Marsha, I know I am a name from the past but I saw Rons’ obituary and I’m so sorry for you. I will keep you in my prayers. Love, Linda

Marcia Leyden says:

I’m so sorry to learn of your loss. I am assuming that it was cancer that took Ron, and I hope you had time to adjust to what was to come. Regardless, I know that it is still the most difficult thing to endure. I’m sure your boys will stand strong by you and be there for you as needed. I will pray for God to give you the strength to endure, recover, and move forward. Love,
Marcia Leyden (Timmerman)

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.
