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.

Sorry For The Lack of Content

I just noticed it's been well over a month since my last post. Sorry about that. The weekend of March 14-16 was nuts. From close of business Friday until Monday morning we received 7 calls. Usually we don't get seven calls in one week, let alone over a weekend. They were all cremations, as well, with a cot view, a couple of Masses and National Cemetery thrown in for good measure. The hardest part about a busy weekend like that is trying to make sure that everything is done for every call.
Put all the obits in, post services on our website and answering service, confirm the doctors, make sure the dc gets sent out, make sure we get them back in a timely manner, fax cremation paperwork to the crematory when ready. It is so easy to let things slip through the cracks in these situations. Thankfully this weekend was slightly calmer, with only 3 calls coming in.
