I'm a Funeral Services graduate embarking on a new career. I graduated high school in 1981, served honorably in the United States Navy from 1982-1986, been married since 1986, and have one son. I've relocated to a new state and have begun working in my chosen profession of Funeral Services, and I've never been happier.

I Got A Kiss!

Today we had a visitation and memorial service combined. The deceased was being cremated, but the family had a viewing. After it was over, one of the mourners came up to me, kissed me on the cheek and told me to take good care of her, meaning the deceased.
That is one of the reasons I got into this business; to help people at a difficult time in their life. I cannot tell you how touched I was that this happened. It is so much more satisfying to go home at the end of the day, knowing how much you've helped, as opposed to my old job where the best you could hope for was to not have anyone yell at you because their watch was still out for repair.

On a separate note, I have a new cell phone with camera, so I'm trying to liven up my blog with the occasional picture. I hope you enjoy the change.

COOL! I think it's wonderful that you can see the good you are doing for people. In any profession, a kind word and a smile goes along way, but a kiss? Wow, that's beyond cool!

Love the pics! The kiss, those intimate connections with people we don't even know are so special. Good job, Granimore...

You know, the people at the funeral home made my grandma look so beautiful and peaceful at the funeral. It made all of us feel so much better, that she looked so beautiful.
