A 'must-read' for anyone who has ever wondered about the process of laying to rest those we love. -- Robert Kirby, Salt Lake Tribune columnist
Finally, a book that glibly exposes the often funny, always poignant truth behind the life of an undertaker. -- Jim Tipton, president of Find A Grave
Chad Daybell lives in a small town in the Rocky Mountains. He wrote this book while serving as his city's cemetery sexton. However, once the book was completed, Chad realized what a weird job he had and has since moved on to another job. He certainly has less job security now, but the locks to his office haven't been mysteriously opened, either.
He does have aspirations to eventually become one of the cemetery's "riding lawnmower guys" when he retires, though.
Chad has also written a fictional time-travel series known as "The Emma Trilogy," which just happens to revolve around a cemetery. Chad's publisher hopes he'll branch out to a less-morbid topic one of these days.
