Going Green: Your Last Heroic Act of Volunteerism

Award-winning speech for Elizabeth Fournier, Undertaker and Owner of Cornerstone Funeral Services.

But have you given much thought to the ultimate act of environmental volunteerism? You know, the one gift you give after you die? Well, I have, and that’s because, for nearly 30 years I’ve worked in the death care industry.
