We went to see Shawn's stone today and it is amazing! We are so pleased with it. I wouldn’t change a thing! I think our son, Justin, who jumped on board with wanting it to be 'cool' like Shawn, was particularly pleased. The green color is perfect with the shamrock cross design. Thank you for conveying our ideas so well! As broken as our hearts our without Shawn, we are pleased to have something so beautiful honoring his life."

"Picking a monument for your loved one, especially when it's your beloved child, is extremely difficult, and can easily put you in a downward spiral of grief. However, working with Ellen and Nick, they immediately put you at ease and thoughtfully listen to your memories and interests. They take your thoughts and create wonderful images that become a living memory and their enthusiasm helps you to feel excited to honor your loved one. We are grateful for the time they have spent with us to do this for our lovely son, Shawn."

"My experience with the Staff and Ellen and Nick was so rewarding in the outcome of our Monument (Frankie's and Mine)..it is far beyond what I thought it would look like when it was completed...You were all so cooperative and willing to work with me when I was still in great need of compassion and help. Our family just loves the stone, and I know if Frankie could be here, he would say the same..He and I spoke about what we might like to have as far as a 'marker' goes and we both agreed we would like it to resemble the award that we have at home...Your stone cutters and engraver did a fantastic job...I love to go out to the cemetery....it is so relaxing, spiritual and quiet....it is just wonderful and Frankie and I have some great conversations.....I love you all for all you did for me and you have often told me 'if there is anything we can do for you or help you with just ask'....God bless"

George Mirabella of Georgetown said his wife, Lucille Mirabella, wanted him to change their planned grave sites for Pflugerville to Our Lady of the Rosary in 2006 after she saw the cemetery. "She just liked the natural look. I go there every Sunday after Mass ....I'm glad she's there when the bluebonnets come. The cemetery is the only good thing about losing my wife."
- Quoted from the Austin American Statesman Article
"This cemetery is a welcoming spot", Mary Shields said in a recent feature in the Austin American Statesman. "During the last anniversary of our daughter, Amy's death, Jimmy and I spent three hours there walking the nature trails going to the top of the hill and looking down. You don't see fake flowers; you see the natural beauty."
