Member Spotlight

Let me start off by saying that I believe each of us are put on this earth for a purpose and are placed in the profession in which we belong for a purpose. I love the funeral profession. Over the years I have swept parking lots, cleaned toilets, washed cars, cut grass, painted, generally maintained physical facilities, worked nights, weekends and holidays. I have seen the best and worst in people at one of the most difficult time of their live and I have missed a lot of events with my family and have “been so worn out and depleted physically and/or mentally I could barely function and have prayed for the phone not to ring again…….but it all comes with the territory we call being a Funeral Director and Embalmer….and I love it.
