A: My personal mission is to ensure there is always a place for people around the world to celebrate the lives of those they love as well as a place for those bereaved to be guided through their grief to a healthy recovery.
And we provide tools and resources to guide each person on their own grief journey. As good fortune has come my way in life, it feels good to share rather than keep it.
We engage in the uncomfortable conversation of mortality, and normalize it. We empower people to be remembered in the way they want. I firmly believe that we rise as people when we lift others along the way.
