Our “Chopped Liver,” I can not possibly write in one paragraph what you mean to us. You made life such an adventure. I will always remember you sipping ice tea telling your stories of the Indians all while wearing your cool hiking boots. The look on your face was NJ was born and how proud you were to be a grandfather will always bring a smile to my face. I will never forget when you came to the hospital and held Logan and said “wow he is going to be a dandy!” You made such an impression on our family and we will always love you and remember you.

Preston Neely says:

I am very saddened to hear of Dave’s passing. I was a customer of his at my old company, but became a friend, and always enjoyed running into him at the local Tom Thumb in the neighborhood. My thoughts and prayers are with the Hammon family. The angels got a good one when Dave came.

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.
