On behalf of my entire family, we would like to express our sincere appreciation of all of the people at your incredibly, outrageously, gorgeous facility for all you did to make the Celebration of Life event we had for our mother, Virginia C. Ellingen, at the Frederik Meijer Gardens a smashing success. I only wish I’d had more time over the weekend to luxuriate in the beauty of the Gardens and Sculpture Park.

EVERYTHING was perfect. I can honestly say I wouldn’t have changed a thing. The family LOVED the slideshow, which we kept on continuously throughout the event. The music was a nice touch, The microphones worked exactly as we required. The tables and flowers looked fantastic (thank you Kennedy Florists for their excellent interpretation of my requests) and the food! The food was first class all the way–perfection. Everyone was complimenting it and happily ate their selected options. The waitstaff were attentive yet not intrusive.

Because everything was so flawless, we could focus on the people who came and the sharing of thoughts and memories. You all made that possible, and we can’t thank you enough.
