ASD was recently featured in the July issue of American Funeral Director Magazine.

ASD loves reading the insightful stories and astute observations shared by our client Caleb Wilde on his blog, Confessions of a Funeral Director at CalebWilde.com. Caleb's refreshingly honest perspective has also rightfully caught the attention of 20/20, Connecting Directors and the Philadelphia Inquirer. Confession of a Funeral Director covers everything from societal issues such as the death of Trayvon Martin, to Caleb's firsthand experiences working as a funeral director, to personal stories about Caleb's family and the recent adoption of his son Jeremiah.
