The Grateful Death

The Grateful Death offers resources, guidance, and end-of-life support to help people transition on their own terms. We do this so the dying and their loved ones are able to celebrate life and honor death – before, during, and after a passing.

Our Founder's Story

The Grateful Death was born from heartbreak. In August 2015, Crystal Flores’ mother received a terminal brain cancer diagnosis at the age of 63. Three weeks later, her father died suddenly from heart failure. After caring for her parents in their final chapters, she became committed to restoring dignity to the dying process. She has dedicated her life to serving families in this vulnerable time, creating a comfortable experience where life is celebrated before grieving begins.
