Does This Mean You'll See Me Naked?
A funeral director's behind-the-scenes story told with pathos and humor. You will laugh and you will cry, yet you will be informed and become a more prepared consumer. How people handle grief, why we send flowers, what really happens during a death call, the restoration process, what people include in their loved one's caskets, dealing with the clergy, how the undertaker's role has evolved, who pays on time and who doesn't, why we may see caskets on display at Wal-Mart, and much much more.
Robert D. Webster has been a licensed embalmer and funeral director in the state of Ohio since 1977. As a teenager he was initiated into the funeral home business by mowing the grass, washing the cars, and performing other menial, yet important at the time, duties that served as a springboard for his eventual chosen profession. He completed grade school, junior high, and high school in Hamilton, Ohio, and graduated from Miami University and the Cincinnati College of Mortuary Science. Bob worked for other funeral homes in the area for 24 years. He opened The Webster Funeral Home in Fairfield, Ohio in 2001.
