Death may be inevitable, but how you actually dispose of your body isn’t, and there are quite a few creative options out there for you. Some alternatives to traditional burials boast positive environmental effects, while others allow you to creatively think beyond the ho-hum traditional burial or cremation.
Yes, you read that correctly. Whether you realize it or not, your business, as a supplier in the death care profession, is also a media company. It’s 2016 and you’re not just a product pusher anymore. You’re not just a distributor. You’re now in the eyeballs business.

WILBERT FUNERAL SERVICES HONORED TO PROVIDE BURIAL VAULT AND INTERMENT OF FORMER FIRST LADY NANCY REAGAN
Wilbert Funeral Services in Parsons, Kansas was called upon to provide the Wilbert burial vault and interment of former First Lady Nancy Reagan in her place of rest beside her husband, President Ronald Reagan. The Parsons facility, also the headquarters of Wilbert Memorials, provided the same for President Reagan in 2004 at the request of Service Corporation International (SCI) which arranged the services for both the president and the first lady.
Cremation has always been the ugly duckling of the funeral profession… at least to funeral professionals. Sure, we offer the option to our families, and we happily walk them through any and all questions they may have about the process. But, at the same time, many of us still secretly curse under our breath every time we get a call requesting our cremation prices.
