Jo Gay Paul will be missed by those who had the good fortune to know her. She had a kind heart as witnessed by her family, friends and the many animals she cared for.
She was a gracious guest when she came to dinner and could play a good game of poker! Another example of her kindness was sport fishing that she really enjoyed. The fish were always thrown back!
Jo Gay Paul will be missed by the many whose lives she touched.

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.
