Too much information, of an eerily mesmerizing sort

If you have ever wanted to know about the process of embalming bodies in North American funeral homes, Sundry has a brand-new post just for you. She tagged along with her brother-in-law, who works in a mortuary, and watched him prepare an elderly woman's body for a funeral.

I know some people feel that it's important to see the body of their loved one in order to have the necessary sense of closure. But after reading this, all I can think is, "No thank you, I'll just take a closed pine box."

Uh... happy day before New Year's Eve? Or something.
