"Right now we're pioneering, we're out there looking far out, thinking these things could change the life celebrations at a funeral home," David Kolssak told The Daily Herald. "The spirit of this is not to do nothing but help people at a time of need."

Kolssak says they've received an "overwhelming" and positive response from people across the county.
