Sobre este título:

Sinopsis: A father s death can have a tremendous impact on a child, no matter how old the child. But to a ten-year-old boy Brian McGarry s age, when his father died the event can affect the rest of your life. In Brian s case, it helped chart his life s course. Witnessing first-hand the caring and dedication that is innate to those in the funeral business left an indelible impression on Brian and, seven short years later, he found himself working for Charlie Hulse, of Hulse and Playfair, one of the most respected men in the City of Ottawa.

From his humble start washing cars and delivering flowers, Brian McGarry rose to become CEO of one of most prestigious funeral/crematorium firms in Canada. Over the years, Hulse, Playfair and McGarry has served with dignity everyone from paupers to prime ministers nearly 78,000 families in the firm s 85-year history, 60,000 since Brian joined the firm in 1962.

In A Life in Death, Brian relates the history of Hulse, Playfair and McGarry through both photos and stories, assembled in two volumes. The Album (hard cover, ISBN 9781897508534, $60) gathers together a rich collection of images from the firm s extensive archives; The Story (soft cover, ISBN 9781897508459, $30; hard cover, ISBN 9781926962498, $40) narrates how the funeral business has changed and grown since Charlie Hulse and Keith Playfair first started working together in 1931. From providing the first dedicated ambulance and non-denominational chapel in the city of Ottawa, to state funerals, crematoria, and successfully challenging the corporatisation of the funeral business, Hulse, Playfair and McGarry has stayed true to its community and its founding principles. As Charlie Hulse advised Brian on his first day of work, Don t forget where you came from, and I ll show you where you can go.
