I Despise the Legacy Death Brand

In my humble opinion, the owners of the Legacy death brand1 are a bunch of thugs profiteering off of people’s grief in every way they can.

I just noticed that my blog post celebrating the life of Peggy Hubbard had received 3 hits today. I re-read the post and clicked on the link to the guestbook of remembrances from her funeral. It has been archived, and you get this message:

No, it’s really a vulgar and insensitive way for Legacy to make an easy $80! I find this despicable. The death corporations in this country are simply vile in my opinion.
