Mom, these last 3 months have been a struggle for you and now you are at peace and with the Lord. I want to remember you sitting in your room with the curtains open watching our neighbors and telling me what is going on – Miss Noisy is what I called you. The laughs that we have had, the meals that you really didn’t eat and memories. Up to the time that you passed, you were still spunky and such a spitfire. You were right, you just went to sleep peacefully. I will treasure each and every moment that we have had together. Love you and miss you so much! Donna

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.
