Always a smile and a conversation to make me laugh. I loved to see the twinkle in your eye when you looked at Dena, as though you two shared a special secret. You will be missed by so many. May we meet again someday on the other side and finish some of the conversations we started.

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.
