Letter to my mom:

I know I have the words, but my tears and the lump in my throat make it so hard to express my heart breaking into pieces. As you aged I found myself becoming more and more grateful for your presence. Hearing your voice, talking with you to laughing with you..your unique laugh.. oh how I’ll miss you. You were my world and despite, you not being perfect; you were and will always be perfect to me.  No matter the circumstances my heart you had and will alway have.  I thought time nor distance could never keep me from you and now time has stopped for you, so leave all the pain, disappointments, failures behind and allow me to hold all the joy, love, and memories in my heart.  I miss you so much momma.

Due to the pandemic my mother’s ashes will be scattered in a private session at a later date.

My Heart goes out to you and your family Sherlandl. I know first hand the deep pain you feel in your heart because its like apart of you has been taken away. In my opinion it has..there is nothing Greater than a Mother’s Love and just know that’s something that you can carry for the rest of your Life. Because Nothing or No One can replace the Love of a Mother.
I Love You Sherland

My beloved grandmother was of many qualities, but the quality I’m most grateful for is birthing my mom and (helping) care for my siblings and I. We shared many laughs, and I will forever reflect on the good times. I’m so grateful I was able to see and talk to her in her final days. Thank you to everyone who has been supportive to and for my mom. God bless you all and may my beloved grandmother Rest In Peace.

Me and Mrs.Dee didn’t didn’t seem to see eye to eye about anything when we first met, but over the years we had a good relationship. I went from calling her Mrs Dee to Moma Dee and I still feel the same way today. I wished I could have cooked her a T-bone steak, that was one of her favorite foods. We will meet again Moma Dee.

Michelle Mimms says:

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.
