Only a couple of days after I gave you my thoughts on what new companies might be winners in the death care profession I stumbled across an article from Forbes entitled, “The Future of Death Tech”. Today’s afternoon edition of Funeral Director Daily brings you that article as well as information on an apparent financial settlement in the Aimee Stephens Supreme Court work rules case, and an update on the always popular Wreaths Across America day at Arlington National Cemetery.
This article in Forbes from author Cathy Hackl brings forth what she identifies as a movement in technology and the environment as it concerns the death care industry. She gives her opinions on what companies may benefit from what she sees as those trends in our profession.
This article from a Detroit business news publication appears to conclude that a financial settlement has been finalized in the civil rights case of Aimee Stephens vs. The Harris Funeral Home. According to the article it appears that a $250,000 financial settlement is in the works.
This article explains that Wreaths Across America is still on thanks to a President Trump tweet. However, instead of decorating about 267,000 graves on one day, the cemetery is going to have the volunteers do the decorating over a weeks time to allow for a COVID-19 density allowance among the volunteers.
