I have never heard of the movie, “The Loved One”…until I read about it on the ‘A Simple, Village Undertaker‘ blog.

The video below was used in a Foundation Partners staff training session, to illustrate some of the stereotypes that people conjure up when they think about going to funeral homes.

It’s sad to say, but it would be my guess that many funeral directors/funeral homes have ‘arrangement scripts’ that aren’t to different from the one in this move clip.
