Loving Wife and Mother
August 18, 1945 - April 2, 2008
As the old saying goes,
ďBehind every good man is a great woman.Ē

bus with Mom.
Thatís especially the case when it comes to this particular funeral home. Without the love, support and patience of one spectacular woman, I wouldnít be where I am right now; doing the only thing I know how to do.
As I write this, the anniversary of her early passing is approaching. I owe everything to my mother. I hope she approves of how Iím handling things.

This business that I am in, the business that my father taught me, the business of funeral directing, or undertaking, is about more than caskets, calling hours and cemetery plots. Itís about more than doing only what is necessary to deal with an unfortunate situation.
Funeral Directors donít just ďarrangeĒ funerals. This is about helping lead a grieving family in the right direction. That direction may be nowhere near where they want to go, but we do it regardless. We are here to make the initial shock of a terrible event somewhat manageable. We provide a place for a community to love and support their friends and family during their darkest hours. We can answer questions that most people donít even think to ask.
We undertake these responsibilities because thatís what we were called to do. This is a business, yes, but itís not about the bottom line on a balance sheet. Itís about helping people during their journey into their new life. Hopefully, at the end of the day, when the cemetery is quiet and the hearse is back in the garage, weíve made a difference.
