    Few things make me want to renounce my membership more than open Q and A sessions at stake training meetings.

    Interesting. As I think about this, I realize that I have yet to meet an LDS mortician or an LDS someone who worked for one (and strangely, I've known several) who doesn't have a similar batshit crazy story like this. I mean, I've never heard one where it was Satan, but they seem to all believe they've seen and spoken with a ghost/spirit at some point. I get the sense that it's part of the LDS after-life care culture.

    I've only known one non-LDS person in the field. She grew up in a funeral home and was mildly religious. I asked her if she had any cool stories of seeing spirits and what not and she was like "uh no, I'm not crazy, just the daughter of a mortician."

    Tbh, they look kind of similar, just a few decades apart.

    What an anticlimatic scene. Satan in a rocking chair ...
