I am so blessed to have known Randy. We met through rescue and he and Melissa were always supportive of my rescue efforts. Many times they would be my saving grace even when I felt like I had nowhere else to turn. He was always smiling. Always laughing. Always there to help a friend in need. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. I can only hope to find him again one day in heaven. Good people like Randy are rare and I’m blessed and so grateful to have had him for a friend. Rest and rock on in heaven now Randy.

Dan McBride says:

Randy was always a joy to be around and he will be greatly missed. I pray that Melissa, Britny and the rest of his loving family find strength during this time and that they can truly celebrate a life well lived. While the music he played through his phone on the juke box at The Lantern was not quite to my taste, it never took away from the times I enjoyed being in his presence.

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.
