“I called Hillcrest to inquire about their cemetery because my sister passed and I was 2000 miles away. When I called Hillcrest a lovely woman, Susan, answered the phone. She was so kind and helpful to me. She guided me through what was needed to properly put my sister to rest. The cemetery is beyond beautiful with oak trees, birds singing, and has a quiet winding road. Our entire family is so grateful to have found a glorious final resting place for our sweet sister. Thank you Hillcrest for your warmth and guidance in making this difficult time a positive, seamless experience.”

“I want to sincerely thank Susan Culver for helping me find out information regarding my sister-in-law Betty Woerner. I am the Power of Attorney for Betty and needed to obtain very important information regarding future funeral arrangements for Betty. Susan was very professional and polite. She went above and beyond to help me get the needed information. Thank You Susan!!”

“I am very appreciative of the caring and service provided by Mary Titmus and her team during a difficult time, from my initial phone call needing to pick a plot and plan a funeral from afar, through ordering and installing a memorial marker months later. Mom was buried in the Jewish tradition, and Mary and her team helped us with all the necessary arrangements. The Garden of David is a nice, tranquil place, beautifully maintained. The staff was very attentive during the funeral service, bringing extra chairs for guests when they saw it was necessary, and by providing a protective canopy for the comfort of mourners.”

“Best place I've ever worked. ❤️ Strong ethical leadership with uncompromising principles. After my 30+ year career as a surgical technologist, I've entered a career, no a purpose that I was destined to fulfill. Thank you God, Hillcrest Memorial Gardens for allowing me to serve our community, one family at a time. These Gardens are the best kept secret in Lake County! Come see for yourself!”

I received Alyssa's information from the funeral director who stated that she does her very best to assist and he was absolutely correct. She was very helpful and informative. She helped to create a beautiful grave marker for my husband. Always caring, compassionate, knowledgeable and prompt. Thanks Alyssa ”
