To the family and friends of Brian, I am saddened to hear of your loss. It seems like only yesterday Brian and I were sledding down Hansen’s hill, riding our bikes around the neighborhood and hanging out at River of Lakes. Rest in Peace Brian. I have thought of you many times in September and will continue to do so.

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.
