Over the years, my sister had my father and mother buried at the cemetary. And my sister's daughter died about 8 years ago and was buried there. I would have thought they wanted to make money and be loyal to a family who gave them business for many years. No way!

Now, my sister died 12/10 and she wanted to have her ashes in an urn buried with her daughter. Well, the Houston-based SCI corporate sales rep said we had to pay an additional $2500.00 just to add her ashes to a plot we had already purchased years ago. And that doesn't include the labor, the "urn casket", the head stone, etc. It would have cost over $4000.00 just to pay Turner and Stevens, and that didnt' include the head stone. One big rip-off by a totally greedy corpororate death exploitation company.

Instead, I used Accord Cremation and Burial Service in Brea, Ca. They are human, much more cost effective, and don't try to rip off bereaving relatives just to make their shareholders richer.

This is the resting place for my whole family. Live Oak has helped our family thru alot these last few weeks. Everyone there was very nice to our family. They helped us to get my mom's funeral in order. So I thank them so much.

Live Oak Memorial Park is an excellent cemetery. They helped us out through the whole process for my godfather's service and they made it very easy for my family. I noticed the review below and I must disagree completely. I visit the park often enough and I always see the landscaping crew working on the park. We haven't had any issues and I've already pre-purchased my wife and I property on the park.

Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. We buried our infant daughter there in late 2008 and we have to take our own gardening tools to take proper care of her grave site. Not to mention that she has had her decorations stolen three times. It's a 50/50 chance that the grounds keepers are the thieves. There is no way to tell, but be sure there is ZERO security for your loved one's resting place. My wife and I regret choosing this horrible cemetery. Don't make the same mistake we did.

Okay, this isn't a business you will won't to have repeat business, but, alas, we will all, at one time or another, need the services of a cemetary and mortuary. Turner and Stevens is one of the most professional and easy to work with.

The help to take care of all your needs, doing as much as possible during the most difficult of circumstances. What I love the most is the beautiful grounds that are immaculately kept. The neighborhood the cemetary is in is not the best, but inside the gates it is it's own world--peaceful and quiet. I would definitely recommend.

PROS: Beautiful, quiet, respectful staff
CONS: Bad neighborhood
