Win a Cremation?

What a strange promotion. If I am lucky enough, I can “win” a free cremation. What’s even more odd… is the image choice for marketing: the below family dancing around after burning a body?

Lawrence Altomare

I still miss my grandfather to this day.

He was always loving & never judgmental. Even if you made a mistake and the worst happened… he would always be there for you. If you accidentally beat someone… he would be there by your side saying, “Lets just finish this together…”

He was someone you could be yourself around; he always knew how to have a good time; he was always the life of the party. He was always slow to anger and somehow knew when to keep his mouth shut. If he did speak, he never yelled – yet his voice always had a deep assertive volume.

I consider myself so lucky to have had him in my life. I love him so much. I know its a stupid thought — but I like to picture him laughing, dancing, and gambling in heaven…
