Use Your Manners: Say Please and Thank You

People are starting to talk about the experience they had working with certain funeral homes by commenting on their (the funeral homes) Facebook wall. What is the next step for the funeral director who is running the site when this occurs? It isn’t that hard, respond with a simple thank you!! A thank you goes along way in today’s society.
