      experience, optimizations to the flowers ecommerce platform,
      transitioning to secure and responsive sites, and email notifications
      for new newspaper obituaries.
    • Over half of our newspaper partners are on NGO, our premier obituary
      platform
      ; and we launched more than 500 funeral homes on our
      Funeral Home Local Spotlight program.
