I knew him during my childhood. I have fond memories of him. I played at his house. His daughter and I followed his pancake recipe and cooked. I remember seeing him play the piano and sing. Rest In Peace. Thanks for allowing me to grow up in your house.

I knew hI’m because he was my high school best friend’s dad and we also worked together at Mr. Jim’s Pizza. I’ll never forget the driving lesson he gave me attempting to teach me to drive a standard. Don’t knock over the cup…the empty styrofoam cup and I probably still couldn’t pass that test today. Rest In Peace.

Rachel Garrett says:

I had the pleasure to connect with Oliver just this past year. He became a good Friend and we share this connection still. His family should know how much you were and are all loved by Oliver. His greatest wish is for all to know this love.

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.
