    Over Our Dead Bodies MOBI ñ Over Our MOBI :æ over book, dead pdf, bodies kindle, Over Our download, Over Our Dead Bodies PDFFilled with hilarious sweet sad and bittersweet stories this book is a collection of experiences from funeral directors in the US It includes everything from finding a terrorist in a casket spray compiling a funeral directors calendar handling a riot during a funeral service dealing with personal loss as a funeral director a runaway hearse out of ordinary funeral requests and even a touch of the supernatural I enjoyed reading the two authors' distinctive alternating voices and found myself laughing and shedding a few tears here and there As someone who was born and lives outside the US I'm unfamiliar with most of these practices and found the book entertaining and educational

    Over Our Dead Bodies MOBI ñ Over Our MOBI :æ over book, dead pdf, bodies kindle, Over Our download, Over Our Dead Bodies PDFI can't explain why I like books like this The only possible reason I can think of is that my first apartment was next door to a funeral home my landlord was mortician and my first job was as a florist florists do a lot of funeral flowers so I'm not at all creeped out by any of thisThat said I lost interest in this before I was halfway through The problem was that the story wasn't cohesive The two authors switch back and forth with no warning which had me scrambling to figure out who was talking A pity Because I really wanted to like this
