World Funerary Customs

With the News that Barbara Bush is in Comfort Care in Home Hospice, I thought this would be a good time to re-visit the Philosophy of world Funerary Customs beginning here. This is not a Palace. This is a Mausoleum built in celebration of the Life that was lived.

As a Life & Health Insurance Agent who began my Insurance Career in Life Insurance, what I have found is that there is a time for caring at every stage of the life cycle, including time of death.

We went through this as a family in 2012 when my mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 Metastatic Lung Cancer . I was working in a Cemetery at the time. Even with all of the training I had received, providing Home Hospice Care for my own mother was the most God-awful experience of my life.

Like Mrs Bush, my Mom was very Altruistic - putting the needs of others ahead of her own.

I can tell you that all during that if Mom could have gotten out of that wheelchair all the way until time of death, she would have.

Working in a Cemetery is like walking on Holy Hallowed Ground according to most religious beliefs, including Christian.

Not everyone thinks this way.

As a Cemetery Pre-Planning Counselor, how do you present a Unique Selling Proposition in a way that stirs-up Emotions? This is one sales promotion I wrote back in 2012:

Another was presenting a Gift With Purchase. (From my personal Facebook Page below:)


I may come back later & add more to this but I have a 9:30 meeting this morning.

Have a nice day
