Just stumbled on it
10 July 2019 | by lizrowdySee all my reviews

But I really like this show. It's not morbid or disrespectful. I never thought I would like a show like this but I do. It's a view of how respectful a planned or unplanned goodbye can be. Sometimes it's hard to see families paying there respect on the loss of a young person. But it's part of the circle of life. Why not show how things can be done?
