Letter to the Editor â€“ Star Telegram
I would like everyone to know that the cost of a funeral does not have to be out of reach and place a financial burden on a family at a time when conservation of savings for the surviving family members is a major concern. Recently my brother passed away unexpectedly. His death was a shock to the entire family, and we were totally unprepared for making funeral arrangements. The only bright spot in our sorrow was finding Bob Davis and his staff at Budget Caskets and Davis Funeral Home who made it possible to have the dignified service we wanted at a very reasonable cost. The funeral service was held at Davis Chapel in North Richland Hills, and a graveside service at Shannonâ€™s Rose Hill Cemetery for the cost of just a graveside service at other funeral homes.
Mr. Davis and his staff were very professional taking care of all the arrangements necessary including the selection of a beautiful maple wood casket at a fraction of the cost of my fatherâ€™s mahogany casket purchased seventeen years ago. Mr. Davis also helped us contact a real estate broker to purchase a cemetery plot at Shannonâ€™s Rose Hill Cemetery where our father is buried. Bob Davis and his staff were most compassionate through this very difficult time for our family and yet helped us avoid emotional over spending.
Everyone should know that Bob Davis and his staff at Budget Casket in Fort Worth will provide you with a dignified funeral/memorial service at a reasonable cost. Our sincerest thanks to Bob and his staff for the kindness shown to my family in dealing with my brotherâ€™s death.
Patty Irons and the family of Robert Morrow, Arlington, TX
I spoke with a Mr. Carter at the Star Telegram explaining my letter. I did not get a real good feeling that the letter would be published as I wrote it. He said they may put something in Cheers and Jeers column. He could not state for a fact that anything would be published nor when it would be. I asked him if he notified us if it was published and he said no. So I guess we will just make sure to look in the letters to the editor and Cheers and Jeers column to see if it gets published.
Feel free to post my letter to your website and also in your office if you want. Again, we cannot thank you enough for the support and dignity you and your staff showed our family in the loss of our brother.
