About This Blog
“Morguie” is the narrator behind the telling of true-life experiences through the voice of a mere house mouse. The mouse’s journal is transcribed by a mortal named “CJ” even though the blog shows MorgueMouse as the ‘author.’ At this point, which is frankly the BIRTH time of this blog, CJ remains to be discovered in the real-world matters of these articles. However, what can be understood, and should be inferred, is that CJ happens to have real-life workaday knowledge of the goings-on behind the closed doors in the mortuary world, as a former funeral director and embalmer. CJ had been ‘universally trained’ in the funeral profession to include matters about cremation, cemetery business, mortuary business, and total care and preparation of the deceased.
Although CJ does not practice in the funeral service profession any longer, she finds it impossible to forget. The characters and descriptions contained in these posts are derived from real situations and events. Some fictionalization or elements have been incorporated to enable certain characters to ease the storytelling and ease the continuity or flow of the approach .
Of course decency and dignity are paramount in the protection of the privacy of the real-world people contained within this blog. Their grief and sorrow, among other things, has enabled CJ to learn so much more about people, families, and the deceased themselves. CJ is humbled to have had such in-depth first-person witness to the spectrum of grief and unique tributes shown in the honoring of our beloved departed ones.
Any resemblance of the characters or names of persons is purely accidental, or coincidental to any living or dead. All care and consideration for the real folks behind the stories is being exercised to shield their very private and sacred experiences without further adding to their burdens of grief, loss, and personal pain. The mouse is the vehicle that drives the journal, CJ merely controls the wheel and the pedals. CJ and Morguie feel the utmost privilege and honor for having had the opportunity to serve and bear witness to the stories of families, and the honoring of their loved ones. They have been enriched and blessed to have been a part.
