America moves into the Labor Day weekend today which generally signals for our family that Summer is coming to an end and it is “Back to School” time. For us that historically has meant boats off the lake and put into storage for the winter and our two sons heading back to school.
Well, it’s been an unusual summer in that low water because of a Minnesota drought caused us to pull our boats off the lake early. . . although the drought has been broken by several inches of rain over the last two weeks. And, this year is unusual as, after about 22 years of “Back to School”, our youngest graduated from college in May so we have no one to drop off this Fall. . . It just seems a little different.
For Labor Day weekend with Funeral Director Daily I’m cleaning of my desk and putting information that death care professionals might find interesting to look into in this edition. Take a look at what we have put out in information that you may be able to use. Here’s what we have:
