Testimonials

From the moment I stepped inside, I felt at ease. When I met with Aimee [Ferro, Funeral Arranger], she eased all of my concerns and seemed to understand what I was faced with and what was to come. She was very attentive and listened to all of my fears/wishes.

I have told many people of your kindness and respect for our family, and will continue to do so. Words cannot express our gratitude. (Mike Gillispie, Funeral Arranger)

Joyce Potter

The service my family has received from Mike Gillispie would exceed anyone’s expectations.

The care and compassion demonstrated by him in particular, as well as all the staff there at your facility in Elk Grove, will be remembered by all of our family. Mike, with his attention to detail and his genuine compassion, has my utmost respect and admiration. We were able to get through such a difficult time with them as a partner.

Mark Martin

Dione did a great job in taking care of our needs for our funerals. We had specific video needs and she catered to them in a professional manner. We are quite pleased with how things turned out and it’s a memorable memorial that we will remember for quite some time. Thank you.

Dione Longoria was our main contact for our services and she handled everything in a very professional manner. We know during the COVID months and years that your business was very busy and she never treated us like it was. She listened to our requests and made them happen.

That things were taken care of without having to worry or make hard decisions. My parents paid for their services a decade before they died and it made everything easy for us to lay them to rest.

Scott Robert Craig

Exceptional service all around despite COVID restrictions. Aimee helped us navigate a sudden death with comfort and ease and patience. She was patient and professional. I have 4 siblings and she treated us all with the same kindness and comfort.

Aimee Ferro and all the receptionists were excellent and helpful. Our first call to the director was excellent and part of the reason we selected East Lawn Greenback.

Service. We had no experience with death of a family member, or mom, who died suddenly and Aimee and everyone provided amazing service without overwhelming us.

Deborah Reyman

Daniel helped us from the beginning to the end. He worked 24/7 to answer our questions. He was a tremendous help. We couldn’t be more satisfied with his service.

Kwan Y Wong

We were very impressed with the cemetery cleanliness-it’s beautiful and very well maintained. The many flowers were an indication people enjoy going there to visit their loved one’s grave.
Everyone there was very pleasant and helpful as we made arrangements a long time in advance.

Judy Montgomery

Ton Saechao is outstanding. Detailed, dependable and excellent follow through, which in the time of stress is so very much appreciated. Also, the two staff members who picked up my husband’s body were extremely compassionate and caring. They both took extreme care with his remains. It was so very thoughtful of them to communicate they left his ID bracelet on the table. Excellent service.

It was comforting to known that all pieces of the final arrangements could be handled at one place, pick-up of remains from the home, funeral “body viewing” preparations, graveside and burial.

Christine Mackey

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!”

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.”

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.
