The job of a funeral director and embalmer

With Halloween right around the corner we are wrapping up our spooky Now You Know series with something a little unexpected.

In the past few weeks we have been featuring haunted places in Northern Michigan.

I stepped foot inside of the eerie Bowers Harbor Inn in Traverse City to see if ghost Genevive was present.

I tip toed through the History Center of Traverse City, which used to be the old City library that an old librarian still haunts.

And in my last venture, I battled goosebumps at the Blue Pelican Inn in Central Lake that a few lost spirits still call home.

This week I steered away from the haunted theme and decided to step into the shoes of a funeral director and see how she preps the deceased for their funeral.

Tune in tonight at 6:30 on ABC 29&8 to see the behind the scenes work of a funeral director and embalmer.
