Many of us – from childhood onward – think of Spring as a new beginning. It's a perfect time to clean house, reexamine our priorities, renew our faith and decide to spend more time with people important to us. (Mother's Day always serves as a powerful reminder on that last count.) This opportunity for a springtime surge of energy & effort is especially powerful in deathcare. After all, the 1st quarter is far and away the most hectic time of year for most funeral homes and cemeteries.
