Shirley and I were classmates in grade school at Lisbon Elementary, later at Adamson High. She was a beautiful and elegant lady. Our grade school bunch got together in 1998 and stayed in touch from then on. We all loved Shirley. ken1241

Ahmommie – You are a shining beacon of light in the dark and I will miss you so very much. When Brandon and I became a couple, I remember how fortunate I felt have you in my life. Your advice, hugs and sweet sweet voice are the things I will remember most about you. As well as the awesome chocolate sheet cake. I know Pop is happy to have you again. I know you are always watching over us. We love you always and forever.

What a delight Shirley was to those of us who knew her from our sewing and quilting classes. We enjoyed many lunches after our classes stopped and have missed Shirley’s sweet personality since she became ill. I consider it a blessing to have had her touch my life.

Ms. Shirley will be missed dearly. I know she will forever live in your hearts and minds, through you she lives on.
Took care of Ms. Shirley for a short time and I know I’m blessed to have met and known such a lovely lady.

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.
