Gobble! Gobble! It’s that time of year again… a time to get together with family and friends to reflect on the blessings we have and eat way too much turkey and dressing.

We all have many reasons to be thankful this Thanksgiving holiday. Here at OGR, we are thankful for all of our Golden Rule funeral home members who help make this association strong. We are grateful for the trust you put in us to provide you with the best resources an association can offer, and we thank you for your many years of loyalty and friendship.

We asked some of our funeral home members to share what they are most thankful for. You can see their responses below.
