    I’m Free
    by Shannon Lee Moseley

    Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free.
    I’m following the path God has chosen for me.
    I took His hand when I heard Him call;
    I turned my back and left it all.

    I could not stay another day,
    to laugh, to love, to work or play.
    Tasks left undone must stay that way;
    I’ve found now peace at the end of the day.

    If my parting has left a void,
    then fill it with remembered joys.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
    Oh yes, these things, I too will l miss.

    Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
    look for the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My life’s been full, I savored much;
    good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.

    Perhaps my time seems all too brief;
    don’t lengthen your time with undue grief.
    Lift up your heart and peace to thee,
    God wanted me now – He set me free.

    Words cannot begin to express my sorrow.
    May your heart find peace and comfort.
    May you be comforted by the outpouring of love surrounding you.
    There really are no words for such an unimaginable loss. You’re in my thoughts, prayers and my heart.
    Much love at a time of great sorrow.
    Your friend,
    Shari Wooley-Mosier

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
