It is true, a picture is worth a 1000 words. Our loved ones are not just another statistics. They are so much more than that. Our pictures truly tell everyone that they were not just a work place death but someone left a family behind and were truly loved. Would you like to honor and share your loved one by adding a picture to our Faces Campaign that is seen by many across the United States on our website, social media, posters, mailouts, and at conferences in which we attend? You can do so by visiting this page.
