“In this industry we’re dealing with people at their lowest and most vulnerable
point. We must be mindful and vigilant of the emotions and burdens from death that our families
are dealing with. Grief is truly a heartfelt process. Although we do not consider ourselves to be
grief counselors, as funeral service professionals we aim to make the process of death less
painful as possible.”
