K.M.Smith TV ad - A Funeral is for the Living

Over the coming months we will be rolling out new TV commercials with messages we think are important to consider regarding funerals. Our first ad posted here has a particularly important message that everyone should consider when planning or pre-planning a funeral: Even though you may not want a 'big fuss' made of your funeral, sometimes it is important to consider what a funeral provides for those you leave behind... Your friends and loved ones require a sense of closure so that they can remember you, accept their loss, and then move on with their lives. This is why a funeral is more than just for the deceased, it is just as much for the living.
