100 Years - An Insider's View

For anyone who watches HGTV's "Fixer Upper", your eye might dart past the caskets to the back right corner while you squeal, "Shiplap!!!"  For the rest who don't watch the show, you are definitely missing out. Ok, initial excitement and longing for that shiplap to use in my current house aside, this is the basement of the "old, old" funeral home.

My sisters were all too young to remember anything about the building, so I am putting all my interior photographs together so that we can "walk" into the building where our family's business began.

100 Years - Our Point of View

Yesterday, it was announced that 2016 is the 100th anniversary of the business of Dunn Funeral Home.  Believing that pictures are indeed worth a thousand words, the FB post inspired me to illustrate some of the highlights included in yesterday's announcement.

This first photograph is a slide, taken by Eugene Denney, our dad, and  recently discovered by my sister, Rose, and her daughter, Hannah.  This is, by far, the best image of the funeral home I have seen.  As a little girl, it seemed like a magnificent building.  It still does.
