Aunt Barrett,
I am saddened to learn about Uncle Fred’s passing. I will not be able to attend the memorial service as I will be in the Galapagos Islands. You and Uncle Fred were always so kind to me. You will always have a special place in my heart. Please accept my condolences. My heart and prayers go out to you and Matt and Faith for the loss of whom I believed to be a loving husband, father, brother and uncle.
Love, Cynthia

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.
