By trade, I am a licensed funeral director and embalmer. Not only is that the greatest line to start a blog, it’s usually the greatest line to start a first date too! (No it isn’t. I lied. Only use that line if you want to end the date early.)
Remember that 1991 film My Girl with the little girl who lived above a funeral home? I’m basically the 2017, 24-year-old version of her, caskets downstairs & all. I’ve helped hundreds of families in my last five years of funeral service including Gedney, leader of Minnesota pickle empire Gedney Pickles! This was kind of a big dill, because pickles are probably my favorite food.
Life can get a bit hectic with work, so I travel to get away from it all. Funeral service has taught me that life is too short to let fear win. I don’t want regrets, only memories. So far, I’ve had the privilege of traveling to Asia, Central America, Europe, and all over the United States. Sometimes I take friends, other times I make friends!
My hope is that my stories inspire you, make you laugh, or teach you something new! At the heart of it, Morty & Me is simply about life, love, work, and play.
