the funeral director
, at least one with any conscience, respects the deceased, and runs the risk of tarnishing their name and losing their
license to embalm/funeral direct.
I've worked in that industry for several years, and NEVER have I come across someone who has taken anything off the body.
besides, most of the time, there is a family member present when the body is lowered in the casket, and then the casket is hermetically sealed, and
then it becomes damn near impossible to open it up again.
I'm appalled that anyone thinks this way about funeral directors.
and besides, if a body is embalmed- and if anyone wants to know the procedure, i'd be happy to give you the details- there is NO CHANCE it would
still be alive.
