We recently learned of the death of funeral consumer advocate R. Brian Burkhardt. His death has left a void in the area of funeral consumer education and news. Well, as it turns out, that void has been filled rather quickly.
Mark DeSteffan, who has created a bit of controversy with his on-going funeral business memoir The Business of Death, has turned his attention to the consumers. His new blog, Funeral Consumer Advocate, is already examining casket choices and sales tactics of funeral directors. I will be curious to see if he raises as many eyebrows with his latest endeavor.
