The unexpecting passing of an especially kind and loving family member is heartbreaking. It was decided that Memorial Park Funeral Home would handle arrangements for our loved one. We were met at the door by a former colleague who directed us to Melanie Bowen and Greg Ferguson who treated us with great compassion. Melanie and Greg created an atmosphere that helped, and continues to help us through this very difficult time. We had questions, as would be expected. Melanie and Greg were available, at a moment's notice to answer questions and provide the services that led to an elegant celebration of our loved one's life. Word cannot express our gratitude; indeed, a mere thank you, though heartfelt, seems inadequate. That noted, thank you to the entire Memorial Park Staff. You were wonderful when you were most needed.

I want to express my thanks to Jeremy Golden. Anytime I have asked to speak with him - he always has a smile on his face and he is willing to listen and help you in any way possible. I purchased a plan with the Funeral Home for a tree to be put on our plots. The tree died and when I went in to see what can be done - Jeremy helped me have another one planted. Jeremy also helped my brother-in-law make arrangements for his mother and to have his father moved from another cemetery to Memorial Park. Any time I have gone into Memorial Park - all the employees have been willing to assist me with a smile on their face. Stacy also helped me with the last tree that died. Stacy understood my problem and explained to me that they no longer have that program and that I would receive a refund of the original amount that I spent for the tree. My sister, myself and my husband will be cremated and put in the bench that we purchased next to our mother.

My family and I want to thank Ryan Cochran for his help and great kindness. My grandparents are buried in the cemetery, but I was having a terrible time locating them. They passed way back in 1964 and 1983. When I called, Ryan not only gave me the locations, but he offered to walk out there, take pictures, and send them to me -- you see I live in Seattle, so there was no way I could take the pictures myself. I have since shared them with my brother and sister. We all grew up in Fort Myers, but our dad was from St. Pete. We have many many happy memories of visiting our grandparents in St. Pete, and it is a great joy to us to have found them and have these pictures. Thank you, Ryan -- you were so kind and it meant so much to us.

I wanted to thank Rachel Trout,she recently assisted me with my moms cremation it was quick & Rachel made it painless! Thank you P.G


My husband & I purchased 5 plots plus burial services at the beautiful memorial Park in the late 80's. Since then we have two family members resting peacefully there. The staff was compassionate, caring, and helped us through those very difficult times. Today, we're in the process of designing our headstone with the competent, professional, and good humored guidance of Julian Moldovan. Julian has the patience of Job, as we've probably needed more hand holding than most. Thank you, Julian for getting us through to a lovely design. We couldn't have done it without you. Diana Cohen

I like to thank you all for helping make my Mother's funeral an unforgettable day. The day was flawless thanks to the services your staff provided. Your staff was so accommodating, with arranging all the flowers, food, drinks, seating and there were a ton of flowers, food and guests. Your staff treated our family with so much respect and let us do our own thing, we were amazed. Thank you so much.

I would like to thank Rosie for all her help and compassion. She is a just a joy at such a time where it is hard to find any joy in your life before and after a loved ones passing. I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful a human being she is. Rosie goes above and beyond just doing her job her heart is bigger then all of the seas combined. I would and have recommended her to friends and relatives. If it were not for her I’m not sure I would have made it through this process. Thank you to all at Memorial Park and most of all to Rosie your the best.

I would like to thank Jeremy Golden for researching the previous arrangements that had been made for the burial my mother, which I was unaware of. This provided options and an unexpected reduction in costs. Rain was forecast for the day of the services. Staff had prepared the site early to ensure the service could proceed on time. Thanks to Jeremy and staff, we were able to bury my Mother's remains without any distractions.

Our family would like to thank everyone at Memorial Park Funeral Home for the extraordinary service they provided to our family after the loss of our beloved mother Valerie. I want to thank your staff who came to my mother's bedside at Suncoast Hospice to assist my family in planning the funeral to Katherine, our Family Service Advisor, who made sure the funeral service was performed seamlessly and with such attention to detail. I want to thank the staff who so beautifully placed my mother's flower arrangements in such an elegant manner and who went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed before the service began. After the service ended, they made sure everything was packed up ready for us to pick up the next day. I must say, I was overwhelmed by the professionalism and dedication to service displayed by Memorial Park staff. You made this most difficult day much easier and allowed our family to say goodbye with dignity. Regards, Lisa Tomicich

On Saturday we visited Memorial Park in St. Petersburg. While looking for my husband's brother's plot we were approached by two groundskeepers, Harmon Farley and Bob Lieber. They stopped when they saw us walking about with our heads down. They asked if they could help and immediately called to get the location of the plot we were searching for. They then cleaned the area around the marker and even sprayed the brass to clean it. With caring people like Harmon and Bob we have a level of comfort in having choosen Memorial Park in St. Petersburg for our burial needs.
