I worked with Vickie at Mary Kay, & after retirement, we meant for lunch several times. She was sweet & always smiling & so much fun. She loved her family & I know she was loved in return.

Tommie Hunter says:

I worked with Vickie at Southland Life and considered her a very good friend. Somehow we just lost touch and I was so shocked to read her son’s comments on FB. She was a very sweet person and I regret not staying in touch with her. My deepest sympathies to the family.

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.
