Brian’s commitment to Skyway Memory Gardens is personal as his young daughter Brittany, who lost her battle with cancer is interred at our sister cemetery Sunset Memory Gardens. In 2016, he lost his 27-year-old son Stephen as well, who is also interred at Sunset. Brian has turned his adversities in life to fuel his unwavering desire to help families going through loss.

Kimberly R. Meyers-Jamison began her career in the funeral industry in 2009 after losing seven close family members and friends. After witnessing some beautiful funerals and some terrible ones, she realized that she could make a difference and ensure that everyone receive the funeral they deserve. Kim truly believes in the power of personalized funerals and believes “your death should tell your story just as much as your life.”
After graduating from mortuary school, Kim moved to northern Virginia where she was able to take care of our nation's veterans almost daily by going to Arlington or Quantico National Cemeteries.
Unhappy with the traffic of the DC area, Kim and her husband Bruce packed up and moved to Lakeland, Florida, where she began working at Sunset Memory Gardens in Thonotosassa and then Skyway. Despite the long commute, Kim fell in love with Skyway and its potential as a Funeral Home and Cemetery. She looks forward to helping the families in Palmetto and the surrounding area. On Kim's very rare days off you can find her taking care of her dog Hutch, eating all of Florida's amazing food, sharing memes, volunteering at the SPCA of Lakeland and enjoying trips to the beach.
Evany was born in Florida and has been a resident of Palmetto for more than 30 years. Her professionalism in administration management brings compassion and dignity to Skyway Memorial Gardens in the time of need for our friends and families.
She is dedicated to ensuring superior service to our community and dedicated to providing the best experience in the “not so” desirable times that we face.
She enjoys sharing a laugh or two, spending time with family, helping others and has never met a stranger. She is happily married and has three children, a dog and a cat.
