So sorry to read of your loss. Mimi and I were “walking” friends on the track at Sun City, Huntley. We had many good conversations which made walks less boring. God’s peace be with you all.5100

Having been friends since our early marriage days in Chicago this is a very sad loss. Over the years we paired up to beat our men in bridge, but were not successful very often, When we meet again Mim, we’ll get ’em. Sure will miss seeing her on our visits to Texas. Love from Phil & I and our family to all of the Lange 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.
