Dear Fellow Business People,

             Butler Coach would like to thank all of the funeral directors that attended the 2009 IFDA convention.  We hope that everyone got a chance to see what was new with Eagle Coach.   We look forward to seeing you at Lucas Oil Stadium for next years IFDA convention.


 The 2010’s will be rolling into the factories soon, so order yours now to be one of the first to have the new 2010 sitting in your garage.  The 2010 Eagle lineup will consist of the Cadillac Echelon, Cadillac Premier, Cadillac Ultimate, Cadillac Kingsley, and the Cadillac Coupe de Fleur.  Contrary to what you may have heard the Lincoln is going to continue to produce the Town Car through the 2011 model year and Eagle will make the Lincoln Ultimate and Kingsley.  Eagle will continue with their tradition of the finest first call vehicles built off of the Chrysler Town & Country chassis available in the touring edition or the LX model.  The Krystal Enterprises Line-up will consist of their 2010 Cadillac Waterford, 2010 Lincoln Sterling and Chrysler 300 Waterford funeral coaches.


 If you would prefer a pre-owned car we have late model funeral coaches waiting to be delivered to your firm, on the list below.  Just give us a call at 1-800-876-0857 and we will bring the car of your choice to your funeral home to take a look at.  Now is a great time to take advantage of the tax benefits that the IRS has allowed on funeral cars, you can write off up to $250,000.00 off of your funeral home’s 2009 taxes.


            The Independent Funeral Directors of Indiana will be holding their annual convention on August 19, 2009 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Indianapolis, Indiana.  The IFDA district meetings are just around the corner in September and we shall be attending those again this year.  The NFDA convention is in Boston this year October 25-28.  If you are interested in a free day on the NFDA convention floor please contact us by July 30, 2009 and we can make that happen for you. We look forward to seeing you at any or all of these events.

A chuckle or two for YOU...
I was in the express lane at the store quietly fuming. Completely ignoring the sign, the woman ahead of me had slipped into the check-out line pushing a cart piled high with groceries.
Imagine my delight when the cashier beckoned the woman to come forward looked into the cart and asked sweetly, 'So which six items would you like to buy?'
Wouldn't it be great if that happened more often?
Because they had no reservations at a busy restaurant, my elderly neighbor and his wife were told there would be a 45-minute wait for a table.   'Young man, we're both 90 years old, ' the husband said . 'We may not have 45 minutes.' They were seated immediately.

All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle.  They reached the altar and the waiting groom; the bride kissed her father and placed something in his hand.  The guests in the front pews responded with ripples of laughter.  Even the priest smiled broadly.  As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card.
Three friends from the local congregation were asked, 'When you're in your casket, and friends and congregation members are mourning over you, what would you like them to say?'  
Artie said: ' I would like them to say I was a wonderful husband, a fine spiritual leader, and a great family man.'

Eugene commented: 'I would like them to say I was a
wonderful teacher and servant of God who made a huge difference in people's lives.'
Al said: 'I'd like them to say, 'Look, he's moving!'


 John was on his deathbed and gasped pitifully.  'Give me one last request, dear,' he said.  
'Of course, John,' his wife said softly.  
'Six months after I die,' he said, 'I want you to marry Bob.'
'But I thought you hated Bob,' she said.  
With his last breath John said, 'I do!'


A man goes to see the Rabbi. 'Rabbi, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it.'  The Rabbi asked, 'What's wrong?'  
The man replied, 'My wife is poisoning me.'  
The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, 'How can that be?'
The man then pleads, 'I'm telling you, I'm certain she's poisoning me, what should I do?'  
The Rabbi then offers, 'Tell you what. Let me talk to her, I'll see what I can find out and I'll let you know.'  
A week later the Rabbi calls the man and says, 'Well, I spoke to your wife. I spoke to her on the phone for three hours. You want my advice?'
The man said yes and the Rabbi replied, 'Take the poison'


Did you hear about the 83 year old woman who talked herself out of a speeding ticket by telling the young officer that she had to get there before she forgot where she was going?

The madam opened the brothel door in Winnipeg and saw a rather dignified, well-dressed, good-looking man in his late forties or early fifties.
'May I help you sir?' she asked.
'I want to see Valerie,' the man replied.
'Sir, Valerie is one of our most expensive ladies..... Perhaps you would prefer someone else,' said the madam.
'No, I must see Valerie,' he replied.
Just then Valerie appeared and announced to the man she charged $5000 a visit.  
Without hesitation, the man pulled out five thousand dollars and gave it to Valerie, and they went upstairs.
After an hour, the man calmly left.
The next night, the man appeared again, once more demanding to see Valerie.
Valerie explained that no one had ever come back two nights in a row, as she was too expensive, but there were no discounts, the price was still $5000.
Again, the man pulled out the money, gave it to Valerie, and they went upstairs.
After an hour he left.
The following night the man was there yet again.
Everyone was astounded that he had come for a third consecutive night, but he paid Valerie and they went upstairs.
After their session, Valerie said to the man, 'No one has ever been with me three nights in a row. Where are you from?'.
The man replied, 'Ontario.'
'Really,' she said. 'I have family in Ontario.'
'I know,' the man said. 'Your sister died and I am her attorney. She asked me to give you your $15,000 inheritance.'
The moral of the story is that three things in life are certain:
                    1.  Death
                    2. Taxes
                    3. Being screwed by a lawyer

Grandpa’s Drink

There was a family gathering, with all generations around the table.

Mischievous teenagers put a Viagra tablet into Grandpa's drink, and after a while, Grandpa excused himself because he had to go to the bathroom.

When he returned, however, his trousers are wet all over.
'What happened, Grandpa?' he is asked by his concerned children.

'Well,' he answered, 'I don't really know.   I had to go to the
bathroom.   So I took it out and started to pee, but then I saw
that it wasn't mine, so I put it back!'


Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter.
The man at the counter asked the older boy, 'Son, how old are you?'
'Eight', the boy replied.
The man continued, 'Do you know what these are used for?'
The boy replied, 'Not exactly, but they aren't for me. They're for him. He's my brother. He's four. We saw on TV that if you use these, you would be able to swim, play tennis and ride a bike.  Right now, he can't do none of that".
