I don’t need to mention that Death is a natural fact of our life, no one can avoid or sidestep it. It doesn’t have any fix time to happen – a universal truth!
This is why, funeral directors in Melbourne and other such cities have to be on call all the time, irrespective of time and day. No matter whether it’s 2 at midnight or it’s a Sunday or any holiday, funeral director’s phone can ring any time asking him to rush because so-and-so has died and his or her funeral is to be planned or directed.
Moreover like any other profession they too have to deal with stress, do tough work that most of us don’t even think about, and they too have to face challenges. It’s just a few hours they get to organise a funeral, that to according to the preferences and requirements of the family of deceased.
Not only this, the funeral directors have to take care of the grieving family members by controlling and making them relaxed. They perform the major role in serving and calming down the family and friends of bereaved in their critical time of need. Because alike the funeral directors, many a times passing of a loved one is an unexpected, unprepared and uninformed moment for the family which leaves them shocked and surprising to handle the situation and deal with it.
Hence, funeral director is the profile that asks one to perform an emotional job. And this is why, it has become a rewarding occupation that allows one to deal with and help the one who is at the pick of grief and facing the saddest moment of his life.
