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.

Happy Again

In one of my previous posts I alluded to the fact that I had lost my joy, and if I had the financial security I would leave funeral directing altogether. Since moving to my new firm I have rediscovered my joy, much like Billy Crystal finding his smile in "City Slickers." At my new firm I no longer feel like a janitor, although I frequently joke with the staff about them letting janitors meet with families and make funeral arrangements. In addition to not being relegated to janitorial duties, I have been tasked with assisting with some bookkeeping, which requires me to learn Quickbooks. It's a challenge, as I am not a bookkeeper by any means, and I have never used Quickbooks in my life. Still, I am slowly figuring it out with help from the video tutorials and the secretary at our crematory.

Just stumbled across your blog and it's very interesting. I've been a hospice volunteer, student nurse and am now a volunteer EMT. We've had our share of 'transports' of the deceased. Always wondered what life was like on the other side. Your blog is fascinating...almost like a diary. Keep it up!
