"If I could give Funeral Director Claude a 100/10 I would. He made the whole process simple, easy, and painless while I was under the most stress and heartache I've ever experienced in my life. Every question was quickly answered and every need met."

"I was amazed at how Cindy listened to what I wanted and did not apply any pressure. She fulfilled her obligatory duties and did show me the different options that were available in each are, but truly and honestly applied no pressure. When it was an item I had already informed her that we were not interested, she merely confirmed that we wanted to decline that particular item and moved on to the next item. I was very impressed as this has not been my experience at other funeral homes."

"Claude Akamafula was outstanding in every way. He was kind, efficient, caring, organized and extremely hardworking. His follow-up phone calls were very helpful. We thought the receptionist was lovely, organized and very professional each time that we were at your facility. Thank you for such a positive experience at such a stressful time of losing a loved one."

"I had never had to deal with a loved one passing away and everything involved with that and my heart was broken over my sister's death. A friend gave me Garden Oaks phone number and I was blessed to have Cindy Pineda and her crew step in and make sure all details were done with the utmost kind professionalism. With my approval they took care of everything. I cannot say enough how the care I received from Cindy Pineda and her crew was always so kind, courteous, respectful and very patient. I truly felt the love and compassion Cindy and crew, including sweetheart Thelma, showed to me was absolutely genuine. I will always recommend Garden Oaks to my family and friends. Many thanks."
