Tales from the Cemetery

Don Alesi worked for nearly thirty years at a local cemetery.  He helped thousands of people through some of the hardest times of their lives. After serving in the military, Don returned home and needed to find a job. A friend of the family offered him a job with benefits as a gravedigger. He accepted the job thinking he would keep it until something better came along. He found that he loved the job and was eventually promoted to director.  After he retired Don decided to write his experiences in a memoir.

Changes to Lynda.com

Due to unforseen complications on their end, LinkedIn has put a hold on changing Lynda.com to LinkedIn Learning. LinkedIn has not yet determined how long this pause will last. Lynda.com will continue to function as usual, so you may still access that content while we wait for our new transition date. We apologize for any confusion and inconvenience. We are doing everything we can on our end to work with LinkedIn to make this transition as seamless as possible. As soon as we have more information, we will update this blog.
