"Ryan did a phenomenal job in the attention to detail in honoring our loved one. His genuine care, compassion and commitment to our needs was conveyed immediately as we did not have an appointment to schedule the services. We had an appointment at another local funeral home and upon arriving at the scheduled time, we were told they would not accept insurance. We were told it was decided that money that services would have to paid via cash or credit. Because we were insurance, I asked what we were to do and was told to contact another funeral home. I then contacted Lloyd James Funeral Home and Ryan told me yes, he would be happy to meet immediately and discuss service options. I do not know if he had other commitments that afternoon or not as he took the time needed with us to schedule our loved one's services without causing us to feel rushed. The fact that he saw us immediately was so very much appreciated as I had traveled from Fort Worth."
