You'll do well in life to mostly believe your job is to comfort and guide people, not try to convince them their beliefs are stupid and wrong. I am not just speaking of matters of the supernatural here, either.

You're a wise man (?) to fully assess the beliefs of the family before speaking much. Keep doing that.

Female, actually, though I'm often mistaken for a butch lesbian on account of my short hair and ability to drive a stick. :-P

Over the months that I've been on TTA, there have been numerous cries for help along the lines of...
"I'm going to my father/mother/uncle etc's funeral tomorrow. How do I stay sane / say the 'right' things / avoid having a tantrum etc. and still stay true to my (non)beliefs?"

Or words to that effect.

Many and more would be grateful for advice from a pro.

I hope I can be of help to anyone who needs it. :-)
If ever a thread comes up and I somehow miss it, feel free to point someone in my direction for questions.

Agree completely. There are a couple people here who need embalming.

"Female, actually, though I'm often mistaken for a butch lesbian on account of my short hair and ability to drive a stick." - I so relate - and an Undertaker! You got it all going on Ohio Sky!

There's a fairly eclectic crowd here and the international perspective is comforting - especially if one feels cast out of the asylum.
