Thank you so much for EVERYTHING. You are a very compassionate man. You helped me deal with dad's death better than I could have ever expected. Just taking the time for these videos shows that, even though the service is done, you still took extra time...bless you. Again, thanks for your help, J.CJ.C 5 stars ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Thank you Tracy for the flowers you put in our vases on Monday ( R.H.) Please understand that we blame no one - we were just surprised to see them gone again! There is no way to control such things in a place that size. We enjoyed the hot dogs. Have a great summer.J.H. 5 stars ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Let me start off with, if I could give 10 stars, I would! And I really hope reading this gives someone else comfort. During the toughest time of my life, Kim and Pam were absolutely the most compassionate, professionals I've ever had the pleasure of working with. My dad died and I was beyond lost at were to start. Kim listened to all my concerns and went above and beyond anything I could have ever asked. The facility has top notch employees and service and the grounds are absolutely beautiful. We held the service off site only due to the amount of attendance, but Kim secured the church and finalized the plans so it stayed simple and smooth for us. Again, top notch service and would recommend to anyone. ”Natalie Rupert February 25, 2020 5 stars ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“Five sisters lost their only brother, P.M.P. The first sibling to pass. Skyway Memorial Gardens was so kind to us. We had exceptional service and care from the first phone call to the placement of his ashes. The cost was affordable and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating to our needs during this heartbreaking time. Included in the fee was the use of the small chapel, which was very comforting. However, we anticipated a large crowd to attend the service since our family grew up in this area. After talking with them, they offered us the use of the larger room and it worked out perfect. They also arranged a special service area to respectfully place his ashes into a niche on a later date. Our family cannot say enough about Skyway Memorial Gardens for their assistance and care shown to us during our time of need. Special thanks to Christy Allen Gill, Tracey, Ms. Nebel and Christopher Burtless.

“Dear friends at Skyway Memorial, Having just conducted my first service at Skyway, I wanted to let you know what a beautiful place you have and to thank you for all the professional support I received as well as the family of C.D. on Oct. 10. As I talked to a couple of people there I did mention that both my wife and I are available to conduct services. We both spent many years working for hospice and believe services must honor and respect the individual and family no matter what their faith or beliefs or lack thereof. ”Rev. B. 5 stars ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
