One condolence on “Wright, Leatrice May”

Sherri (Brown) Martin says:

Dear Pam & Family,
My sympathy to you. I was saddened to read that you lost your mom. I remember her making us whole wheat pancakes for breakfast once when I spent the night with you. I had never had them before, and I was worried that I wouldn’t like them! I did. I hope your wonderful memories comfort you. Take care.

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.
