The Modern Mortician meets The Glam Reaper


There is so much controversy over the options that are available for the
end-of-life processes due to differences in legislation, corporate greed and
inaccurate information being put out there to people.

Yes there are a variety of end-of-life options that people can choose from,
but ultimately it all comes down to what choice you and the family make
when planning for the final event. That choice will come as a result of education,
and from people who are willing to educate on the level of true information.

Our interview with Melissa Unfred, known in the funeral industry
as the Modern Mortician, is very informative because as an expert herself,
she gives an overview of what the future holds for the industry.
Melissa offers a whole new perspective on the new technology
that can save our planet from destruction by using green practices
such as natural burials or cremation instead of conventional burial methods. 

I encourage everyone to listen and have an open mind in
the preparation for the final event in life.

Please enjoy!
