Funeral homes are not just for funerals anymore

Our assistant manager Bryan McAdams (left) chats with Dr. Bill Bass (center) and Frank Murphy (right) before the meeting.

Last night our chapel was the site of the FBI Knoxville Citizens Academy Alumni Association meeting. We had the pleasant opportunity to meet the FBIKCAAA president Frank Murphy in January. He interviewed our manager Eric Botts about cremation for his community information program on our local Journal Broadcast Group radio stations. It was a fantastic opportunity to provide accurate information on a topic that is rife with misinformation, and Frank did a great job on pulling out details in the interview. So when Frank contacted us in need of a free location for a presentation by Dr. Bill Bass, founder of the Body Farm, we were more than happy to make our chapel available for the FBIKCAAA meeting. We’re proud of our beautiful facility and have put a lot of resources into being a state-of-the-art funeral home. As a matter of fact, our beautiful grounds are often used for prom pictures and even wedding pictures. Funeral homes are not just for funeral anymore!
