Interview Excerpt:

Look at Cypress Lawn. We have the Cemetery Association. We have our funeral homes. We also have the Cypress Lawn Cremation Association; that's a licensed funeral establishment that we have. And then our new group of funeral homes that we purchased, there was also an off-brand cremation provider; it's called All County Cremation Services. Cypress Lawn is a little bit of everything.

Nancy: It certainly sounds like it.

Kenneth: Of course, here at Cypress Lawn, we have the internal obligation of maintaining 200 acres of property, which is very, very expensive. And so we've had to expand our services to expand our revenue, to ensure that we can continue to fulfill on the promises that we've made to our families.
