Funeral directors and funeral home owners constantly strive to improve themselves for their community and the families they serve.
Unfortunately, they don’t often get the recognition they deserve. That’s why Frazer Consultants regularly features the accomplishments of funeral directors and funeral homes in our Funeral Home Happenings blog. See what your peers and colleagues have been up to lately!
If you or someone you know deserves recognition, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to feature you or them in our next installment of Funeral Home Happenings!
