John and family, we loved Alline. She was always a joy to be with. She brought much style and class to the Dallas Gun Club! I know she is in a better place now, but she will always be in our hearts. I am sad to say we will not be able to attend the service as we are already attending another service at the very same time. We love you.

She was a grand and lovely lady who always brightened our day when encountered. She was generous with her time was a great example for women shooters of all stripes. God Bless and our deepest sympathy to her family.

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.
