In the News: Burr Oak Cemetery Nightmare

It has been Chicago's breaking news - and everyone's worst nightmare. Gravediggers reselling plots and dumping the remains of bodies in an empty, abandoned lot. It is people like these that give funeral professionals a bad name. You never read articles about a funeral director helping a mother or father get through one of the most difficult times in their lives after losing a child. Those families, whether it is in the middle of the night, during the day, at Christmas, have lost somebody that’s very important to them, and they come to us because they trust us and want the best treatment that they can receive. It’s our job to provide that. I’m fearful because we’ve been so used to be standing in the back of the room doing all the behind the scenes work, that we’ve forgotten to get in front of the people. We’ve forgotten to tell them what it is that we do and why we do it....That we are people helping people.
