Dear Bret and Mallory,
Susan was an awesome lady of God and her love for family created many memories for us! Those good times and wonderful memories will help to carry us through our days here on this old earth until we get to Heaven and can see Susan healed, full of joy, and praising Jesus! Love ya guys, Mom

Mallory, I was saddened to hear of your mother’s passing. I know how hard it is to lose both parents. Take comfort in the time you had with her and that she is now at peace. Love,

A beautiful life gone too soon. May the memories you have of Susan comfort you, as well as the hope of a future resurrection as promised at Acts 24:15.

Dear Mallory,
Know that you & mom were always a blessing to our office & lives. My deepest symphathy to you and your husband. Much love, Melanie

Sue Hefler says:

Oh, Mallory – ! Now I see where so much of your physical and spiritual beauty comes from. Never before having seen a photo of your mom – or at least not remembering her countenance this vividly – I am stunned by her absolute God given beauty. And everyone says it was from the inside out … just like you, kiddo. 🙂
Please know the great & loving Christlike spirits you and Bret exude will set examples for so many people – young and old – who will walk in similar shoes and then one day cross your paths. God has used and will continue to use the both of you greatly.
Aunt Sue

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.
