A gem of a human being. Loved to pull pranks on one another. Like the time he was lolligagging in the morning, and i had the sales guys turn his desk around. He walked in, cig in mouth, went behind his desk. Paused, looked like what the hell, then yelled “cinderella” . Hysterical. Or he time he and bob bet i wouldn’t pour a picher of beer on gil goodrich’s head. New years was a hoot at his house too. Pee was a very positive and kind man. I am honored to have known him.

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.
