Mother’s Day Marketing

As I have done every year since Jake died, I went to the cemetery on Mother’s Day .  It is a very busy day at the cemetery, possibly the busiest day all year.  I understand that the marketing people want to make the most of the day.  There is always a little table set up.  Last year they gave out gift bags.  The year before there was a Mother’s Day cookout (along with free t-shirts).  This year they opted to give out a survey and a rose.


I do not have any better ideas for their marketing team but I do appreciate their effort.  Death is a part of life that is difficult to talk about.  I appreciate their efforts to help grieving family and friends.   I think I will write on the survey that a flower and a survey are better than a cookout at the cemetery but I do wonder what they will come up with for next year.

  1. Wow. I had no idea that cemeteries did things like this. While I guess it makes sense from a business standpoint, it seems like it would make it harder from a personal standpoint. Love to you all.

  2. A cookout and t-shirt?? Seems all they forgot that year is a bouncy house. So odd.

  3. A rose and a sweet card might be more in line…very weird. Thinking of you sweet mama, on mother’s day and all days.

  4. What? A cookout? What were they thinking??? Very strange choice for reaching out. Love from here.

  5. Best advice to the marketing team is to get a new marketing team. The rose sounds nice. Thinking of you.

  6. Unquestionably believe that which you said.
    Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that
    they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take
    a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
