West Texas Funeral Directors Association Names FDLIC Sales Company of the Year

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

Midland, TX--Funeral Directors Life Insurance Company (FDLIC), based in Abilene, TX, was named as the Sales Company of the Year at the West Texas Funeral Directors Association (WTFDA) meeting. FDLIC President and CEO Kris Seale accepted the award on behalf of FDLIC's board of directors, officers, and staff.

"FDLIC was nominated and selected because of the company's continued support of the West Texas region and all seven regions of the TFDA (Texas Funeral Directors Association)," stated Bill Vallie, general manager of Sunset Memorial Gardens and Funeral Home in Odessa Texas and previous President of the TFDA. "Normally this award goes to an individual Supplier of the Year. But this year, we have selected FDLIC as the Sales Company of the Year."

Bill Vallie presented the award to Kris Seale at the WTFDA Meeting on May 1st in Midland, Texas. "I have known the company since the beginning," Vallie continued. "I knew all the founding funeral directors in the early '80s. And throughout all these years, the company has never lost sight of its primary goal, which is to serve funeral directors and meet the needs of funeral homes. FDLIC is being named Sales Company of the Year particularly because of the generosity and financial assistance the board of directors and Kris Seale were kind enough to extend to the TFDA during a time of hardship for our organization. I am convinced that if it had not been for volunteer funeral directors and FDLIC, the TFDA would probably not be in existence today. We are now financially stable and strong in large part because of the support of FDLIC."

Kris Seale was humbled and honored by the designation. "This company was founded by funeral directors to serve funeral directors. We believe in the TFDA, its mission, goals, and the funeral directors they serve. FDLIC will continue to support and uphold the mission of dedicated funeral service professionals throughout Texas and the nation. It is part of our mission to be known as 'the leading provider of service to the funeral industry.' We are grateful and honored by this recognition and hope to continue to be of service to our friends in the funeral profession."

FDLIC, rated A- (Excellent) by A.M. Best Company, is a legal reserve life insurance company which specializes in the sale of insurance-funded preneed funerals.
