Has this ever happened to you? When My dad died I was sure that he was trying to tell me that everything was ok from the other side. More than a few things happened and I was sure they were a sign from “Jocko”. He made sure to let me know that he would always be there if I needed him.
These were some of the events that shaped my thoughts about death. I feel that when someone dies they move. Death takes the body, the soul lives on. He would not ever return to our house on Houghton Street. He moved into my heart and the hearts of our family. He assured me that he would always be home if I need to talk.
This is a good article on some of the ways the dead can let you know they are OK from the other side.
Hands up if you want to save time and money. Exactly. (Even if you didn’t raise your hand, you were thinking about it.) Saving money is something that 99% of us want to do. Even the richest of the rich want deals, they just get them on more expensive stuff. Williams River Services will genuinely save funeral consumers money. Williams River Services has been saving folks money for the last 3 years now. With 20 years of experience in the business we know how you can save on all of your funeral needs and services.
We would be foolish to not let folks know how we can help them. The bottom line; We have the ability to shorten your funeral learning curve and help you minimize cost.
Perhaps you’ve never heard of a funeral consultant, but even if you haven’t you probably agree that professional planners are sanity savers. For anything more involved than eloping, for example, many people hire a wedding planner— a professional consultant whose sole job is to plan this expensive, once-in-a-lifetime event. Like a wedding planner, a funeral consultant is professionally engaged but not emotionally attached to the outcome of the event that he plans; he is ultimately responsible for educating you about all the options; he can help you make decisions when you get stuck; and he can help keep you within budget and make sure you don’t forget anything. It makes sense to hire a consultant to plan your wedding; most of us simply don’t have enough weddings to become good at planning them ourselves. The same can be said for a funeral, so why not hire a consultant for this, too? - Dr. Ed Markin

What a great get together I had with Rev. Ken White on Tuesday. I have known the good Reverend now for years. When I worked for the corporate funeral homes in Chester and Ludlow Vermont, I met him at a service for one of his church members at St. James in Cavendish. Or Should I say I thought I knew Rev. White. For over 40 years Ken has been working as a minister and on and off as a funeral professional. As we talked over egg, cheese, and sausage sandwiches, we swapped stories of funeral work that only funeral professionals find funny. He also told me about his business Green Mountain Direct Cremation Services. He showed me what he is doing and I was quit impressed.
We provide a professional, caring and personal service. All of these are included in our standard cremation package:
- Licensed staff available for removal 24 hours per day and 7 days a week
- All required fees, permits and documentation
- One certified death certificate
- A secure, lightweight container for cremation
- Cremation at a fully licensed Vermont crematory
- A fine wooden urn with name and dates
A direct cremation that is truly a direct cremation. He offers this for $1275. No hidden fees, no extras, no add on, no salesman, no nothing. This is a small business owner who gets that not every cremation has to be $3-6,000. When we sat at coffee he gave me a basic run down of how the operation works. Very small and very efficient. He has been doing this for a few years and his business is growing. “This is what my families want.” said Ken.
Green Mountain Direct Cremation Services is by far the best resource to use if you are looking for a direct cremation. The fact that he is a licensed Funeral Director and a man of the cloth makes it a little easier to decide who will do the service if that is what you need.

I love Tumbler.
Here is a great article aimed at middle aged men on the subject of dying. The blog is called Life Styles of the Unemployed. I have been following this blog for about a year now. They have had some great advice. This article is no different. “What I’ve Learned About Dying” cuts though the drama. Time to man up and grab the bull by the horns. Nobody wants to talk about death, but sooner or later someone close to you is going to die. More than likely you have already lost a good friend or immediate family member. Death is the only sure thing in this world. The more you figure out about death now, the better.
