PLACES
Hillcrest Memorial Funeral Home in Uvalde, Texas

Hillcrest Memorial Funeral Home is located directly across from Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. On May 24, 2022, the day of the mass shooting, the funeral home sheltered many of the students as they ran for safety from the school. In this issue LeRoy Briones and his staff share their powerful and heart wrenching story of the events of that day and the days that followed.

“I’m so glad LeRoy Briones finally shared his story, and who better than to Southern Calls.

What Leroy and his staff did on that tragic and somber day is nothing less than heroic.”
  – Auden B. Cabello, Photographer and Friend
