My sincere condolences to the entire Gantz Family on the passing of Eve. I have worked with him off and on over the last 51 years. He hired me tomy last job with LTV, Lorel, and Lockheed Martin. He was a very dear friend and I know how much he and Ann will be missed.
I loved them both. They were the best kind of people.

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.
