I attended Lauren’s training for home funerals in August of 2015. It enhanced my business by giving me the knowledge I needed to add “home funeral guide” to our services at The Good Earth. Lauren also gave us the inside view of the funeral industry. How it began, how it runs. I highly recommend this workshop! -Shelia Champion The Good Earth Green Burial Ground
