Why did you join THE GUILD?
My story is rather simple. I had been a guest at the annual dinner for several years. I decided to join THE GUILD and soon became a sustaining life member. Ty Totte invited me to join the dinner committee because he said, "If you can plan a funeral, you can help us plan the dinner!" After being on the dinner committee for several years, I was nominated by Ben Capp to become a Board Member.

What have you gained by being a part of THE GUILD?
I have gained an enormous amount of knowledge about THE GUILD and St. John Hospital. I have met a lot of people I didn't know before; many I can now call friends. I try to give back to any group I belong to, otherwise, why belong.
