The vital importance of being embalmed

Charles Cowling

 

 

Contrary to popular belief, embalming a body is not required by law.

However, every funeral home requires it for an open casket service. Otherwise, there will be odors and the body may look grotesque for viewing, which affects a funeral home’s reputation.
