Excellent piece! You had me reflecting on my experiences with mortuary’s and death. Like you, it was my duty to deal with death. I couldn’t say “nah, this bit isn’t for me”
The anticipation mixed with imagination is the worst. Searching a house for a possible deceased, no idea what we would find is still, to this day my biggest dread!
Despite 14 years with many brushes with death, dealing with bodies, watching postmortems etc, I never got used it it either 😕
