My new bride and I lived in small apartment in a Mortuary in Mountain View, California after a brief Honeymoon in Monterey, California. Our apartment was next door to the Embalming Room. I was serving a Apprenticeship as a Funeral Director/Embalmer. My wife worked as a bookeeper for a soft water company. Our daughter was born in San Jose, Ca. while we were living in the Mortuary. The three of us later moved to San Francisco where I would be attending The San Francisco College of Mortuary Science under the G I Bill for Education. We lived in one of the subsidized apartments of the San Francisco Housing Authority. Our rent was only $30 a month. My wife worked for a carpet company as a bookeeper. We stayed in this apartment until I took and passed the state exams for licensing as a Funeral Director/Embalmer.
