    I have a beautiful book set that Denise gave me to celebrate my first born daughter. I’ll cherish it even more now and remember her every time I read it. She was such a wonderful human and brought such warmth and laughter to all that she knew. She will definitely be missed.

    Denise will always hold a special place in my heart. I will never forget all the times I would go and spend time making crafts together. Your Mom was always smiling and full of joy and I loved coming to see y’all. You BLESSED my life and I will forever be grateful. Denise, you will be missed but I have no doubt that you and your Mom and laughing and cutting up together. I love you all with all my heart and will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Your cousin, Lynda

    I spent 16 hours in a car with Denise just a few weeks before she passed. It was a wonderful road trip! We spent the entire time talking, catching up on over 35 years of history for both of us. I know it was definitely God’s timing for that trip to happen, and I will absolutely cherish that time I spent with her. Beautiful person, now a beautiful angel !

"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.

"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
