Tip of the Day for June 29, 2012
Life goes on!
It does, really….even when someone passes away….life goes on! I don’t mean to sound unsympathetic…..BUT…..when someone you love has died, the clock does not stop, for you or the rest of us, unfortunately. You must still make funeral arrangements and anything else that needs to be done. It is not our fault (the funeral home or the staff) that your loved one passed away. Again, we are trying to HELP YOU! There are certain things that as a funeral home that we simply CANNOT do for you. Such as, apply for State aid. We are not allowed to! Believe me if we could, we probably would be doing it for everyone who applies. I didn’t make up that rule/law so I find it extremely rude that I/we get treated with such disrespect because, as you put it, “how can you take advantage of us at a time like this? how can we be expected to do all of this (meaning, plan a funeral, apply for state assistance, and PAY THE BILL!) ? Really?
So, my answer to that question….the questiond being “how can we expect you to do any/all of this”?
I/we do not expect you to do ANYTHING!
However if you want a funeral, apply for assistance, etc…. then you need to realize that you are yelling at the wrong people!
Life goes on…….!
