"The coordination between Holy Comforter Catholic Church, Hill and Wood, and Memorial Gardens was impeccable. The family didn't have to worry about something not being handled. It was incredibly comforting to know that someone was taking care of the details the way we wanted them executed, and we were free to look after each other. The family is very grateful."

"Besides someone who answers the phone very pleasantly,) Linda was my only contact. I can not say enough INCREDIBLE things about her in so many ways. She was compassionate, knowledgeable, professional, and just a real human being. During all visits with her she was not only thoroughly devoted in providing the best service , but you can just feel how much her heart is in it. you inevitably share some stories about your loved one who passed and she just helped in the perfect way at all moments. Linda somehow helped me find a little beauty while burying my sweet son, which I could never have imagined possible."
