Helen was a good friend of mine and I will miss her so much.

Carol Hughes says:

I was a close neighbor of Helen’s and I really enjoyed the times we got to share at the center and outside talking. The one thing she never mentioned was her age. I had NO IDEA she was 90! She certainly did NOT present herself to be that age. She was a go getter, walking around the complex like someone much younger than her given years.
She was a very kind and humorous lady who I will definitely miss seeing around.
Prayers to all her family & close friends, for I know how much you will all miss her. My sincere condolences to you all.

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.
