To Carolyn & Kelvin Citizen, I met Sergeant Major Ervin J. Citizen in 1986, While serving as Sergeant Major Installation Support White Sands Missile Range NM. As soon as we met we became instant friends. I came to know Joe as a gentile man who loved God, his family and proudly served his country. Many people were fond of Joe due to his enormous heart and caring spirit. Carolyn & Kelvin, on Sep. 13 2021 My Dear Friend went home to be with the Lord. I will always continue to love and cherish all the great memories of my great Friend Ervin Joseph Citizen and look forward to meeting him again some great day.

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.
