further funeral home news
In more funeral home news, I just read that the old Bultman Funeral Home will be converted to a Borders bookstore.
It's been empty since Katrina. I remember going to a few funerals there. It was beautiful, like a rambling plantation, a bit frayed at the edges.
What I hadn't realized was that had hosted services for both Jefferson Davis and Jayne Mansfield in its 120 years.
Now, instead of stale coffee from those ancient coffee urns, I suppose there will be overpriced frappuccinos from surly grad students.
Doesn't matter, I just want to be able to read a copy of US magazine on the spot that Jayne Mansfield's corpse once lay.
