It seems like everyone we’ve met wants to know why someone would chose the Funeral Industry as their line of work. You usually hear…”Who in their right mind would want to do this creepy stuff for a living.” Trust me, it’s not a “Calling” its not something you were born to do. Yes, for some its a family business – that’s what’s expected of them. For others there’s a personal experience that brings them in the doors. I’ve met a few that actually ‘LOOK like they ought to be in the business, but instead they’re selling me shoes.
So, it always brings a smile to my face when someone – especially women, ask my husband “Why did you choose the Funeral Business as your profession?” Morty puts on his game face and answers “Well, when my grandfather died, blah, blah, blah.” …That’s when the girls look at him with gleamy eyes and say “Ahh, how sweet.” Little do they know I asked him the same question 20 years ago, I was his Bartender. His answer “Well, I wanted to be a Doctor – but I sucked at that ‘Operation Game. So, I figured what the hell.”
