“The cemetery is too small for his spirit, but we commit his body to the ground. The grave is too narrow for his soul, but we commit his body to the ground. No coffin, no crypt, no vault, no stone can hold his greatness, but we commit his body to the ground.”
- Dr. Ralph Abernathy

You know the old saying - "The only two things in life that are for certain are death and taxes."
Taxes - We all prepare for the inevitable tax day of April 15. Annually we spend time, money, and personal resources on the preparation of taxes. No one likes it but we all do it.
Death - More and more of us are planning for this inevitability. In a fraction of the time just one year of tax preparation takes you could have you funeral or memorial services planned and paid for.
