    The Werner’s were my neighbors when they lived in Orange. I couldn’t have asked for better neighbors and friends. We even attended the same church, St. Francis. I missed them when they moved, and am saddened by Jim’s death. My deepest sympathy to Marilyn, their children and grandchildren.

    Dad, how do I say goodbye to someone who made me feel safe and so comfortable in your presence? You were a good man with so many good qualities.
    As a grandpa, whenever you visited us in New York – you left a freezer full of food, cabinets bursting with the kids’ favorite snacks and hearts full of love for their Texas grandpa!
    You loved your grandkids but what endeared you most to me was your love for Marilyn. I can only describe it as fierce – you loved her, protected her and admired all of her wonderful qualities.

    As a parent and father-in-law – you guided us in a firm and confident way that allowed all of us to shine when we were along side of you.
    I will miss you.

"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. Thank 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
