Few other modes of business have to deal with emotion and grief as the Funeral Industry. People are not themselves during the loss of their loved ones, they can be wrought with emotion, even angry and confused. The death of a friend or a family member is always hard and when the arrangements need to be made, many people have never had to cope with the responsibility before.
