"We never want to talk about death but it is most certainly something we will face sooner or later. Luckily my parents are of a different mind-set and had taken care of all the final arrangements down the minimal of details, so there was no stress on the days following my dad’s passing. I had just returned home to Texas a few days prior to his passing. La Vista staff contacted me and asked if I would like to use their Hacienda Hall for a family private viewing of my father. At first I was unsure. They suggested I sleep on it. The next day, I said yes. It is a time that I will cherish forever. My husband and I got to visit with my dad one final time before his mass the following day. The Hacienda Hall was absolutely beautiful, cozy, even heavenly, not sad or cold and impersonal like your average funeral viewing rooms. They facilitated a very special final good-by with my dad whom I love dearly. I’m deeply grateful for every little detail La Vista took to make our experience in my dad’s final send off perfect. Thank you for doing what you do."
