Bob was my immediate supervisor at Identification Plates for several years. He was always professional, fair and kind. He was a joy to work for and I considered him a friend. I didn’t see him often after retirement but I thought of him often. He was a good man.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Sam and Mary Franklin

Bob gave me the opportunity when I was hired in 2008. I told him many times thank you. I got to know Bob more after work and he became a friend. I enjoyed our discussions about football the most, but more importantly his love for poker and bingo! We always enjoyed our monthly get together and playing poker with Bob. More importantly for me, is knowing more of Bob as a good person. Will miss you Bob every month and the Girl Scout cookies. It has been an honor to have worked for him but more importantly a friend for life. My best to Charlotte and the family he will be missed by all. Go Packers Bob!

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.
