What's it like to be a mortician?

"Where do we go when we die?" It's the one question we're all asked or have at least wondered about…including atheists.

A medium will offer one answer…a member of the clergy may see things differently.

But the only person who can answer the question, "Where do we got immediately after death," is the mortician.

What happens to our departed friends and loved ones once they're in the mortuary? How are they preserved? How is the work of a cosmetologist different after death? And, what choice of burial clothing would be unacceptable?

Those answers will only be answered once we ask, "What's It Like Being a Mortician?"
