Quote:  "
Trade embalmers are an interesting breed. While others sleep, we work. If you do not strive for excellence, forget trade embalming. We must be better than the average embalmer, faster, sharper, cleaner, and able to do perfect work under less than perfect circumstances. Excellence is expected from us from all quarters if we expect further business."
