Lacy Robinson

Language: English

Description When the U.S. economy cratered in 2008 it forced people to become more budget conscious, and as a result more resourceful and creative in terms of memorializing loved ones. In some cases, the funeral director was cut out of the equation or left on the outside looking in. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Join Lacy Robinson as she helps you discover how you can reposition your role and partner with the DIY family members that want to work behind the scenes to bring additional value to their loved one’s life tribute event.
