Oh Lisa. This will be the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do and will hurt so deeply. You are a wonderful daughter who took care of your mom as long as possible. My heart aches for you. Tia Chris was always very loving and nice to me. I have a hard time with words at a time like this. I’m sending you hugs.

Lisa says:

Mom-If I had only known how much time I had left with you….oh I would’ve played the last 2 weeks of your life so differently. I would’ve made sure that NO ONE treated you any different than what you deserved… wouldn’t have behaved the way you did if you hadn’t been sick. I miss you so so much! I just hope that you know how much I truly loved you and continue to love you. I don’t know that my life will ever be the same. I do try and go on, day by day, but boys does it hurt so so much. I miss you Mom, Jack, Louise and whatever ever other name I gave you along the way of the life you and I shared. I love you Mom!

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.
