About this BLOG

Welcome to The Silva Lining, where I hope to dispel myths, expand on topics and answer questions about the funeral industry. Let's help break the taboo about this unspoken industry and prove that knowledge about this topic can lessen anxiety at a very stressful time.

This blog will serve as a forum for discussion, expanding on topics featured weekly on WSAR 1480AM, Thursdays at 2pm and online at www.wsar.com

There is no judgement, pressure or obligations here - simply ask any questions you may have either publicly on this blog or privately through this email.


About AMY L. Silva Rigtrup 

Amy is a fifth generation funeral director with Silva-Faria Funeral Homes, family owned and operated since 1890. Licensed since 2005, Amy is passionate about her role as a guide for families in their time of need. Growing up in the funeral home has given her a strong sense of respect for this industry. A creative social butterfly with a background in theatre, she revels in the numerous conversations she has had with people that upon learning her profession, have a million questions. Amy hopes to be a voice for an industry that has never really had one in an informal setting.
