Randy, you were so much a part of our lives for many years. Uncle Randy, as my children called you. We weren’t ready to give you up. I so wished you could have made it to one more Thanksgiving Dinner to be with us. Too sick to come but you sent flowers. Such a kind and thoughtful heart. We’ll remember the good times with you, the camping trips and the family gatherings. God bless you and hold you in his arms.

I have enjoyed working with Randy over the last 5 years at General Electric and we will miss his warmth, kindness and the passion he had for the highly technical work that he performed.

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.
