I worked for my grandparents at their funeral home in San Antonio, Texas most of my childhood up through college. My mom and aunt both funeral directors and licensed embalmers worked there too. Each one of my elders broke their own glass ceiling in some form or another.
I started working at the funeral home at 9 years old, first escorting families to chapels, answering the phones, typing prayer cards, and later I would drive on funerals. Summers, I mowed grass at the cemetery.
Later in life, I opened a popular garden store in Washington DC. My new store All Things Funeral, is a treasury of every single skill set and experience I’ve learned in life. I’m so proud to introduce it to you.
This blog is a connection, from me to you, providing:
- creative funeral planning solutions celebrating those entering the afterlife,
- collection updates to our caskets, cremation urns, ash pendants, and pet memorials,
- the latest trends about affordable products in the industry,
- information about our charitable foundations you help support,
- and an entertaining story or two of life growing up funeral.
I invite you to participate in the discussion and leave a comment directly in the post. This is our blog and community to help one another process transitions that occur in life and lead us to a better place.
Thank you for shopping at All Things Funeral.
