Published in the American Funeral Director - 2014 April
"How can funeral directors educate families about their options, rather than assuming all cremation families just want direct cremation?"
"All of our staff have been coached and equipped by Melanie Loyd of In It For Life in the correct way to present families with their options. It is not selling anyone anything, it's making certain families know you can have a funeral with cremation to follow, have a viewing with family and friends and how important it is to say good-bye before the cremation takes place. Again, it is all in presenting meaningful experiences rather than asking, 'if they know what they want.'"
