"Little Mary" Reese spent her childhood living, working, and playing in a funeral home. Her mother, Mrs. Mary Resse ("Big Mary"), was well known and resepected in the African American community in Los Angeles through the operation of a prestigious black funeral home. Through this, Little Mary grew up well-acquainted with death and its business.
Here, Little Mary tells the story of what really happens behind the embalming room doors. The light and the dark side of life, in South Central Los Angeles, California, where one's color is a major issue and her strained relationship with her mother proved to be a challenge.
Soul Survivor explains the depths of human emotions, both real and imagined.
