Michigan Radio: Mortuary Science alumni Tyler Bernstein and Thomas Lynch discuss life as funeral directors

I have found, after a half-century of doing this, that it is by getting the dead where they need to go that the living get where they need to be.  {Thomas Lynch} 

On the July 1, 2019, episode of Stateside, a Michigan Public Radio show, two Wayne State University mortuary science alumni talk about their career paths as part of the program's "Work in Progress" series, which features conversations between someone just starting out in a career and someone who is reaching the end of their professional life.

In "Comfort during sorrow: The peaks and valleys of life as a funeral director," Tyler Bernstein '18 and Thomas Lynch '73, a semi-retired funeral director for Lynch & Sons Funeral Home in Milford, exchange advice and discuss what attracted them to the profession.
