I worked with a gentleman named Ed. He made a sad experience seamless. Other than the support of Family and Friends, Ed made me feel like he was going through this with us. I am soooo very appreciative I found Trident Society and that Ed was our associate. He kept me in the loop with everything that was going on and even helped me arrange to receive a flag for my Dad’s service at the National Cemetery. I can not say enough good things about Trident and Ed other than thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your patience and support. You are a fantastic person, thank you from my Family.
