Spot on!

The episode relating “Groundhog Day” to what we’re all experiencing with this Shelter in Place order due to Covid-19 is spot on! Truly need to remember we’re in unprecedented times and to have some empathy for those around us. Thanks for the reminder Nicholas!

We need to be more open

We need to be more open about the aspects of death and the loss of a loved one. Even as a funeral professional I find myself needing to be vulnerable about what we encounter on a daily basis. This podcast is a huge stepping stone to guiding people to healing and understanding. Looking forward to seeing the tremendous breakthrough this podcast brings families during their times of grief.
