Thank you to all at Holloway Funeral Home in Oldsmar Florida. You helped my Mom and I in 2016 with my Fathers funeral arrangements and you helped me again in 2018 for my Mom's funeral arrangements. It has taken me over two years to thank you publicly on your website but I wanted to do so, so I finally am. You were so kind, respectful and professional. Thank you again and again. I can never forget you all.
