My mother’s passing was somewhat unexpected and arrangements were not planned. East Lawn has always appeared to be the most established mortuary in the Sacramento area and exudes a professional presentation. That was confirmed when I arrived there on a Sunday afternoon with no knowledge of how to handle this unfortunate event. Jessica (Enriquez) was clear concise and compassionate in her manner throughout the process. She made herself available by phone and email and was prompt, professional and courteous in her interactions. I told Jessica that I wished all businesses were as professional. I understand that you really only get one chance to make things flow smoothly and it was performed with excellence. Thank you!Greig Laurence Best
The absolute best service and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Crystal Langer was an absolute sweetheart and she went above and beyond to make the process stress-free and smooth with a beautiful outcome. She was attentive, caring and comforting. During the difficult time of losing my mom, she made me feel 100% comfortable to reach out to her with anything that I needed. She made the process and planning very easy and stress-free. And the best part was that the service was absolutely beautiful! She did a wonderful job! Many thanks to her and her team who really made my mom’s service better than I could have ever imagined.Katherine Fountain-Cornick
My siblings and I are so thankful for the professionalism shown by the staff at East Lawn. Lorena and Stephanie were instrumental in making my father’s final wishes come true and his funeral was exactly what he wanted. Everyone at East Lawn was kind and comforting in what is a difficult time for most families losing a loved one, especially a parent. We are grateful for the caring shown to us, and would certainly recommend East Lawn to anyone.Barbara McKnight, James Grey and Susan Hall
Dearest Jessica (Enriquez) the words “thank you” are not enough to express my deepest & sincerest appreciation for all the time & hard-work you spent with mom’s service. In my dealings with you there were no “no’s” only “yes” to my requests. Most of all Jessie, you displayed so much care, understanding & support. I am so appreciative of the personal service (as if we have been friends for years) you provided to me. The rapport with you was so enjoyable & comforting. Meeting you & having to honor & pleasure of working with you Jessie was the best thing that happened since mom’s passing. East Lawn should be honored & blessed to have you represent their company. Thank you for all you did to honor & pay tribute to our mom.– Julie T. & Siblings
Thank you (Jeran Je) for all of your help and all of your patience in the advance planning of my own funeral/memorial service. You’ve seen to all of my requests with understanding and kindness. You’ve made a big difference in my assurance that things will go as planned. Your courtesy and professionalism will be remembered by my family and recommended to others– W.H. White, Jr
When my mom passed away, I had absolutely no idea what to do or how to Proceed. This sadly was my first experience having to make arrangements for a love one. I called East Lawn a few minutes after the hospital notified me of my mom’s passing. I was in shock. Mr. Mike Gillispie was so incredibly kind, professional, and helpful. He walked me through all of the steps necessary to complete the arrangements for my mother. I would most definitely share my experience with friends, family.– Dolores G.
Because of COVID-19, everyone at East Lawn was trying so hard to do what they could, yet their hands were tied. The staff could not have been nicer to me. They each really cared how I was doing every time we spoke. Because of COVID-19 we couldn’t have a service indoors, but it was wonderful how they helped work through everything and made the experience meaningful with a lovely outdoor set-up.– Robert A.
Jessica (Harston) was very professional, compassionate and attentive to our needs – making every effort to accommodate our requests. East Lawn even opened up earlier than normal the day of the funeral service so we could view before leaving for the service at our church.– Barbara R.
Thank you, Jessica (Enriquez) for being you and for all the help and expertise you extended to us. You did a wonderful job in help us honor our loved one. Your gentleness…really helped us through this.– Barbara & Family
Dennis (Early) was caring, understanding, and extremely professional. He even came to our residence to help my mother who was too weak to meet at East Lawn. Dennis remembered everything about my mother – all the way down to her favorite color and favorite flower. It was extremely touching. He made all of our accommodations and requests come to fruition. Craig (Peterson) and Dennis were beyond exceptional with their compassion and professionalism. Thank you to both!”– Lyle L.
My family and I chose East Lawn to take care of my father’s services, although there was another mortuary right down the street who we met with first. But, I got the feeling of being at a car dealership when I arrived. There is nothing worse than being in that emotional state after just losing someone and then feel like someone is there just to get the sale. East Lawn was the polar opposite, and I’m so glad my family and I chose them over the other funeral home.– The Oandasan Family
“Arranging a funeral for my daughter was the hardest thing I have ever had to do but the staff here made it just a little bit manageable. They were very attentive and always available for questions or concerns. I truly felt like the staff here truly cared about me and my daughter and making sure every wish I had for her and her funeral happened exactly how I wanted it. Everything they did, especially our Director Dione (Longoria) has meant a lot but the way they cared for my daughter and treated her so kindly – I will forever be grateful.”– Michele B.
From the moment you (Victor Sanchez) opened the door and shook our hand, we knew we were in good hands with you. You understood my sense of urgency in having my sweet Ed transferred into your care. You patiently described your services and helped me pick music and you created such a beautiful slideshow.– Mary M.
