Holiday cards are arriving, and so is the December issue

The December issue of ICCFA Magazine has already arrived at my house--it made it before the end of November! Of course I already know what's in it, but I still enjoyed looking again at the photos of the wonderful ethnic gardens at Rose Hills Memorial Park & Mortuary in Whittier, California, and the unique Greek section recently opened by Curlew Hills Memory Gardens in Palm Harbor, Florida.

There's also a wonderful story by Leslie Elvig, daughter of Past President Paul Elvig, about attending a visitation and funeral in South Africa. Todd Van Beck continues his series on dealing with the media, and Nancy Weil offers advice on planning a remembrance service--which doesn't have to be held at Christmas, by the way.

Magazine delivery dates vary quite a bit, depending on the local Post Office. All ICCFA staff members except Midwesterner Julie Burn live in Virginia, and we get our magazines on different days. So if your issue hasn't shown up yet, it may be because the volume of holiday cards is keeping your mail carrier busy. But it should be there soon!
