“The whole ceremonial experience, it isn’t for the person who died. It’s for the comfort of the living,” said Ryan Phelps, owner of Hood Mortuary, of the rituals of death.

Rob Hahn works on a headstone at Family Craft Memorials. The business has noticed a trend recently – people are moving away from marble headstones because they are too costly.
