Thanks for responding to my survey.

In the beginning we would only compete on the storage aspect.
The freezing would have to be done elsewhere.
Each client would have to hire the best possible suspension team he or she
could afford,
and then be frozen elsewhere, and stored here.

Maybe somje of the other cryonics facilities would be willing to hire out
their suspension teams even in cases they do not want to store themselves?

And in most post mortem cases there would of course just be a straight
freeze anyway.

Locally we would first be dependent upon an undertaker,
though I hope to recruit a forensic doctor I know.

We might have to challenge some young high school students to get enough
interested in life-extension and cryonics, to select to study cryo biology,
and then get back to assist us.
