Comfort had stayed home all day and took care of Mom, she did her nails, and made sure she was comfortable.  In the morning, she had breathing difficulty, and Comfort had the nurse come out.  They took care of mom, and everything was good, until about 8:00 pm when Comfort called Carl that he needed to come home soon, as the breathing had changed again.  Carl made it home about 8:35 pm, Comfort and Carl held moms hands, and expressed their love of her, as she slipped away, within 10 minutes of Carl’s arrival. Linda passed away peacefully in the hands of her son and his wife Comfort at their house in Dallas, TX on at 8:45pm.

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.
