Planning a Meaningful, but Cost Effective Funeral
Life Transitions was born out of Rene Sanchez’s frustration in seeing families misinformed and/or misguided by too many funeral providers during their time of grieving.  He can help you plan a cost effective but meaningful funeral for yourself or a loved one.  He is a licensed funeral director and has been in the business for 15 years. 

At The Good Life Design Collaborative, our mission is to make life easier and more fun for people of all ages and abilities by educating, connecting, and inspiring both consumers and service providers. 

We Serve:
  Anyone planning smart ways to live a long and vital life
  People encountering health difficulties and the people who love them and care for them
  Providers of products and services designed to make life better for people encountering health problems
  or frailty
