Dear Georgene, Please know that you and your family are in our prayers. We will remember the gleam in Jack’s eyes when he talked about his flying adventures in the air force. He was one-of-a-kind that’s for sure and a loving person to you and all that he met. Please know that I hold you in my heart and if you need anything you can always let me know. Lots of love–Bernie

Jack was a great man with many stories and a big heart. He showed my mother the world and brought the world home in pictures. I am so glad God placed him in all of ours lives in one way or the other.

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.
