Raymond Garett Jr. Junior Staff Member/ Funeral Assistant, Vehicle maintenance/upkeep

I take my job seriously and I look forward to the day that I can be just like my Papa and work funerals. My favorite thing to do here is the cleaning, because I want this place to look nice. When I grow up, I'm going to still work here. Maybe I'll even decide for us to switch to blue cars!
