Four Resources to Prepare for a Successful Have the Talk of a Lifetime Month
November is Have the Talk of a Lifetime Month. As families and friends gather for the holidays, funeral homes across the country are encouraging them to “have the talk” and discover what matters most to the people who matter most. The information families discover will lead to more meaningful memorializations when the time comes.
