The classic Y incision is evidence of an autopsy, conducted at the county medical examiners office. The mask worn by the embalmer prevents the hazardous inhalation of formaldehyde.

Few see inside a morgue. That's the way it should be, right? Not according to John Beckwith Jr., CEO of Golden Gate Funeral Home, and the subject of this week's cover story. Feel free to take a peek inside. You're invited.

Wow, I thought I could make it through this album, but I'm more squeamish than I realized. I don't think I could work in a funeral home, but I certainly appreciate the service they provide. I don't know what this country would do without well-run funeral homes. It's a very specific industry, but everyone has to use it at some point.
