Dear Mr. Day, My name is Kim Friedel, and my family has 6-lots located in Section U. We have had some activity in our group of lots this year; and like other families, endured a great deal of sadness that was compounded with the pandemic. However, in spite of all the complicating circumstances, I want to thank Restland and let you know how kind, professional and caring your Restland family has treated me and my family during these hours. It is easy to become acclimated to our jobs as “what we do”. Your staff, from day one, made the process personal, caring and loving. I do not know how they do it on a daily basis. Kevin Johnson, who is such a credit to your organization, was so wonderful. He was kind beyond words. His knowledge of the system exuded professionalism, patience and understanding. I am certain you already know how special Kevin is and what he brings to Restland. Working with Don Talasek has been a pleasure. Don is thoughtful, honest and kind…always willing to serve one’s every need. His job is difficult also. He must make certain all wishes are fulfilled in a beautiful way that shows the people he deals with that he has their best interests at heart. Don is always willing to give advice when needed and represents Restland in the spirit it was established. It has been a pleasure to work with Don. Lastly, your dear Billie Fields. I asked her for something very special. I did not think it would be possible to fulfill my wish. I should have never doubted the good will of Restland. Within hours, Billie had made my dream a reality. I am so astounded by the willingness of every, single person to put “me” first. Billie is kind, gentle and quietly works to make things happen. I hope Restland appreciates the sincere efforts of these fine people. Kevin, Don and Billie are truly my heroes. I feel so blessed that my family chose Restland for all of us to be placed when our mission on this earth is complete. Each of them; Kevin, Don and Billie, has made a sad journey with each of us more bearable. Kindest regards, KimKim Friedel January 21, 2021
Our experience with Liz Crump at Restland in Dallas was outstanding. She was very patient, knowledgeable, caring and went the extra mile to make sure we were happy with the selection of our future resting place. We appreciate Liz and highly recommend her and Restland Funeral Home. Sandra Y.Sandra Y December 12, 2020
Our brother, John Hulsey, passed away 08/20/2020. On 08/21/20, my sister, Nancy Gray, and I met with Jeannie Kendall and Jessie Crowe to make his arrangements. We absolutely could not have been more pleased with the personal attention we received. Jeannie was so very, very helpful with questions about John, etc. to planning the service and picking out the coffin. Her help made the whole trying situation easier. She was also at the service and made everything perfect. She had listened to everything we said about our brother and it certainly showed. We loved her. Jessie was also very attentive and helpful at the cemetery and even promised to have another relative's gravestone that had sunk fixed. At the service, he could not have been more accommodating. Although we know this is their jobs, they seemed to go above and beyond what was required and we cannot thank them enough. Marianne Kirkwood and Nancy GrayMarianne Kirkwood September 04, 2020
My family and I wish to thank you for guiding us through the planning and overseeing the memorial service for our husband and father. It was so comforting to have friends with us, especially during this time of Covid-19 and your careful, professional planning and execution of the service, both in the Chapel and at the gravesite, was deeply appreciated.Barbara Baker August 31, 2020
I would love to give Mike Day the most high review possible. After fighting with Restland staff since 2012, when our dad passed and, more so when mom passed in April 2019. Their gravesites along the main road have looked horrible for years. The Bennett’s, Moore’s, Cowgill’s and Ellis’ graves are one big group of the Bennett family. After no luck talking to others and getting the runarounds for so long, Mike Day has taken care of it within one week. He listened to us and our concerns. He was so apologetic, letting us know he would take care of it, not giving us promises he couldn’t keep but, assured us he would get it all done, beginning that day. He was the kindest and said he would talk to any of us. We forever will be thankful and grateful for him and what he’s done for our family gravesites this past week. We highly recommend him for any needs or concerns you may have in regards to gravesites or the cemetery. He takes pride in all he does and listens and takes actions until the needs are met. Thank you Mike Day for all you’ve done for us. You’re the best!! The Bennett families: Bennett, Moore, Cowgirl, & EllisPatti Moore Murphree August 28, 2020
Jesse Crowe was very helpful in the burial of my father, Booker Horton Sr. It was a hot day of the funeral so Jesse passed out cold water to the people attending. He also made sure that the date of my father’s death was promptly put on the headstone. He also sent a picture after it was placed on the headstone. I thank him so much for his kindness.

Mr. Kirk Taylor has been there for my family and I whenever we had any concerns about our passed love ones. (Five Stars)Hamid Bayat May 21, 2020
Jesse Crowe and Jerome Speikes were extremely helpful in helping take care of arrangements for my Mother. I was most grateful to the pastor, Dr. Michael Waco, and the piano player who's name escapes me, but who's playing that day was some of the most beautiful I had ever heard considering the venue. They did a great job in a time when my brother and I needed a great job done- thanks to all!!Danny H.
On behalf of the family of Theresa Tran Nguyen we would like to say “THANK YOU” to you and the entire staff at Restland for making our sorrowful event go as smooth as possible. Our first meeting was on March 16th, 2020 for the event from March 19th through March 21st, 2020. You and your team were so helpful with our questions and accommodating with our requests. Thank you Tina for arranging the remarkable rooms for our mom's event; the viewing room and the reception room were exceptional. We could not ask for more. It was very comforting to have your understanding and compassion and we greatly appreciate the courteous shown to us by you and the entire staff. We were touched by the utmost care and respect shown to our mother from the moment the Restland staff came to collect her body at Methodist Hospital. The Staff was very competent, professional, compassionate, and respectful. We were very impressed with his work and he represented Restland well. Thank you to Carlos Black who went out of his way to make things possible for us. Carlos helped us from the beginning with the expedite of the cremation permit to the end with the release of the urn to my father so we can place our mom at her eternal resting place at the scheduled time. Thank you! Thank you to Jennifer Hannon for accepting our many changing requests to add more pictures to the DVD Tribute celebrating the Life of our Mom. Thank you for the suggestion of adding the Vietnamese songs in a separate CD so the songs can play together with the DVD Tribute. Thank you for doing extras and going above and beyond to make the DVD Tribute so beautiful. Thank you to George who came by to pay his respect to our mom and the pleasant chat. Thank you to the driver of the hearse who was very respectful to our mom. He did a wonderful job by giving our mom her last view of the house she used to live in. Each person made a sorrowful event go as smooth as possible. You all did an amazing job. Thank you Tina for all that you do with great compassion and took care of us through this sad process. The funeral arrangement was beautiful. We appreciate all that you do. THANK YOU!Aline Nguyen April 14, 2020
I want to thank Linder Criss for being the ultimate professional and assisting me with planning my funeral arrangements. Ms. Criss was easy to talk to and she didn't rush me into making a decision. She took the time to explain everything in detail; and definitely took my concerns into consideration. I will definitely recommend others to her. My hope is that...when the time comes, I hope that Restland provides my family with the same professionalism provided to me. Paula DenmanPaula Denman January 12, 2020
A friend and I passed by Restland before Memorial Day and were amazed by the sea of flags. The sight was awe inspiring and touched our hearts deeply. What a wonderful tribute to our Armed Forces. THANK YOU!
I want to thank you for your recent help with services for my mother, Anita Garmon. Our Director, Deidra Cunningham was personable, professional, and compassionate. Her assistance was outstanding and she brings great honor and credit to your team and location.Randy M Garmon December 30, 2020
Jeannie and Jesse went above and beyond our expectations on helping with my husband's viewing, service, and burial. We had unique requests which they honored and added their expertise. We were so comforted and pleased by the effort and compassion they instilled. Beautiful people doing beautiful work. God bless you. ❤Vickie L Barnes October 27, 2020
Losing a loved one, especially a mother is something that is very hard to wrap your mind around. Without Mike Day and his team at Restland I’m not sure we would have been able to get everything done. Mike ensured our mother was in good hands and kept us informed each step of the way. Mike, from the bottom of our hearts we are forever thankful for you and Restland!Lauren Brown September 01, 2020

Thank you to the entire staff at Restland for providing our family with the heartwarming, considerate services for our loved one's memorial. Carlos Black and Jennifer Hannon, and Krissy provided outstanding support. During these challenging times with the COVID-19 restrictions, Restland ensured we had a safe family time and a lovely service of honor. Our thanks and appreciation.James Anthony August 14, 2020
Chelsea McKellum provided us excellent service at Restland a few weeks ago. She was very courteous and patient, and had very good knowledge of Restland and your funeral services. She considered our budget in helping us select our plot and services. We will recommend Chelsea to our friends and family!Pat and Christina Payne July 20, 2020
You have the most wonderful woman there name Deidra Cunningham. She went way beyond helpful. She was most professional and caring. Thank you for having someone so wonderfulSheena Carson May 31, 2020
My fathers passing had difficult circumstances, as my brother, and I were hundreds of miles apart. We were all that was left of our family. The covid virus makes things that much worse. Starr went so above , and beyound to make everything happen for us. Not only that, she felt like someone I had always known. Everyone on my fathers side of the family is now at Restland. Thank you Starr for making it go so smoothly. Very profesional, and very warm.kyle llano April 20, 2020
What a wonderful staff! Thank you for all your help. The Family of Arthur and Dorothy Taylor.Debbie R.
We are a family that believes in planning ahead, and Restland helped us take care of all our future funeral needs in the most loving, caring, helpful, and peaceful way I could have ever imagined. We worked with Melissa Preddy who was a true God-send. She was thorough in providing all the information to us and answered all questions, and she gave us options to meet our wants and needs. I learned things I never knew and have a greater understanding and appreciation for the funeral and cemetery industry. I felt at home the moment I met Melissa as if I had known her for years. It was an incredible experience, and if you decide to plan ahead or if it’s “at need”, Restland and Melissa Preddy are the best choice in my book! Thank you Restland, thank you Melissa, for walking along side us in helping secure our future burial/cemetery needs. We are forever grateful. Lydia, Chris, and MaryLydia Henson March 14, 2020
Thank you so much for helping us with Mrs M.'s funeral. I think everything went very well and you and everyone at Restland did a great job. Please thank the organist and the soloist. They both did a great job (especially the soloist).P.D.
