So sorry for your loss but and want to express my love to all of you at this time. Thankful for the faithfulness of all. Love you!

Marie R Lewis says:

Raymond was a sweet, caring, and affable man. We shared many laughs (especially when he lost so many sets of teeth). He supported me after my husband passed away and he was so proud when I told him I had returned to the Church.
He was a dear friend and I will miss him. May he rest in peace.

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.
