Cremation Issues Discussed on A Good Goodbye TV

Jul 21, 2013 | 0 comments

The cremation rate in the United States – the percentage of the population that chooses cremation – has climbed from 15% in 1985, to 31% in 2007, to 42% in 2012. The Cremation Association of North America (CANA) will release their next annual report in early August. It’s predicted numbers will continue to climb.

A Good Goodbye TV looks at cremation issues starting this Monday, July 22 at 2:00 p.m. The discussion includes why the cremation rate in the U.S. has climbed to a national average of 42%, what actually happens in the process of cremation, and options for what to do with cremated remains.

The guests interviewed are Tom Antram, CEO, and Buck Dyck, location manager, both with FRENCH Funerals and Cremations.

A Good Goodbye TV is an educational and entertaining 12-episode series of 30-minute programs with expert interviews on “everything you need to know before you go.”

Host Gail Rubin brings a light touch to a serious subject. Like her award-winning book, A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die, the television program covers information most people don’t know about until faced with a death in the family.
