When your healing journey is complete—whether that is a month, a year, a decade, or a lifetime—then we see our job complete. A Life Celebration® is the most healing service because it is all focused on your loved one’s life. ...It starts your healing journey off in a positive direction as many families learn new things about their loved ones from other family members, friends, coworkers, classmates, and strangers that sustain them through the hard days. Once the funeral is over and you go home, we still care and are there for you. We will send you messages on particularly hard days and invite you to healing events such as our Día de Los Muertos Fiesta, Mother’s Day Butterfly Release, and Holiday Candlelight Service to stay connected. We also provide you and your family with access to 24/7 grief counselors that are there on the bad days or if you just need to talk.

We put these items together in a unique display that memorializes their loved one and brings hope and healing to friends and family. You’ll be amazed how these displays become the focal point of his or her memorial service, encouraging guests to talk and reminisce together about all the times they shared with that special person and remembering the wonderful qualities he or she possessed that they will cherish forever.

Here Are Some Experiences from Our Families...
"Stephanie Hughes was a wonderful help!!
When my father passed away and after calling four different funeral homes, Stephanie was the only one to answer in the middle of the night. She allowed us to actually relax in the sense that we did not have to worry about how my dad would be treated after leaving the hospital.
They truly believe in making it a family tribute center. My family and I have never been more impressed by their attention to detail and the personalization they put into honoring my dad.
The team and Stephanie was a Godsend!! No one wants to plan such arrangements but Stephanie made it very easy and kept in contact with us throughout the whole time."
Leticia G., Dallas, TX
"Stephanie Hughes took amazingly well care of us and most importantly our loved one. The whole staff was welcoming and supportive throughout this emotional process. Thank you Hughes Family for making this already difficult time just a little bit easier for us. God Bless you all for what you do."
"Family run funeral home with an amazing staff. This funeral home truly is family oriented. They know how to work with a family and love them through a difficult time.
I've been blessed as a Bereavement Doula to work alongside them to help multiple families with arrangements and start the process of learning how to grieve. They are such a blessing in a very dark time. Stephanie has a heart like no other and will love your family as if they are her own. I will always recommend Hughes Family Tribute center over others in the field."
"The Hughes family was amazing for both my father's service in 2016 and my mother's service in January of 2018. Stephanie paid incredible attention to detail and helped me through the process quickly.
DeWayne, Ryan, and Kristine were all involved and so helpful as well. My family is so grateful that we were placed in such great hands with the Hughes family. They made a very difficult and sad time so much easier.
They are well connected with the policies and procedures at DFW National Cemetery and many of the churches in Dallas which were a great help!
Thank you Hughes family for all your care and concern."
I’d like to extend a big, heartfelt THANK YOU to Stephanie Hughes and her family for taking care of my father and our family during such a difficult time. My father passed on December 23, 2017...right before Christmas, yet the Hughes family worked diligently to get things organized and ready for us and never made us feel like we were there at a bad time because of the holiday. The outcome was absolutely amazing!
My dad would have been awed by the wonderful arrangements set up for him. Stephanie took some information from us (his likes, passions, hobbies) and ran with it. When we walked in, I was taken by surprise with the detail and effort they put into his setup. Not only was it hands down the best set up and arrangement I’ve ever seen for a wake/funeral, they were also the best price in the city.
When we called around the day of my father’s passing, there was a sense from other establishments that they were trying to take advantage of the situation for extra profit. I never felt that way from the Hughes family and there was clear transparency in their pricing. I would definitely recommend the Hughes Family Tribute Center to anyone having to go through this difficult time.
