Crow, Rita M.

May 5, 1933 - January 4, 2014

Rita Mae Crow of Dallas, Texas passed away on January 4, 2014 at the age of 80.

I am standing by the seashore.

A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze

And starts for the blue ocean.

She is an object of beauty and strength,

And I stand and watch until at last she hangs like a speck of white cloud

Just where the sun and sky come down to mingle with each other.

Then someone at my side says, “There she goes!”

Gone where? Gone from my sight – that is all.

She is just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left my side

And just as able to bear her load of living freight to the places of destination.

Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone at my side says, “There she goes!”

There are other eyes watching her coming,

And other voices ready to take up the glad shout:

“Here she comes!”

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.
