I have grown up with this funeral home. I have always been involved in some way; whether it was cleaning the funeral home or cleaning the cars. I have also grown up with the people. They are neighbors and friends. I started my apprenticeship with my father in 1969. After attending Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science, I was licensed in 1973. Over the years there have been so many changes. If nothing else, it has been an interesting journey.
