ConnectingDirectors.com did not do a story this past week on Funeral and Cemetery Legislative reform.
Several Funeral Industry Websites are ignoring the Funeral and Cemetery Reform hearing that took place in Congress this past week. Connecting Directors.com did not do a story or even post a news article. FuneralWire.com has no article on the current story,only a mention of the NFDA support letter of 11/13/09. The Bereaved Consumers Bill of rights Act
Now to ignore the biggest story on the Funeral and Cemetery Reform legislation since the revision of the Funeral rule(law) in 1992 is flat out bias. Even Financial trading companies are reporting on the hearings-research.scottrade.com
Congressman Bobby Rush held hearings last Wednesday on Funeral and Cemetery reform- This Legislation will help the Funeral Consumer.

Illinois Burr Oak Cemetery Scandal Heating up the Illinois Governors Race
There is a link posted here to the mindbboggling “Perpetua” Burr Oak Internal Memo- from Silvy Cottton To Employees and or investors.
CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE BURR OAK CEMETERY INTERNAL MEMO FROM 2003
A Friday night report by ABC CHICAGO revealed that The Illinois Comptroller Hynes office had the memo, and was aware of Potential Burr Oak Cemetery body desecration in 2003.
The Memo Clearly points to a Perpetua INC, cover up of known Grave desecration with an effort to hide the info from ILLINOS COMPTROLLER OFFICE EMPLOYEE DAVID FOLEY. Perpetua is a Funeral and cemetery company owner the of Burr Oak Cemetery (Scandal).
Comptroller Hynes Burr Oak Cemetery “not my job” regulating cemetery operations -RESPONSE- is true. he only was responsible for Financial regulation. Still this does not play well with voters. The whole thing smacks of a smear campaign by sitting ILLINOIS governor Pat Quinn.
THE LATEST INFORMATION REVEALS PERPETUA INC AND SLIVY EDMONDS COTTON ATTEMPTING TO COVER UP GRAVE DESECRATION, AND POSSIBLE GRAVE ROBBING at BURR OAK CEMETERY.
Astute lawyers and victims have included Perpetua Inc and Slivy Cotton in their lawsuits.

Rich Miller of the Capitol Fax blog is the best blogger on Politics in the State of Illinois.
There is a new video that proposes making organ donation available to death row inmates. It also proposes making Organ donation a means of execution.
This solution seems to be far-fetched. But if you can get past the creepiness. It will save lives and keep the angel of death away from many.

Many opposed to capital punishment find this a good idea.
It is being reported that State of Illinois Comptroller-Dan HYNES- knew about the Grave Desecrations at Burr Oak Cemetery in 2003.
Evidently Hyne’s Office became aware of Grave Desecration’s at Burr Oak, and his office contacted Silvy Cotton the then 03 Manager of Burr Oak Cemetery
This has been reported by the Capitol Fax Blog and ABC News.
IS THIS THE SMOKING GUN IN THE RACE FOR
CLICK HERE FOR AN ABC VIDEO REPORT.
I reported the Silvy Cotton part of the story on this blog that Cotton was involved with the Burr Oak Cemetery desecration in that she hired the arrested 2009 manager at Burr Oak Cemetery. I also stated she was involved in the Deborah Kellom funeral home Scam in St. Louis that took place at another Perpetua Facillity with a 2009 conviction.
The source of the blog post came from one individual in St.Louis who wished to remain anonymous. THE OTHER SOURCE WAS FROM THE CHICAGO AREA WITH A LOVED ONE AT BURR OAK-anonymous.. Other sources in St Louis, and CHICAGO would not confirm or deny a Silvy Cotton connection to Kellom and Wade Funeral Home or Burr Oak Cemetery.
When threatened by Silvy Edmomds Cotton i retracted the blog because I had 2 sources, that would not back up my Statements. I deleted the post. Here is my Email Exchange with Silvy Cotton,
Google Blogs Alert for: Debora Kellom
Burr Oak Cemetery Desecration Defendants plead Not Guilty …
DefendantCarolyn Towns was originally hired by Silvy Edmonds Cotton, Pereptua Inc. who also hired Deborah Kellom of the Wade Funeral Home Perpetua Scandal. Silvy Edmonds Cotton is a party to the Burr Oak Cemetery Scandal because she is …
YourFuneralGuy – http://yourfuneralguy.wordpress.com/
Your Blog incorrectly states that I hired Debora Kellom and that I am still apart of the Burr Oak/ Perpetua Management. Neither of these statements is true. I have not been a part of the Perpeuta Management team since January 2004. I demand that you correct those statements and will monitor any such future claims. If these incorrect statements persist, I will consider legal action.
Slivy Edmonds Cotton
The Reference in question has been deleted even though there are 2 sources that state otherwise. If there is a chance it is not true it gets deleted..Always.
Joshua Slocum is involved here-that always calls for questions.
Were you a part of Portico LLM Enterprises? Or are they suing you?
What was your connection to Burr Oak? CedarPark?
You are named in the class action Lawsuit-Burr Oak Cemetery Why? I will continue to follow the money in this horrific situation and determine beyond question who is involved.
Reports show Slivy Edmonds Cotton, who remains listed under Perpetua management, and Portico LLM Enterprises took over the Pet Cemetery of Tucson in 2008.
Portico sued the former owner this summer, alleging fraud and misconduct, including selling headstones that were not provided and breaking into Portico offices to delete files.
At Perpetua, Edmonds Cotton oversaw Cedar Park, 12540 S. Halsted St. She told the Daily Southtown in 2000 she was inspired by Cedar Park’s uniqueness and beauty.——-Daily Southtown. http://www.southtownstar.com/burr-oak/1723194,081909perpetua.article
NOW I BELIEVED MY SOURCES AND ALWAYS THOUGHT SILVY COTTON WAS A KEY FIGURE IN THE BURR OAK CEMETERY HORROR(SCANDAL)

It is true that Comptroller DAN HYNES only had the authority to regulate money-BUT WHY DID HE NOT TURN IT OVER TO LAW ENFORCEMENT IN 2003?
Memos and emails obtained by the I-Team reveal that top officials in the Illinois comptroller’s office knew in 2003 there was a problem with unearthed human remains at Burr Oak. And according to a confidential five-page report written by Burr Oak’s CEO in 2003, cemetery officials had reason to believe the grave-selling scandal had already started.
E Mails original to this post from your funeral guy
Pat Quinn told ABC7 Friday night that Hynes needs to come clean on what he knew about Burr Oaks and when he knew it.

Brittany Murphy's Husband plans to sue Warner Brothers
The Young Movie star Brittany Murphy who died December 20th 2009, Husband plans to sue Warner Brothers for kicking her off the set of a movie.
Simon Monjack, Brittany Murphy’s balding, heavy husband (hey, his words, not ours), says he will sue Warner Brothers for triggering a fatal heart attack in Murphy when it dropped her from the sequel to “Happy Feet,” according to the Daily Beast.
“They killed her,” Monjack tells the website’s Gerald Posner. “It’s a cruel town … You’re disposable as an actress or actor.”
Evidently Simon Monjack needs someone to blame. We never q1uite know the day or the hour when we are to leave the earth. Brittany Murphy as dropped from the Net Happy Feet Movie. Death Lawsuits generally complicate the grief process when some one dies. A wrongful death lawsuit is not helpful unless there is a crime involved.

The National Funeral Directors Association NFDA wants non traditional sellers regulated-They even went as far as to name Walmart and Amazon.com. Walmart and Amazon are selling Caskets online.
This was all done in testimony before Congress on January 27th 2009 by the NFDA executive treasurer, Randall L Earl. The hearing was on the Bereaved Consumers Bill of Rights Act Initiated by Congressman Bobby Rush.
Earl is a controversial figure named in Lawsuits and investigations in the Illinois Funeral Directors Association IFDA Trust Ponzi Scheme. In Spite of these allegations he continues to serve on the Executive Board.
The Funeral Industry in the United States is in decline because of the rise of non traditional alternative funeral
In his testimony, Earl stated: “NFDA believes this bill outlines for the FTC a rule that we have long argued was necessary, given a dramatically changed marketplace, with new and non-traditional sellers offering many more choices for consumers to purchase funeral or burial goods or services, and the risks they take in dealing with them in a lightly or even unregulated environment.”-Via NFDA Facebook Notes
The fact that the traditional funeral guys are in an uproar over nontraditional funerals is good for the funeral consumer.
Non traditional funerals mean less than the average cost of a funeral for consumers,
The entire Funeral industry is trending to the lower cost funeral.
