‘Death: It’s a Living’ was received very well by most in the funeral profession. Finally a program focused on the funeral profession that doesn’t make us all want to crawl into a hole.

Though there was a lot of focus on price I do feel the profession was shown in a good light and best of all the consumer was given very good information to help them make an informed decision.

I wish that CNBC would have looked into the payment options available for families when faced with paying upfront for funeral goods and services. Traditionally there has never been payment options available, its was check, cash or credit card, but now with companies like Funeral Finance, LLC, funeral homes can offer client families easy to understand financing options.

Here are some of the comments made by funeral professionals during the ConnectingDirectors.com live chat and on Twitter using #deathitsaliving:

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. 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.
