Tommie Sue will be greatly missed. I could always count on a fun time time and many laughs in her company. She was married to my Dad later in their lives and I will always appreciate the love and support she gave to all of us. My family will continue to enjoy her many great recipes and cooking skills she shared for years to come. Love, Bethy and family.

Linda Sinclair says:

Dear Christina and Mike. I am so sorry for your loss and for the delay in sending condolences. I only learned of Tommie Sue’s passing when researching on She was such a lovely lady and a kind, fun-loving aunt. When I was young, there was nothing better than hanging out with Auntie Tom and then with Auntie Tom and Uncle Henry. Hugs to you both. Love, Linda Sinclair, Mary Jo’s oldest daughter.

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.
