imageThe facelift business just got a boost from an unlikely place – funeral homes. More and more people are asking mortuaries to do more than fix hair and makeup.

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
