What our customers say about us
I wanted you to know how pleased I am in choosing Summit Memorials for the memorial marker for my mother. I want to compliment Barbara on her knowledge, kindness, understanding, and her listening skills. I have recommended Barbara and your company to several of my friends. In today’s world it is hard to fin d a company with such wonderful customer service.
We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation for your kind contribution toward the Babe Flossie L.A. Open Golf Outing. A beautiful picture and article appeared in the Beacon Journal and Channel 23 covered the dedication on television. The monument itself stands at Garfield High School on the practice field. Please feel free to observe the tribute to Coach Flossie at any time. The work on the monument was done by Summit Memorial and is an outstanding piece of craftsmanship and art. We would like to give special thanks to them for going the extra yard as Coach would have said. Your help enabled us to leave a lasting memory of Coach Flossie and all the things he contributed to our lives. The entire Flossie family and all those involved in the working of the outing want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I am rather ashamed that I took this long to drop you this note but was not feeling up to par, maybe Josephine is calling me home now that her Grave Marker is done right. Felt I just had to drop you a line to say that last Sunday after church I dropped by Holy Cross Cemetery as I often do every Sunday after church and how low and behold the Grave Marker was in place. Words fail me….You and Summit Memorials company did a TERRIFIC job, one I am sure that Josephine herself is pleased with….not only that but perhaps thanks to Sharon of Holy Cross for perhaps she was right there to insure that the stone was placed there with the newly engraved side up and not only that, it was really at the head of the grave, not facing the other way. Maybe Tony Pilla and his boys were wide awake and sober. It goes without saying that if “I” ever hear of someone who is shopping for a grave marker I am certainly going to tell them about SUMMIT MEMORIAL INC. a great efficient outfit to deal with and very REASONABLE. Your outfit is the answer to every one’s prayer who is looking for a monument with a reason and excellent work. Summit Memorial Inc can be proud of their workmanship and their staff, especially in dealing with such people as “Barbara.” All I can say is THANKS a million for a job well done, superb, beyond words.
I want to let you know how very pleased the family is with the kindness, monuments and customer service you show all your customers. We were impressed with the speed in which you got the monuments done and placed in the cemeteries. The tiger was perfect and a pleasure to visit. I know Tony would have been so pleased. We recommend you to everyone that needs a grave marker. Thank you so much for being so kind at this tough time of our lives. I appreciate all that you have done for us.
I had a vision... you made it an awesome reality. Your enthusiasm helps me cope better every time I see the memorial. I have found a great deal of comfort in this whole experience. Thank you for walking beside me through it all. Be proud of who you are and what you do. You have so much to offer.
You’re very nice to work with! Your honesty, generosity, and true compassion are and forever will be appreciated. My son’s stone is beautiful and we have received many compliments. He gets alot of visitors and the stone is truly one of a kind just like Nathan was. Now when I visit him I have a marker that helps me feel the pride that I felt with all Nathan’s acknowledgements while he was with us. Thank you so Much.
My family and I thank you for the fine work you did on the memorial stone for my parents. Your workmanship was excellent. Your personal service was exceptional. In fact, had it not been for your attention to details and our schedule for the Memorial Service at the gravesite, we would not have known that the church people had not been on top of things. Even though the cemetery people failed to do the concrete footing in time, you managed to deliver and temporarily set the stone in the proper place for our graveside service on August 5th. We're told that footing will be done on August 15th, after which they will place your stone on the footer. Again many thanks. It’s comforting to know that some people care enough to serve their customers with kind of service you provide.
Just a quick note, Marty and I were back in Akron in August for my 50th High School Class reunion. We were able to visit the Rose Hill Cemetery and wanted to let you know we were very pleased with the stone you helped us create for Randy. Thanks again. It was a pleasure dealing with you and your company.
Thank you for your help in choosing the Memorial for Greg. You eased a very difficult time for me and I will always be grateful. I am very pleased with it and I could not have done it without your help.
The monument is exactly what my family hoped it would be. Everyone is in awe of the beauty of the stone and the design. I appreciate not feeling pressured to make a quick decision regarding its completion. Ken was very accommodating by allowing us to be a part of the design process. I wish you all continued success.
Thank you so very much for all your help. My mother’s stone looks wonderful. The flying pigs look exactly like the drawing. I know she would love it.
Thank you so much for your prompt help with my mother’s stone. You will never know what relief your assistance gave me. I'll let others know about your prompt service.
I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done for me. My great grandmother’s head stone is beautiful. It’s everything I wanted for her. You do right by people and God will Bless you now and forever more especially. You’re the greatest and I would refer you whole heartedly!
My experience purchasing a memorial stone with your custom unique in scripted design was far beyond my expectation. The people at Summit Memorials are very skilled, gracious, kind and were extremely helpful during my time of need. My family of brothers and sisters were very proud that this stone turned out to be a beautiful work of art that brought tears of joy to our family at the grave site. This stone was erected in September 2007 and blessed by the Metropolitan Herman, of the Orthodox Church. Our friends and people we do not know come up to me at the cemetery and remark about how nice and unique this memorial stone is. Its obvious to me these craftsmen at Summit Memorials put a great deal of time and personal effort when creating a piece of art making a memorial stone. I would highly recommend Summit Memorials as the place to plan your selection and design when looking for the memorial stone that is right for you and your beloved departed. We would like to thank again the people of Summit Memorials.

I am a co-worker of Lillian Woodard. I went to see the monument last Friday that you made for Heather what a gorgeous piece of craftsmanship. And what a generous, wonderful thing to donate to such a deserving people. I just wanted to tell you that many people truly appreciate your work and gift.
