Hundreds mourn beloved homeless man at Star of the Sea parish - Catholic San Francisco

Monday, November 21, 2016

Funston and Clement streets in San Francisco’s Richmond District – streamed into Star of the Sea Church on Geary Boulevard Nov. 7 to express their respect and affection.Hooker had endeared himself to the parish and surrounding community with his gentle spirit. He spent a part of each day praying in the back pews, said Star of the Sea pastor Father Joseph Illo, who eulogized him as “a kind of patron saint of the homeless.”“The meaning of being homeless beyond shelter is when you lack a home, lack a family who understands you. You are homeless when you don’t feel you belong anywhere,” said Father Illo. “Many of us who live in more comfort are more homeless than Thomas was. He had a home with us.”Thomas had “overcome his homelessness,” said Father Illo, who claimed Hooker’s body and planned the funeral Mass and reception that followed. McAvoy O’Hara Co., the Evergreen Mortuary, donated a casket and prepared the body for burial. A special collection was taken during the Mass so that Hooker might be laid to rest with dignity and a headstone at Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma.According to a Richmond District blog, Hooker was originally from Trinidad and had spent time in Chicago before coming to San Francisco.“This was a man who never asked for anything,” said Lea Grey Dimond, the owner of Thidwick Books on Clement Street.Every day, Hooker worked his way along Clement Street with his shopping cart, and would stand at the corner of Ninth Avenue near Walgreens, usually talking to himself.Hooker was one of three individuals profiled in a documentary about mental illness called “Voices.”In the trailer for the documentary Hooker says with a huge grin...

Last gasp for S.F.'s long tradition of funeral homes - San Francisco Chronicle

Monday, November 14, 2016

Crain’s New York Business.“Many funeral-home directors are realizing they have oversized real estate relative to the business,” said Danny O’Hara of the McAvoy O’Hara Evergreen Mortuary on Geary Boulevard. Photo: Michael Macor, The Chronicle Matt Taylor displays a 1925 photograph of his family’s Valente Marini Perata & Co. funeral home.One reason is that San Franciscans are living longer. Even though the city has more people than it had in 1970 — 865,000 vs. 715,000 — the number of deaths in the city has been dropping for nearly five decades, according to the Department of Public Health. In 1970, 9,568 people died in San Francisco. Last year the number was 6,008.Meanwhile, thanks to the popularity of cremation, families laying to rest their deceased loved ones are spending less. Nationally, cremations have increased tenfold since the mid-1970s and now make up 50 percent of all disposals. In San Francisco, cremations are closer to 70 percent.Nationally a burial service averages about $8,000, while cremations average about $4,000. At Valente Marini Perata, a traditional funeral with two-day visitation is $4,550, not including casket, which starts at $1,575 and goes as high as $9,288. The full cremation package (which includes two days of refrigeration, sheltering of remains and a hearse to the crematory) is $2,691.In addition, families are spending less time and money on the sort of multiday wakes and funerals that used to be common, O’Hara said. As families have become more geographically spread out, there is less demand for the three or four days of visitation that used to be common. More typical today is one day of visitation, or even “same day” visitation, where the wake takes place the day of the funeral.“People are more modest in what they are selecting, choosing family-oriented gatherings rather than the formal trappings of the traditional funeral,” O’Hara said. “People are not living close together in the same neighborhood. It might take a couple of weeks for everyone to gather.”In contrast, Taylor’s business in the Outer Mission hasn’t changed much. Burials still make up about 75 percent of his business. It’s Catholic families — Italian, Latino, Filipino — from neighborhood parishes like Church of the Epiphany, St. John the Evangelist and Our Lady of Perpetual Help.“This isn’t a Yelp kind of thing,” said Taylor. “I’ve buried three generations of the same family. We spend a lot of time really going out of our way to take care of people the way they should be taken care of.”Taylor will be able to stay on Mission Street while the project goes through approvals — another year or so. He has been looking for locations in the neighborhood, as well as the possibility of relocating to the grounds of one of the cemeteries in Colma.“That’s the trend — mortuaries on cemetery property. Being a one-stop shop seems to appeal to the new generation of client,” he said. “That’s not our business, but it is the trend.”O’Hara said that he is lucky that his kids want to keep the business going, and his funeral home has started to specialize in Buddhist ceremonies popular in the heavily Chinese Richmond District.“It’s like the family farm — you have a business you are operating, and then you have the underlying land value that you tend to ignore as long as things are going well and the tax burden is not too bad,” said O’Hara. “I hate to be the predictor of bad news, but the business is going through consolidation, and cremations are going to dominate more and more.”J.K.
