Being a mortician myself, our business is just like any other one – there are the bad eggs and then the good ones. I hate to say it, but a lot of how a mortician conducts himself over the span of his/her career originates from who he/she apprenticed under. Monkey-see, monkey-do. We don’t have the easiest job in the world, and I like to believe that our job is one of the most important ones in our society. It comes down to the mentality of “wow, I’m the last person to care for the deceased before they are gone.” I find the job very rewarding indeed.
