    Not as gruesom as it sounds

    The subject of death, mortuary and funeral practice can be a fascinating subject. I worked for a funeral home at one time, and yes people DO ask ! Written in lay terms, this booklet explains what happens from the time you expire, to what happens on the mortician's table, to planting you in the ground. There is also a chapter on cremation (Nothing says 'lovin' like someone in the oven) and a blow by blow description of what to expect during a funeral.There are no illustrations or photographs, but they really aren't necessary. If you've never had to arrange a funeral before and what to know more, or if you are just curious, read this book. Just don't read it alone, BOO ! (Just kidding)
