The Funeral and Death "Business"

I learned that death was a "business" when I buried my brother Paul Richardson who was murdered by gun violence in 1995. Emotion had to take a back seat and I put on my purchasing agent hat.

Burying your loved ones is a "business"...somebody is making money. Don't forget that. 

You need to be prepared BEFORE you have to bury your family member. Be smart now so that you will know what to do when death comes. We have to stop being "afraid" of talking about death. Death is apart of life and the economic system.

I found the below video and it resonated with me. People dying is a "business". This is a sad truth. (Update: the video was removed because it was too real about the rip-off of the funeral business)
