On Saturday, June 18, a ceremony was held at Mount Hope Cemetery in Topkea, Kan., to dedicate Carroll Ray “Dink” Mothell’s grave memorial. Mothell, a player in Negro Leagues Baseball and a star for the Kansas City Monarchs, has been buried in an unmarked grave for over 30 years at Mount Hope.

The Society for American Baseball Research Negro Leagues committee has been working to get memorials placed for players since 2004. Their efforts, led by Jeremy Krock, were recently featured on an ESPN segment.

Trigard Memorials donated, designed and manufactured the bronze memorial to honor Mothell. To learn more about the Negro Leagues Baseball Grave Marker Project or donate, visit www.NLBGMP.com. Learn more about Trigard Memorials at www.trigardmemorials.com.

On one hand, there's always something new to learn and try. However, not everything makes sense when it comes to marketing death care companies. We've watched many funeral organizations lose focus on strategy due to the bright and shiny nature of the new tactics that pop up. Tactics come in all shapes, sizes and value levels. Some are new features that are useful and others can be 'shortcuts' that ultimately lead us in the wrong direction. Recent conversations got us thinking, so we wanted to talk about some social media marketing mistakes we see death care companies make, and how they can fix them.

August 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD)
