McDermott-Crockett Mortuary Holding ‘Gone But Not Forgotten’ Memorial Gathering

McDermott-Crockett & Associates Mortuary will host a memorial gathering titled "Heart of Compassion ... Gone But Not Forgotten" to honor and remember those in our community who would otherwise go unnoticed.

The gathering will be held from 11 a.m. to noon Wednesday, June 25 at 2020 Chapala St. in Santa Barbara.

Funerals and memorial services bring comfort to those whose loved ones have passed on and help us to remember them after they’re gone. However, many people in Santa Barbara County don’t have family or friends to mourn their passing and are often times forgotten.

Some of the men and women who make up this group of people have served our country in the armed forces, are homeless or unborn. When they die, there is nobody to put flowers on their grave or mourn their passing. The story behind these men and women, young and old, are as important as any one of our own, but often go untold.

At McDermott-Crockett Mortuary, we ensure that every person in our care is treated with dignity, honor and respect, and that they have a proper memorial service to honor their life.

— Jennifer Parks is the general manager of McDermott-Crockett & Associates Mortuary.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
