Rochestarians Dream the Darndest Dreams!

From Rochester's Democrat & Chronicle business section:

Denise Williams, the Rochester area's newest funeral home owner, is fulfilling a youthful dream.

When she was an 8-year-old living in the city's 19th Ward, Williams' uncle died suddenly and her mother had taken her children out of school to attend the out-of-town service.

The activity surrounding the burial had a lasting effect on her.

"To have seen him last so jovial in jeans and a T-shirt and the next time to see him cold but he's all dressed up, and to have been through everything to get to that point, I said I wanted to be a funeral director," she said. "Actually, I said I wanted to put people in caskets."
