Dotty and I decided early on that we were truly sisters-of-the-heart, and I already miss her terribly. Heaven is now that much more precious to me, and my heart is assured that once again we will be together! We shared such funny adventures together as we’ll as times of great sorrow, but we were always there for one another! Love with all my heart, Sandra (and Buzz as well.)

Claudia Jackson says:

Today is your Celebration of Life and I truly wish you were still here with me. I really do not know how to go on without you. We have gone through good and bad times but our love for each other has never changed. You were always there to listen to my victories and problems. Hoping you are at peace with John, Mac and Nana. You will forever be in my heart.

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.
