Without hesitance she took us to revisit the same spots repeatedly. She was available to us for questions far outside operating hours. I feel like our family was offered the best service in the industry. Let me not leave out our wonderful Funeral Director Patty. Not only do I feel like you were the perfect director for our family, you went over and beyond helping us with last minute arrangements. Together these people made my brothers service everything we could have hoped for. We are eternally grateful.”

“My fathers funeral occured during covid pandemic. The funeral attendants Mr. Frederick Smith and Ms. Patty Allen following state regulations, were the MOST efficient and courteous greeters /assistants. Both of them are a great team, it is very easy to see they have tremendous respect for the job they do. Their vibe and manner in which they conducted from beginning to end with every "walk-thru" guest; checking temperatures and explaining the modified guidelines for the viewing etc is comendable. It made the whole experience of my dads funeral a lot better than what we had imagined. At the very end as the coffin was closed, Ms Patty was tremendously respectful of my dad in the casket. As a result of their assistance, we felt safe, at peace, content at the end of a verynsad day. Thank YOU Mr Frederick and Ms Patty.”

“Today my nephew and I we're here visiting my parents gravesite. We needed water for flowers and tried 3 faucets, but none had water! A very nice man pulled up in a truck and asked if we needed help. He personally went and got us a big bucket water and helped us fill the urns. His name is MARIO DURAN. He is such a kind and helpful person. I thought you should know what an asset he is to your company!!! Please thank him for us and the whole V. family.”
