Is Spring ever going to arrive? I am confident that by the time the Spring Seminar rolls around it will be much warmer and by August we will be wishing for some of these cool days. Once again, we have put together a great seminar with our friends from the Embalmers Assoc of Cleveland. I look forward to to seeing you all at Brennans in a few weeks. Get your reservations in early. Let us know what programs/ topics you would like to see at one of the seminars.
See you at Brennans,
Darrell Waite, President OEA
I would like to take this time to thank all of the friends who expressed their sympathy at the death of my dad, George Hicks. Maybe you called, sent flowers, or attended the services… your thoughtfulness is very much appreciated by all in my family. God Bless you all!
All the Best,
David G. Hicks, MBIE

EMBALMING BEST PRACTICES
The objectives of embalming in the 21st century may well be temporary preservation, sanitizing and restoration of the deceased human body but the ultimate goal is the satisfaction of the family and friends in the presentation of an acceptable appearance of the deceased.
Join Robert Mayer on May 30th at 8a.m. when he will present an embalming seminar demonstrating techniques garnered over his more than 50 years in the preparation room.
The licensed funeral director, embalmer, apprentice and mortuary student will find valuable information in this one-hour seminar.
Included in this three-part seminar : (1) A technique for the preparation of the un-autopsied body using 14 body conditions as illustrations, (2) preparing for identification or viewing the deceased when the family requests, “NO EMBALMING,” (3) protocols for preparation treatments of the long bone and skin donor.
