After four years, Undertaking LA Funeral Home is closing its doors.

This sounds like a death knell, but closing is actually a re-birth, a growth spurt, in short- a good thing. I have learned so much from Undertaking LA, and I'm ready to use those lessons to create a brand new funeral home, opening in Los Angeles (pending licensing) at the end of the summer 2019.

To be clear, our transparency, environmental focus, and dedication to family involvement will remain the same. The new organization will have boring (but necessary) upgrades like software, community outreach, and search optimization. Our goal is to grow into a truly ethical and sustainable funeral model that young entrepreneurs around the country can implement in their own communities. We have to be smart to grow.

I know these announcements can sometimes be damage control for business failures or dramatic falling outs, but that's not the case here. Our whole team is moving forward with either the Order of the Good Death or the new funeral home. Nor are we all of a sudden flush with cash or corporate backing, this is still a grassroots effort.

Name and opening announcements will be coming soon. This has been in the works for awhile, and I couldn’t be more thrilled that it is happening. The future of death care feels closer than ever. If you follow our social media accounts, you're already in the right place! Your continued support, ideas, and advocacy in your own lives are what will make the death revolution a reality.

I'll see you very soon,
