The above graphic is a screenshot taken from the Hathaway Funeral Home chain. Evidently, the Hathaway Group shook hands with the Crapo Clan and a hyphen sealed the merger.
Aside from the obvious fertilizer for jokes, the name in this day and age is mystifying. Didn't ANYONE speak up?!
Maybe it's a marketing strategy - going for the segment of "distress" burials. You know, people you don't like?
"Yeah. We put that witch Aunt Matilda in Crapo...HA HA HA HA HA and GOOD RIDDANCE!"
I should contact the Hathaway's and get the scoop on why they kept such a goofy name, but I suspect they'd try to bury me with some line of B.S. HA HA HA HA HA.
Some comedian out there just got 30 minutes of material. "Honey, that new Crapo routine positively KILLED'EM last night! They died laughing!"
"Great dear! The Hathaway people called too - your commission check's at the front desk!"
