This is such a huge loss. I loved Shirley’s spunkiness, even if she did tell me that purple represented insanity, ha-ha!

Our deepest and sincere condolences to the Mitchell and Thompson families! Our family loved Shirley and have many great memories from our days in El Paso. I am speaking with Faye Pierce right now and she remembers those nights of great family fun back in the 60’s! We are here for you Harold, Debbie, Steve and Ron. We love you very much!

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.
