Police Capt, wife and two daughters

-ny-police-captain-dies-trying-to-rescue-wife-daughters-from-fire- really sad. At the end of the article, 'the viewing' of the funeral proceedings is kind of disturbing to me. I don't like open casket, and in these deaths they are burned beyond recognition. I went to school with some students at the Xavier college of mortuary science, and they discussed their restorative art. Of course it is a business and the brand is always sold as they do so for the families. My grandad had a bill for his funeral with a 5 or 10 dollar charge for new underwear. I don't even like the casket and burial ritual. Cremation is less profitable, and my dad even reduced that by donating his body to the Wright State Medical College, they don't charge for cremation after they have finished the lessons the donation provided.
