Guardian is thankful for all essential workers who continue to serve their communities in the face of something so uncertain. We want to recognize essential workers for their commitment to their neighbors and their drive to serve. An often overlooked group on the frontlines is funeral home employees.
They continue to work as normally as possible. Due to crowd restrictions, however, they have not been able to help families grieve as they normally would. Families cannot gather to mourn and celebrate their loved ones how they would like. Funeral homes have been doing everything they can to help these families. Our Wetumpka team acknowledged local Gassett Funeral Home for their hard work and support of grieving families. Plans have had to change, but they have still been there when their neighbors need them most, and their hard work has not gone unnoticed.
Our team provided them lunch from local Copper House Deli in Wetumpka, and they were so appreciative people were thinking of them. Many of us don't realize how this pandemic has affected different industries, especially small, local businesses, and how they've adjusted to new rules and restrictions. We are thankful for their service and their hearts for their communities.
