Afternoon edition: Funeral director becomes WNBA’s all-time leading rebounder
We’ve got plenty of stories to tell you this afternoon, however, we felt that “topping our charts” was this article from ESPN.com that that chronicles a Tuesday night game in which WNBA player Sylvia Fowles became the all-time leading rebounder in the history of that basketball league. Sports leading Funeral Director Daily headlines??
The fact is that the 34-year old Fowles has used her off-season time to study mortuary science and intends to work as a funeral director once her playing days are over. As a matter of fact, I know in Minnesota where she has done her clinical rotations, and I’m guessing some firm will be lucky to have her as an employee when her basketball career concludes. Here’s a story from a couple of years ago that Funeral Director Daily wrote on Fowles accomplishment that year as Most Valuable Player in the WNBA.
We’ve also got a story on Regis Philbin and his death care wishes that will be carried out to be buried at the Cedar Grove Cemetery on the campus of his alma mater, The University of Notre Dame. And, you will find stories pertaining to a funeral directors and his work in his community and a story of a group of citizens in a Texas town trying to stop a crematory from operating.
