Nantucket example

I recommend this post on the FCA blog:

Is Nantucket a bellwether for the funeral industry?

"Nantucket citizens deserve praise for ingenuity and compassion. Launching a nonprofit funeral service to take care of their own is in the best traditions of rural self-sufficiency and neighborly care. Undertakers' trade groups should be ashamed of standing in the way."
