    Dear Jimmy, Thank you again for all that you did this past weekend for arranging the burial of my mother's ashes at Laurel Hill Cemetery. My brother and I along with the rest of my extended family appreciate the attention that you gave to the arrangements, including providing us with a tent at no cost. We stopped by Laurel Hill as we left and everything was in order following the placement of the slab. Personally, I appreciate all of the guidance that you gave me in readying for the service as well as your patience. This sort of occasion is never easy for the family, but you made it as easy as it could be. Thank you again for all of you assistance. Brian E. Crenshaw Read more

However, one is never prepared for the void left to deal with. It takes time to shed that pain and grief, but I can feel it happening a little more each day. It is my faith in the grace and mercy of the Lord that brings great comfort. Thanks again for your help, professionalism, and in sharing a chuckle with us. Thank God for a sense of humor. God bless you all. Carol & Phil Read more
