John was my frind for over 40 yr’s. we grew up togather and along with Jeff McGuire and other ones on the block we were very fornunit to have lived close to each other for so many year’s. I want to express to his mom ,dad and sister marvel my prayers and thought’s. John was one of a kind he was a joker and lauphed all the time.

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.
