    not that i can remember although in Hawaii i saw a homeless man drunk who looked dead and everyone around called paramedics. The man ended up waking up after a few minutes of shaking although the paramedics seemed to know his name before they got there. go figure

    Yes, I used to work in a funeral home - for a very brief time.  We were required to come in the back door and that was where they bodies they were working on were laid out.  Creeped me out.  When they told me one afternoon that they would be out of the office and I was going to have to help somebody when they delivered a body - I said no, and quit soon after that.

    Yes I have, it was very sad.  I was living in a downtown area of Baltimore and I went out to walk my dog the morning after a really bad ice and snow storm the night before.  One of the homeless who I did not recognize was laying in the alley on a steam area.  It's very sad to see others crying around someone and no one called the parametics.  It is an image I will never forget - one that sparked my drive to help out with homeless and others in need of help.  Especially our children.  To this day I can't help but think about who in his life will be missing him, loving him even though he is no longer with us.

    Yes, unfortunately I've seen so many dead people over the years. As a nurse it's just part of the job. Things have changed a bit now in nursing I think, but one of our main jobs, in addition to caring for patients who were dying, when death had ocurred you had to perform what was called 'Last Offices'. This was basically washing the body - at one time some body orifices were also packed - and putting a temporary mortuary shroud on the patient. You made them as presentable as you could for the family members who wanted to see their loved one. I must have been just over 16 years old the first dead person I saw, but as I said, I have seen so many over the years.
