Funeral Profession Reacts to 60 Minutes Segment “Final Resting Places”
“Attn: Cemeterians & Funeral Directors – Here is a good opportunity to tell your community that dealing with your firm is safe and respectful because tonight / tomorrow the public’s level of trust in us will have gone down a notch. Tomorrow is the time to say something positive. (Good job Paul Elvig!)”
“Whether cemetery or funeral home, independent or corporate, today is a good opportunity to tell YOUR community that dealing with your firm is safe and respectful and explain why. Today is the time to say something positive.
I feel that the national opinion is lower than the local opinion, and here is an opportunity to demonstrate to your local community that your firm is different than these national scandals.
It’s times like these why Ryan, myself and others stress the importance of having a well connected, online social media network so that you can directly communicate to your community. Be proactive on this issue because if it is slow news day, your local media might be trying to “dig something up” in your backyard – take the first step.”
