Yesterday I worked from 4-8:30 pm and this time it was simply a visitation (also known as a wake). Myself and my co-worker assisted the family as much as possible and tried our best to stay out of their way in order to allow them time to grieve. In general the evening was quiet and uneventful however I must admit that being in the mortuary, at night, in the dark, by ourselves, was very unsettling. I am hoping that with time and experience I will overcome my imagination and become more comfortable. In addition, before locking the gates at night, we have to drive around the cemetery and confirm their aren't any guests visiting the grounds. The second creepiest thing in the world...driving around the cemetery at night!
