Awards & Recognition


American Funeral Directors Award 2018

To Andrea L. Brookins, a funeral home is as much for the living as it is for the dead...

More and more funeral directors across the country aren’t complacent with traditional ways of helping families. Instead, many funeral professionals are reaching out to their communities and going beyond the walls of their funeral homes to care for their neighborhoods in meaningful ways.  This became evident as we considered the nominations for our annual Funeral Director of the Year award!


 The many entries we received told stories of death-care professionals’ tireless community involvement, dedication to families and a passion for the industry. We chose three runners-ups to the winner, who will be announced next month. These individuals come from different
parts of the country and are all managing funeral directors, with one
being the owner of a family firm.  Each individual, though, strives to bring something new to his or her funeral home and neighborhoods, serving as an integral part of their 8 communities.
