Saying Goodbye to 2012

images-1Once again, my mentor and friend, Todd Van Beck opens up his soul and shares a great story.

I sure do wish our paths crossed more often as it has been 4-5 years now since we sat down together for a meal (and a few drinks). I have said it before and will say again; I cannot imagine having stayed in funeral service for the last thirty four years if it had not been for Todd.

I doubt that I am the only one that feels that way.

Goodbye to 2012

“2012 was an interesting year for our great & noble profession. Once again the tragedies of life thrust funeral professionals not in the limelight, but in the quiet service light, and once again funeral professionals did their jobs with quite diligence, gentle persistence of purpose and of course the six keys in funeral service: respect, dignity, honor, care, concern and compassion”…Todd Van Beck
