Trying (and Failing) To Do It All

September Meeting for Funeral Professionals Peer Support

WHEELING, IL— In any given week, a funeral professional will be an event planner, grief support facilitator, business administrator, hairdresser, driver, phone operator, A/V support, cleaning service, and much more! On September 19, Funeral Professional Peer Support (FPPS) and the Cremation Association of North America (CANA) open the monthly peer support meeting with a discussion on the many roles we have to fill as funeral professionals.

Bill Sampson and Paul Daigle are co-owners of Belvedere Funeral Home in Charlottetown, PE, and know what the stress on a local firm is like. They have a combined 65 years of experience in funeral service after finding their passion for the work in high school. Together, they will facilitate the September Funeral Professionals Peer Support Meeting to discuss the pressure on funeral service professionals to do it all: celebrating the successes and getting through the failures. 

Be sure to join us for September’s peer support meeting as Bill Sampson and Paul Daigle lead the discussion on trying (and failing) to do it all. Bill, Paul, and your funeral professional peers gather Tuesday to talk about these stresses. Whether or not you have a pressing issue to discuss, the meetings are a valuable place to offer support to your colleagues! 

Join in to discuss your frustrations, stresses, and the many hats you wear with your peers on Tuesday, September 19, 8pm ET / 7pm CT / 5pm PT via Zoom link at Students, apprentices, and interns are welcome.
