This website is a cooperative effort of William A. White and Beal V. Bourne, II, CFSP. We saw the need for a website to address the needs of the African American Deathcare Professionals. We feel that this website can be a resource to associate, communicate, educate and rejuvenate the members of the African American Deathcare Professionals.

As with any endeavour there will be a period of adjustment and learning, but you must crawl before you walk. We hope to be in the future a source for information and source for referral for answers in the African American Deathcare Professionals.

Mr. Bourne has been active in the the Deathcare

Industry as a mortician for over 35 years, serving

both in the National Funeral Directors and Morticians Association and the Epsilon Nu Delta Fraternity and is known as "The Official Photographer" for many years. Mr. White has developed and hosted many websites on the Internet and also a photographer and has taken photographs at many events with Mr. Bourne. We feel that the knowledge of the Deathcare Industry, mastery of the website on the Internet, contacts and acquaintances between Mr. Bourne and Mr. White and the lack of fear of failure will keep this project on track. But with all projects the Support of the Community we seek to serve is the most important. This project can only succeed if we receive the Support of the African American Deathcare Professionals. We need you support by providing us with news, articles, events, pictures, weddings, anniversaries, celebrations, deaths and the information you want to be shared with others in the community of Professionals.

We would like to go back to how the old Afro-American Weekly Newspapers used to be. We want to be able to look at ourselves and see what others are doing and we want to keep ourselves aware of new trends in technology. We want this website to the best of best Worlds. We want this to be a website of the people of the African American Deathcare Professional by the people of the African American Deathcare Professionals.

We are depending on you to be a part of our dream.

Mail or e-mail your news, articles, events and pictures to the addresses below.

Thank you for your cooperation in advance and we will be in touch with you on the Internet.

Some visitors are eager to watch humorous videos, but I like to watch terrible video clips on YouTube.
