Walker Funeral Home's insight:

Let’s have a real conversation shall we? Today, we talk about a LOT of things that we never would have mentioned in polite conversation even 30 years ago. Some of it’s good and some of it’s bad. However, what we don’t talk about very much is death. Sure we might hear about certain celebrities dying, or those horrendous death counts a world away, but we don’t talk a lot about what we experience when someone we love dies, or what goes on when we face our own mortality. Don’t get me wrong, I think we are getting there but there is still a long way to go.
