What inspires me the most are those that have worked hard all of their lives to get to where they are, or were, and now it is time to move on, either by choice or divine intervention. We want to offer them, or their family, a way to “Discover Brighter Horizons” through helping them to move to another place in life, or their family to have less on their shoulders as they have laid them to rest. They have worked hard to gather their lives treasures together, and put many hours of time, effort, sweat, tears and loving memories into their possessions.
