Darlene had a warm smile that lit up any room. Everyone was attracted to her happy disposition. She was an incredible daughter, wife, mother and friend. She lived a strong Christian life of serving others without expecting anything in return.
Darlene as her angel wings and is watching over all of us but especially her family.
She is missed!

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
