The AFRO Honors Morticians as Unsung Heroes
The AFRO honored the “Unsung Heroes” of the COVID-19 pandemic at Valley Mansion by Martin’s on Aug. 6.
At a special event earlier this month, the media company commended morticians for their critical and often under-recognized role in helping families navigate the loss of a loved one during a global pandemic.
“We are deeply humbled and grateful to be recognized by The AFRO as an "Unsung Hero." The COVID-19 pandemic underscored the critical importance of compassion, dedication, and resilience of morticians”, said Brittney Greene, Vice President of Operations, who accepted the award on Vaughn Greene Funeral Services' behalf.
