This Saturday is National Funeral Director and Mortician Recognition Day, an important occasion for us here at FrontRunner Professional. While it is pretty awesome that an entire day is dedicated to celebrating the lovely men, women and families that sacrifice their lives to help others, we like to show our appreciation all year-round. So, we have decided to put together a short video thanking funeral directors for all that they do and showing our appreciation.
Getting a chance to work closely with so many funeral homes across North America and the world is a true blessing. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank each and every funeral director for their service to families, role in their communities and helping to make our world a better, more caring place. In addition to the video, we thought it would be a good idea to share a few more things we love about funeral directors and say some more thank you’s. if you have something wonderful to share about being a funeral director or about a funeral director in your community, let’s keep it going in the comments below.
Being Available 24/7
No matter what, you can count on a funeral director to be there whenever they are needed. And for families that do require their services, it is a wonderful thing to know that they will be there during difficult times to help.
When everyone else sets aside time to take a break from it all, funeral directors get up and put their work suit on. It is a unique thing to be needed constantly. I mean Superman became famous for not taking holidays, but funeral directors don’t either. It’s true what they say, not all heroes wear capes.
Long Nights and Short Weekends
Much like holidays, when everyone else is done their work day or finishing up their week, funeral directors are ready and willing to step up to the plate for their communities. There is no such thing as a guaranteed night off or long-weekend. And for that, funeral directors deserve a big round of applause.
Missing Out On Your Own Family’s Events To Be There For Others
One of the most selfless and admirable parts of a funeral director’s job, is to set aside their own family to be there for others. It is definitely something worth celebrating that there is a group of people ready to sacrifice their own family time to provide much-needed services.
Being Integral Parts Of Your Communities
Whether it is hosting community gatherings, donating to charity, volunteering time or any other form of contribution, we work with funeral homes who do truly amazing things for their communities and service areas. In addition, we hear from community members all the time how much they have been positively impacted by the funeral home near them. Keep up the great work.
Inspiring Us and Making What We Do Worth it
Last but not least we must thank you for inspiring us, here at FrontRunner, to do what we do each and every day. Without hard-working funeral directors, our job would not be nearly as rewarding. Knowing that we help funeral directors in turn help the families makes every day worth it.
