I can answer any questions regarding funeral planning, grief, alternatives to burial, embalming, natural burial, products and ideas how to make a funeral service or memorial service more meaningful and personal. I can't answer questions regarding legal issues, financial planning and what happens after we die.
I am a licensed Funeral Director in the state of California with 10 years experience.
B.A. from the University of Colorado AA from the San Francisco College of Mortuary Science, now part of the Sacramento Community College program
I hope to inspire and encourage people to think more creatively when it comes time for funeral planning. It is a difficult time and the path of grief can be easier if you let your creative juices flow. A meaningful and personal event is memorable.
There are many new ideas and inventions on creative memorialization. Funeral Directors are event planners and need to be marketing all the options available to grieving families.
well, embalming is definitely controversial. The damages to mother earth are beyond our comprehension.
