Instances of CemOps
I am changing up, from the past on this page. I have enjoyed success and
lifelong associations with those people we have helped, and now move
forward with marketing my books.
In the left hand margin, just below the website page buttons, you will see
images of all 3 of my books displayed. At any time you like, you can click
on the image of the book you are interested in, and that will take you to
Amazon, where you can purchase a copy for your library.
- Book #1, Big Boys Do Cry I wrote this book back in 2008 or 2009
out of concern for the younger set when losing a loved one.
Sharing some of my own experiences, having lost my Father at 15
years of age, I wanted to write a shorter book to reach out to kids
and young adults, offering them some guidance and references so
they can know they are not alone. In my career in the death care
profession, I have seen thousands of cases where during at need
arrangements, the younger group is "protected" from involvement
in the service planning. This is a mistake, to leave them out, they
have something to offer, as well, and should be encouraged to
- Book #2, Your Death Depends On It After a good career in this
industry, having solved many problems in cemetery and funeral
locations, including full remediations of cemetery properties where
discoveries were made, making it necessary to even close a
cemetery location for a time while we finished discovery of issues
and corrected them. Also, closed cemeteries to anything BUT at
need burials, no pre need sales allowed until the cemetery was
basically rebuilt according to original plats and specs per each
garden and grave space. After having done this for a number of
years, I started CemOps, as an industry tool to help prevent the
circumstances that led to these remediations in other locations.
Along the way, I was hired as an expert consultant pursuant to trial
in class action law suits, and some of those memories are also
included in this book. A sort of tell all, if you will, without
threatening anyone while calling out some of the bad behaviors by
a select few.
- Book #3, Painful Avoidance Having little to do with the death care
industry, this book was born out of rightful concern for both
patients and caregivers to those suffering from varying forms of
Dementia. Having shared in the caregiving duties for my Mother,
and now helping my wife through this dark journey with her Mom,
I was emboldened once again, to write another book hoping to
help a growing group of people being affected by this every day.
With millions of people suffering through this disease and millions
more caring for them, for free, I felt any and all information
possible should be shared in a writing made readily available to
this ever increasing populace. And during the end of writing this
book, I was diagnosed with early onset, vascular dementia. Thus,
the changing up of my website to more an information resource
than a service oriented one.
- **** It is my hope the information in these 3 books will be of as
much help as my career in this industry, I so loved. I am now
retired, and have one more book to write, provided this dementia
doesn't impact me before I can get it done. That one will be
written as a 7 time cancer survivor, a disease we have made
remarkable progress on eradicating, unlike Alzheimer's.
