Now that the funeral home industry has been around for over 50 years, it’s hard to believe that such a small business still exists. However, if you do a little research and find one, you’ll see that funeral homes are still a thriving industry and a huge part of our economy.
And with that in mind, we decided to take a look at one in Dalton, GA. To be honest, we were a little hesitant. The funeral homes are a little more run down than we expected, but we figured that the people who live there would be pretty busy. We were wrong.
There’s a lot of stuff that we don’t know about the industry, but our research shows that nearly a third of all funeral homes are owned by three or more individuals. So, we thought, if we could find the owner or any of the owners, that would probably be a good lead to find the person who took care of our customer.
Turns out, this is actually pretty easy. There are over a thousand funeral homes in Indiana and about 90% of them are owned by three or more people. In fact, of the two thousand that are owned by a single person and not owned by anyone else, about three quarters are owned by three or more. The owner of the other one is owned by two other people. So, it seems as though most funeral homes have owners who arent that busy with other things.
All of this leads us to the heart of the matter. We’re talking about a funeral home. When you see the word funeral home, most of us immediately think about cremation. But a funeral home is a home for the dead, not a home for the living. So, the second most popular thing to do when you go to a funeral home is not to see the body, but to see the deceased person.
For a lot of people, the idea of seeing a loved one at a funeral home is not something they go for. If you have a loved one that is not going to be there, you will want to leave. Most likely you will want to get a headstone, but you probably didn’t want to go to the church on Sunday. So, the way death is treated at funeral homes is not the way it should be.
The problem comes when you want to do something that you don’t want to do. A funeral is a time to show your appreciation of your loss. Funeral homes are the place where people go to show their love, so why not make it a bit more special? They should be able to afford to do that. They should not be the place to go to see a person that no longer is.
At funeral homes, the last thing that you should do, is to throw a party for a person. Funeral homes are for people who are dying. People who want to let people who are dying know they are still loved, and who will be coming to a funeral for a loved one. In other words, funeral homes are not the place to show your love and appreciation for someone’s death.
That’s what I like about the funeral home. They are places you go to show your appreciation. They are places you go to let people know you are still in their life. You can show your love and appreciation for the person for who you were, for who they were, and for who they are.
I would be lying if I said I didn’t love my funeral home. My family is from the funeral home background, and I am sure I will be the last person they ever see. I will miss them so much.
