I may not have seen John in a long time but still have many fond memories. I was with Lois when they met. I met his son Johnny the day he was born. I live in Strongsville, OH and think about him every time I pass his condo before the family moved to Texas. My heart breaks for his family. I love all of you and can’t express how sorry I am for your loss.

I have many great memories of John as a friend/coworker. He was a pleasure even when he thought the glass was half empty and I would argue it was half full. He was always respectful and helpful. I know he will be missed. My prayers go out to Lois and the family. I have made a donation today toward the research for SARC.

John was my cousin. We reconnected when I visited Dallas on business about 15 years ago. I will miss our frequent phone conversations. John was one of the good guys. He had contacted me two days before he passed away. I was shocked to hear the news. RIP cuz, I will see you again some day.

Dear Lois and children, you are in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your beloved husband and father. While I never met John, I knew that he had to be an extra-special guy for Lois to commit her life to him in marriage. Sending love and prayers across the miles, Lois. Your friend of too many years to count, Elaine (Horun) Gaughan

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.
