    I met Louise in April, 1969 at Central Bank & Trust, Farmers Branch, TX. She became a very good friend to me, and we had some great times together. She was someone you could depend on,

    What an awesome lady with an incredible smile. She always made us feel loved, welcomed and special. Whether dancing, camping or just visiting she knew how to bring out the best in all of us. Comforting to know that she is reunited with those gone before but sad to know we will not get our Louise hug. God bless and keep her family. We will see her again someday.

    So enjoyed our lunches together where she always brightened our day with her cheerful outlook on life. And loved the home baked cookies she shared. Her simple kindnesses will not be forgotten.

    I was saddened to hear of the the demise of Louise. For several years before Ed passed away, he and Louise would attend both Webb Chapel and Louise’s Church. What a joy they were. My heartfelt condolences to the family.

    I will always treasure memories of Louise and her family. I came to know the Nuttall’s through Louise and so many memories from there. She was always interested in anything I was doing. She was so vital and invested in her life. Love to Marsha and Craig. Thank you so much.

"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."

"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
