As we post our final Afternoon Edition before the Labor Day holiday we do so with some articles that are heavily weighted to the cemetery side of the death care profession. In today’s News from the World of Death Care we bring you an article from “The Conversation” that deals with how the cemetery could be “Re-imagined”.
And. . .we have about three other cemetery related articles that deal with Green Burials, the “derecho” damage to Iowa cemeteries, and the cemetery traditions that are going by the wayside in Peru as that country continues to deal with death due to COVID-19.
Have a great Labor Day!!
