On this episode of the Blue View Podcast, National President Patrick Yoes is joined by National FOP Chaplain, Rick Snyder, as well as Shannon Nordyke and Crystal Mai Purdy-Newland for an in-depth, conversation about why it is so important to plan.

The Dignity Memorial Public Servants Program offers no-cost tributes for career and volunteer law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency services personnel who fall in the line of duty. In addition to providing funeral, cremation and burial services, the Public Servants Program also provides extended counseling services to the grieving family.

Rick Snyder serves as the Chaplain for the National FOP. He is also the President of the Indianapolis FOP, serving over 3,000 active and retired members from 10 different law enforcement agencies in Central Indiana. Rick is also the cohost of the Remnant Reveal podcast, created by Dr. Chris Holland and Rick to help officers and their families find Biblically based solutions to the challenges they face daily.

Crystal Mai Purdy-Newland has worked in the funeral service industry for close to 20 years, and is currently the location manager of Lincoln Memorial Park & Funeral Home. Although her career is in funeral service, Crystal’s passions involve multiple and varying levels of service and outreach. Crystal has a personal passion to educate the veteran community on funeral benefits; what they are, and mainly, what they are not. She also serves on the Board of Directors of the Oregon Fallen Badge Foundation, a non-profit organization comprised of professionals who are trained to respond to a law enforcement line of duty death, carry out proper and dignified funeral services, while offering care and support for affected communities, families, and agencies.

Shannon Nordyke is a Licensed Funeral Director in Nevada and has worked in the funeral industry for 17 years, she grew up in a small town in Iowa before she relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada. She has worked in all positions in Funeral Service but has found her passion is being able to serve families when they have had a loss and help families to prepare for the future. She is currently the Mortuary Manager at Palm Eastern Mortuary in Las Vegas, Nevada. Shannon is the liaison for our local First Responders and Active Duty Personnel at our local Military Bases. Shannon has worked relentlessly to make Palm Mortuary be the best choice for First Responders in the area and has the honor to serve each family when their loved passes away in the Line of Duty.
