Funeral director L.D. Pearson of St. Louis, MO purchased land in a posh residential neighborhood with the intention of opening a funeral parlor.
Spoiler alert: Pearson won and what was his establishment is now the Filson Historical Society!

Okay, got to love the IT crowd fandom hopping in, that’s awesome. Here’s the deal. I believe…
This is so much truth. College is not right for everyone. Cerri and I do not have college degrees, both of us are drop outs of the art persuasions. We’ve been very lucky to gain a lot of experiences and connections to build careers with. We both agree that we have been VERY lucky and it has been a lot of hard work, but there are many different paths you can take. Connections are the key along with any experience you can garner along the way.
Just read all the posts by people who left college/uni with massive debt and can’t get a job.
“Because sending a letter is the next best thing to showing up personally at someone’s door. Ink from your pen touches the stationary, your fingers touch the paper, your saliva seals the envelope, your scent graces the paper. Something tangible from your world travels through machines and hands, and deposits itself in another’s mailbox; their world. Your letter is then carried inside as an invited guest. The paper that was sitting on your desk, now sits on another’s. The recipient handles the paper that you handled. Letters create a connection that modern and impersonal forms of communication will never replace.”

I completely understand not being able to get to a visitation because of work - but let’s not forget visitations are about paying your last respects to the deceased, paying your respects to the family, and offering them comfort and support. What does the family get out of this?
