“There is no grief like the grief that does not speak”
My name is Kerri L'Etoile and this business is a dream I have had for many years. I am originally from Cape Cod Massachusetts. My career there, was 25+ years of healthcare in several areas of Cape Cod Hospital. I moved to Colorado in 2015. Moving so far from home and family was a massive change for me. I needed to find my calling, something to make a difference. After some thought, I decided to return to my family roots and study Mortuary Science. After 4 years as a Funeral Director, I knew I needed to do more for families. I knew families needed me to help them along this path that can be scary and uncertain.
