“I enjoy working with people and find it especially gratifying when I have made the entire death experience easier for families. Helping someone through, quite possibly, the most difficult time of their life is something that can be difficult, but rewarding. When a family member approaches me, after the funeral or memorial service, and says, 'Thank you. You made this so much easier on our family.' I cannot think of any other profession I would want to have.”
