Experience is your best resource

Jeff Miller,
Vice President of
Business Development
Recently in my home town of Toledo, Ohio, we experienced the loss of two local heroes in a tragic fire. This kind of incident can be overwhelming for any community, big or small. The planning of a high profile funeral, such as the one for these two local fire fighters, experience can be your best resource.

As funeral directors, cemeterians and burial vault suppliers, we all play a significant role in the planning and execution of a funeral ceremony and community celebration of life. It has been my experience that no one person can effectively plan, manage and execute all that is necessary to deliver a well-orchestrated and seamless service. When we combine our resources, delegate and partner with other professionals, we are more successful than if we tried it alone.

When you have the responsibility of planning a high profile funeral, draw upon the experience of those involved. Be sure to create a detailed agenda and have a well-planned, preliminary meeting with community leaders who will want to be involved.

If you ever run into a situation like this and you need some support or suggestions, reach out. Remember, experience is your best resource. So, feel free to call me at 419.290.7707 or email me at jeffm@trigard.com. If I don't have the answer, I will connect you with someone who does.
