Bonnie and I met many years ago at a Dallas Human Resources career meeting. I felt, we had an immediate connection which turned into a long term, cherished friendship. She was so kind to include me into her circle of friends which I have also enjoyed. That was Bonnie!

She was smart, well read, a people person, an interesting conversationalist and a good listener. I liked to ask her what she was reading (often biographies), because she could provide a great synopsis with all the important nuggets! I always wished I had her great memory and recall of details, past and present!

I will miss Bonnie for many reasons, including our frequent conversations on a wide range of topics, that always involved our interest in politics and the topics of the day!

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.
