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.

Solo Service

This morning we had a memorial service at 11am, which I worked by myself. It was a small gathering, and everything went well. The family was very pleased, saying it was a lovely service. I put together a slideshow of pictures for them; they liked that.

That is our newest service, by the way, and one which I have been put in charge of, given my computer-savvy background. We installed the scanning software that came with our new all-in-one fax/copy/printer/scanner machine, and this new software is so much better than what we were using. Hopefully this will make putting these slideshows together much easier than my 65 picture ordeal I posted about a few days ago.

As I mentioned, I worked this service solo, which if memory serves makes this my first official solo service ever. I've had some where I've finished what others have started, but today it was all me, all the time. Thankfully, it was a memorial service, which means the body was not present. It was pretty much a family-only affair, so there were only about a dozen in attendance.
