It makes me wish I would die in Farfield Ohio
Does this mean you'll see me naked? by Robert Webster.
Mr Webster runs a funeral parlor in Ohio and has written this delightful little book reflecting on his 30 plus years in the "death" business. It took me a little over an hour to read and was filled with wonderful stories involving the handling of the dead. From the heartbreaking (picking up a recently deceased - cancer - mother over three as her little boys watched) to the hilarious (some of the tattoo's and body sizes), he deals with everything with the upmost respect. He also goes through what exactly happens to you when you die, what the possible costs are, and what to expect when it happens to your family. You can preview just about the whole book on Google books.
A great book.
