I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Steve Hawes at Hawes Funeral Home for 13 years, and I have seen the work that they do in person and through the video.
Hawes is one of the last funeral directors I would call a friend. It is a long way from the place where I was a teenager and started my career. I would describe Hawes Funeral Home as a family-owned business, and a very close-knit family.
Hawes Funeral Home is a small business, and I don’t know of a larger one that does this type of work. Hawes does not have a large employee base, it’s just a handful of people who drive up to Boston each week and do what they do. The staff is all over the map, from one person who handles the funeral arrangements to another who does the actual funeral work, like a casket and embalming.
Hawes Funeral Home is a family owned business, but it is also a family. One of my coworkers, who has worked there for over ten years, works as a funeral director, so we often talk about this, and he’s very clear about the family values. The staff is very family oriented. I have no idea what the owners’ beliefs are, but I could not imagine them being anything but as open and honest as the staff.
They don’t have to be, though. If you are thinking about starting a business for family, and you want to keep the family as a focus in your business, the funeral directors are a good place to start.
Hawes funeral home is a great example of the right way to do business. The funeral director in Hawes is very family oriented. Hawes funeral home has a great family feel to them. The staff is very involved in the day-to-day business of the business. I like how Hawes funeral home allows families to be involved in the day-to-day business, but they also have the option to be involved in the decision-making of the business.
Another great example of this is the funeral directors of the new indie game series, ‘The Last of Us’. They are all very family-oriented, and the staff is also very involved in the day-to-day business of the business.
My wife and I are both in our own backyard. But we’ve decided to go with the ‘family way.’ We haven’t had that for a while, but we have.
I like my backyard because it gives me my own space, time, and the chance to grow and do things. It has a lot of space, it also gives me a lot of privacy because I can do what I want without anyone knowing. But one of the most important features is that it gives me the opportunity to be part of the decision making process.
