“As a celebrant I deal with creating meaningful funeral ceremonies for families, but after reading The Party of Your Life I realized how limited my ideas have been. Erika Dillman really opened up my eyes to a much more expanded way of looking at funerals. She has written a witty and humorous book on a topic that some people find fearful and morbid, and she conveys vital information in an easy-to-digest manner that includes humorous real-world examples.”

Firemen do it, policemen do it, and now, so do morticians and funeral directors. I'm talking about posing for some seriously shirtless photos to raise money for charity. This is old news, but still fun to hear about.
Back in 2007 a group of morticians and funeral directors got together for a photo shoot to make the Men of Mortuaries calendar to benefit KAMM CARES, a non-profit organization that helps individuals with breast cancer. The Men haven't made a calendar since 2008, but their website is still up if you want to check it out!
The Party of Your Life went on sale today, and it's already marked down on Amazon. So, now's the time to do some pre-holiday holiday shopping. I'm sure all the adults on your gift list are dying for a copy.
