  1. Hi Anna,

    I’m so sorry I did not see a message on my facebook page. I hope that I can assist you in some way.

    Happy Holidays and wishing you the best.

    Most Warmly,

  2. Hi Elizabeth,

    I can put you in touch with INELDA who are death doulas. Where in Massachusetts are you located?

    Hope you have a lovely day.

  3. Hi Bill,

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m sure your community is very fortunate to have you in the area. Where abouts are you? I am always looking for great funeral directors around the world!

  4. A colleague offered your book to me and I read it over this past weekend. I am a 32 year licensed funeral director that still believes that if you serve families and your community properly with their wishes, interests and needs as a priority… revenue etc. will take care of itself. I believe that you would agree Elizabeth.
    I thoroughly enjoyed your book. I wish I lived in New York so we could have a coffee and I could ask you the many questions I have.
    Good Luck on your mission to encourage people to embrace the inevitable. Thank you for sharing your experience and not completely leaving the industry.

  5. Hi Debra,

    Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! I always find the relationship between nurses and funeral directors to be so interesting. Personally, I have the world of admiration for them as I think their job is so much more difficult! (I cringe and sometimes even faint when I see needles!) Unfortunately, throughout my years of being around so many going through difficult times, I only learned that there is really not much you can say to lessen the pain, you can only support those going through it. Not being able to help those you love is such a painful and unfair experience. All I can say is that I hope you are able to cherish the valuable time that you have with both of your parents. Thank you again for reaching out.

  6. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your kind words with me. I can only imagine how difficult it is to have a parent who is less than “able” for a lack of a better word. I have unfortunately gone through that experience with others, but not with a parent. I wish you as much peace as possible in the future.

    Most Warmly,

  7. I just finished reading your book and wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed it. My Mother (a retired RN) always told me that she wished she had gone into the funeral business instead of being a nurse, and after having read your book, I think she would have been great at it too! I am also the daughter of a Jewish father and Catholic mother (not so uncommon, alas!) and am lucky that both of my parents are still alive. My father is now in the early stages of dementia. We too always had such a nice close relationship (my relationship w/my mother was problematic but not too bad now) and as he “leaves us” with this disease, I dread the day when they both are no longer with us. Anyway, I am going on here when I really only wanted to thank you for this book and for your “taking on” the funeral industry. Bravo!

  8. your book was a wonderful read,,, I was struck by your thoughts about life is too short,,,,definitely too short to resent the only parent u have,, I am in the category of one parent still living although 89, in nursing home, not mentally able to have a conversation with. my dad and I were far from pals, I am thinking hard about your thoughts on this, Congrats on discovering and pursuing your passion
