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'm Afraid There's Not A Whole Lot To Say

I hate to make useless entries about nothing, but at the same time I hate going days and days without posting. Work has been fairly uneventful this past week. We finished the last of our rush of services last Monday night. Today we had a private viewing for a family. The calls have slowed down some, but we do have some services on the horizon. We will be receiving a body from another state on Monday, with services that Wednesday. We've got a service this Friday morning in a nearby church, and tomorrow night is a memorial service for the private viewing family. I'm on call this week, and I know of at least one pending call we will be receiving. One of the members of my church is in the Intensive Care Unit at a nearby hospital. It doesn't look promising, despite our prayers.

I just read this post re. a member of your church being in Intensive Care. I'm sure it's especially difficult when you have to organise funerals for people you know personally

It's not so bad during the actual funeral; the awkward part is when you keep seeing the family at church week after week. I wonder what they think every time they see me? Does it bring back memories? Does it hinder the healing process?
