I would be lost trying to find my own information about my possible insurance companies for my needs. Tom Gallion from Sams Hockaday helped me to find the right insurance for me and my husband. I appreciate all his help and he continues to help me for the new year.

I appreciate the fact that Tom came to my home, and went out of his way to find me cheaper insurance. To some people, price does not matter, to me, a widow on a fixed income, it is very important.
