I have gotten asked this a lot over the years. As a Funeral Director, people would often say, “Why all the secrecy, what all are you doing?” I rarely answered in any detailed manner because the truth is, it is not that we are secretive, we are reverent. Death is sacred, it is so, because death gives everything in life that we hold dear meaning. Without death, one could not possibly understand how precious each moment is.
Most don’t like to think about the finite meaning of life, but we are reminded of this fact daily. Death is a time of transition, not secrecy. But what we do not understand fully is often frightening. I have been honored to walk through and literally “survive” the passing of loved ones with my families over the years.
The biggest secret, may be how woven those families become in our being, as Funeral Directors we hold sacred all that has been entrusted to us.
The unknown can be intimidating, let us help you navigate
