PEOPLE • Thomas Lynch
Thomas Lynch is a man who needs no introduction. He’s well known—even famous, though he’d certainly argue that—in undertaking, poetic, and literary circles. Lynch is the author of twelve books, consisting of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. His work has been the subject of two documentary films, one of which won an Emmy Award – and he’s here with us and even shares a poem from his upcoming book!

PLACES • Funetorium – All Things Funereal
Attila Bethlenfalvy, creator and founder of FUNETORIUM, arguably knows more about funerary antiques and ephemera than any person alive. His collection of funeral memorabilia is certainly one of the largest in the world. FUNETORIUM boasts over 40,000 followers on Facebook and we have an exclusive interview (by Todd Harra) and loads of eye candy that you won’t want to put down!

PASSIONS • Todd Harra
“It’s such an honor to be able to walk with people during their time of need,” said Todd Harra, vice president of McCrery & Harra Funeral Homes and Crematory in Wilmington, Delaware. “But I never pictured myself doing this.” Harra has deep roots in the profession, but not in the traditional way of many multi-generational funeral directors. Unique circumstances, and fate, led him to a writing career that now climbs the best-seller lists backed by his experiences and storytelling wit.
