    Caitlin is such an obvious celebrity…but equally she is the last person you'd see and think, "hey, she's gonna be famous one day." She's also such a perfect kind of…anti-celebrity I will call it (kind of like anti-hero but in regard to a fame-seeking personality like a Kardashian would ooze everywhere one goes being what I am considering) but so red carpet she seems with that totally charismatic, engaging, animated and intelligent way she speaks…anti?…it's like…I don't even know what to make of her or how she got here but at the same time, it's just like….well, of course she became this and I don't think I have to tell you how she got here it's so….well….duhhh.

    I lost my grandpa last year. We stayed with his body for almost thirty minutes telling stories. While my grandma took off his wedding ring, I took off his watch. It was the most surreal thing because it didn’t feel like him.

    My mom did not understand when she left the hospital and that she was dying. It wasn’t till she got home and I was reading through her paperwork that I found out she only had about 4 to 6 weeks to live by looking it up on Google. It was some of the hardest news I ever had to break to my mom. Before immediately calling for hospice because we had no clue how quick the cancer would take her brain out. She was diagnosed with leptomeningeal carcinomatosis. I’m glad we knew so we could get her comfort care for her transition.

    31-year embalmer here. Caitlin is precious, but not "the authority" on embalming. No one is. However, to define a few things mentioned here. "AV Plugs" are not always used. We never use them. For leakage, we would bath the body and then dress them in plastic pants. Not mentioned here from the series Six Feet Under was the huge error within the opening of the show. Every episode started with an embalming machine filled with blue fluid. That would never happen. ALL embalming fluids are either tinted with warm tones, or are colorless. Most are pink or red. NONE are blue. Although we do use some topical liquids and cavity fluids that are blue-ish, they are NEVER put in an embalming machine. That show's opening sequence was the biggest deviation from reality, and no one mentioned it? Lastly, "Angel Lust". They say here that it doesn't happen. I agree that men cannot die with erections, buy many men become engorged during embalming; especially in difficult cases where you must increase the pressure & flow of the injection. When the embalming machine is stopped, the wood disappears. But yes, erections are possible after death.

    My first experience with death, was when my Brother died in Vietnam. I was 11. The Marine on duty had to help me. It wasn’t that bad. But I could see some fingers missing in his gloves. We could not touch him because his coffin was sealed in glass on the inside. I’m curious about the injuries suffered by tornado victims. Please do a video on that. The only picture I’ve seen was a guy who had a board through his head & that was pretty cool looking.
