  • Every once in a while I get the opportunity to step back into the role of funeral director, whether it be at the funeral home or by helping friends and family back in my hometown. In this particular instance I offered my assistance to my friend when her sister died after succumbing to a heart attack. While I didn't actually act as the funeral director, I was there in a consultant type of a role.

  • History was one of my worst subjects in school. I hated it with a passion and usually did just enough to pass. I have to admit; as I get older I have much more of an appreciation for it and now have a keen interest in any type of history. Last night I finally went to see the movie Lincoln and I was embarrassed by the fact that I didn't know a lot about the story.

  • In past articles, I've written how many people experience grief during the holiday season. Reason's for the grief can vary widely, but most of the time it is due to the death of a loved one, be it a recent death or one that occurred many years ago.

  • I have many fond memories of Christmas while growing up. As I look back, they aren't memories of presents I had gotten, (although I do remember a few "biggies" that I most likely didn't deserve) they are memories of just simply time spent together with family.

  • I remember one Saturday morning when I was about 18 years old washing cars in the funeral home garage and my boss came out and said that we had a home death and I needed to come along. He told me that this was going to be a little different than our typical home death. When I asked him why, he told me because it was a dog, a Boxer, named "Zues".

  • When I was a young boy, I always wished I had grown up in a funeral home. I know, weird right? That's what my parents thought too. I don't know where it came from but it somehow intrigued me.
