The life of a funeral director is often thought to be a solemn one. However, as a new book suggests, it can be a humorous one as well.
"Tales From Kentucky Funeral Homes" by Western Kentucky University Professor Emeritus of folk studies William Lynwood Montell collects stories from two dozen Kentucky funeral home directors and embalmers, including Taylor County Coroner Terry Dabney.
Along with his wife, Judy, Dabney has owned Parrott & Ramsey Funeral Home since 1981.
"It's just a very humanizing book," Dabney said.
