So sorry for your loss, my prayers and thoughts are with Phillis’s children and grandchildren. Phyllis is my Aunt, Donald was my Dad. I was ring bearer at her wedding, I’ll never forget when she got married she gave me her ring with the initials PR, I wore it proudly and remember her kindness to me. Please take care!

We were very saddened to hear of the loss of our much loved sister. Prayers for you, her children. She loved you kids more than life itself. Because of the great distance between us we never really knew each other but you were and are still very much a part of our family. You are loved. Prayers and hugs for you all at this sad time.

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.
