Elizabeth Meyer stumbled upon a career in the midst of planning her own father's funeral, which she turned into an upbeat party with Rolling Stones music, thousands of dollars' worth of her mother's favorite flowers, and a personalized eulogy. Starting out as a receptionist, Meyer quickly found she had a knack for helping people cope with their grief as well as creating fitting send-offs for some of the city's most high-powered residents. Meyer has seen it all: two women who found out their deceased husband (yes, singular) was living a double life, a famous corpse with a missing brain, and funerals that cost more than most weddings. By turns illuminating, emotional, and darkly humorous, Good Mourning is a lesson in how the human heart grieves and grows - whether you're wearing this season's couture or drugstore flip-flops.

"It's a story well suited to the big screen." (Publishers Weekly starred review)
Turned Up 4 God
This was unusual but I still enjoyed every moment of listening to this book. It was good to listen to the things that go on at a funeral home.
