Another Case For Proofreading

An old friend, Fred Kitchens posted this on FB last night. A member of the funeral director tribe, Fred and I go back to the 1990’s when we both were writing  Op/Ed columns for the former Southern Funeral Director/Alliance Magazine.

Here is an example of the front of a service folder that a church printed for a funeral.

It is a new twist on a classic theme and a good example af how one letter can change the meaning of an entire sentence. IMG_0983.jpg

My guess is that Fred had nothing to do with this and the church office prepared and printed it. That being said, somehow, it will end up being his fault, simply because people see us in charge of all the details, even the ones we have no control over.

Another day in the life of a funeral director.
