In Part 2 of my 'I See Dead People' series, I thought it would be a good idea to tell you about what exactly happens when a body is embalmed. As we age, we will encounter the need to make arrangements for funerals, as well as visit them as a friend or relative. Should it fall on you to make the funeral arrangements, do you know what a loved one would really like for their final disposition? If you have no guidance by written wishes, you will need to make decisions that are difficult within a set amount of time to get all the arrangements in place. Embalm or Cremation? What does each really mean?
I hope that this explanation will allow you to make a more informed decision. This episode is very graphic and deals with procedures done to the body.
