I Am a No Show, Thank You!

Intersection of Silver Beach Ave. and Peninsula Dr. is where I am getting to a bridge from the Beachside to Mainland. It is one of our 7 bridges, but this one is close to me, and I use it often.

Every time I stop at the traffic light at this intersection, I see this sign "Hannah Cremation Services. Where quality exceeds cost" and every time I feel proud. It is such a positive message.

Where Quality Exeeds Cost

I feel proud for happy customers, who seem to enjoy the service, and who, obviously, do not complain. And why would they? 

Besides excellent service, they save money for some other important things.

A few years ago the owner of Hannah Cremation Services called me on my listing near her busy hot office and scheduled the showing. To make a long story short, let’s say she was a no show.

When I called, she did not bother to apologize or explain. Her attitude was that I would go and show whenever she wants. I was not so sure about it, so she said she did not like me.

What a relief. Of course, I am missing on a great service at an even greater cost, but I do not complain. I intend to delay this great service, making it my no show...

Jon, it just makes you wonder just what kind of a person this "Miss Hannah" is... running a crematorium.

And then there's funeral directors.  I hear that they're the last ones who will ever "let you down."  Perhaps you'd have better luck with one of them ?

Hope you are well...

Jon, seems like Miss Hannah would be a rather cold individual for a hot business.  The last thing I'd want from someone in her position is this kind of attitude.  I'd be a no show too.

Jon -- am wondering if her quality is really that good, when the "Q" is backwards?  Usually the little things point out the truth.

Maybe that sign is symbolic of how they turn people backwards to cremate them more effectively?  I'm sure that's it.

haha, no show?

Yes, it would be the same for me,

can you fill such application online without talking to any person( particularly the one who 'knows better'), I can not even imagine having such conversation in a place.

To tell you the truth, I told my kids if i pass away and they can use any of my body for organ donation~ they should, the rest should be burned.
