So sorry for the Loss of your brother Charles. He is in Heavan with those departed before him. But just know when here something in the kitchen it’s him looking for a snack, and that cool breeze you feel in your hair unexpectedly, or you that expression on Minco’s face that makes you say You look just your Dad. Memories are forever.

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.
