Caitlin Doughtry's life may just be my ultimate career crush.
She studied medieval history with a focus on death and burial rituals (have I ever told you about my favorite university class - "honoring the dead?")
Later, after researching current burial practices, she decided that she wanted to take some of what she learned about family participation and grieving and put it into practice today. She enrolled in The Order of the Good Death which hearkens back to a time when publications and books on "how to die well" were a common genre of literature.
If you too, are "death-phobic" or just morbidly curious, I suggest you check her out.
