  1. Troy was a gentleman that I’ve known 46 yrs. He and his wife were also clients of mine who bought oriental rugs from me in St. Louis I also was at an auction in 92 and got him to purchased that grandfather clock from the peacock estate. So many times at their home and also when I first met them at the old Plaza I managed. What a kind man. God rest his soul.

I was so impressed with the entire staff.  They knew the answer before we asked the question.

Hansen-Spear made a very uncomfortable loss in our family more easy to accept and cope with. Been to other funerals and these guys are way ahead of the game. Top […]
