Here is what I would call the worst Funeral post of 2010. This comes from Funeral Director Todd Van Beck, a Funeral Guru of sorts. In His post he refers to the FUNERAL CONSUMER As the the Archie’s and Edith Bunkers of the World.
Todd Van Beck has been a well known Funeral Director for decades but the comments below show a high level of arrogance and great disrespect for the common folk.

This is going to be a short and sweet writing. The 2008 Gallup Poll results which polled the average American concerning the subject of professional ethics in careers is out, and once again funeral directors have made the top list. I think, if memory serves, funeral directors have made this prestigious list for now over a decade.
It is OK to be proud of Funeral Directors the good ones. But the ones that lack ethics, the ones that steal 100′s of millions dollars of the Folks Preneed Money or the guy I used to work with who bought a great car at a reduced price from a widow so she could pay for her husbands funeral…
More from the Article:.
“The overall results of the Gallup Poll, which really focus in getting the opinions of the common ordinary folk, you know the Archie and Edith Bunkers of the world, who are the substance of the funeral profession, have concluded that Nurses literally shine in the public’s ethics opinion and Bankers have fallen from ethical grace in a big way – surprise of surprises.
Anyway here are the top ethical careers for 2008, in rank order:
3. High School teachers
4. Medical doctors
5. Police officers
7. Funeral Directors
Todd Van Beck has given us a substandard blog post by calling Funeral Directors “Ethical”via www.yourfuneralguy.com
ANYONE WHO REFERS TO FUNERAL CONSUMERS AS ARCHIE AND EDITH BUNKERS-should not write Funeral Articles!
