Farewell dear friend! I enjoyed every minute we got to work together. We had many laughs eating corn dogs before the Sump’n else show; and competing together in the Miss Dallas pageant. Thanks for your friendship and support back then. You were so talented!
Thank you to all of you who cared for her over the years. As Ron Chapman has stated….”she was truly one of a kind!” Till we meet again…Calleen Anderegg Grover

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.
