One condolence on “Formeller, Shirley Ann”

Cynthia Farenga says:

John, I wasn’t smart enough to take your mom’s math classes, but she was quite a positive role model for me, a budding feminist. You and I took a couple of classes and perhaps did a play together. So sorry for your loss. Peace.

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.
