Women who will bring you out of this world.

"Listen if a woman can bring you into this world, they can certainly take you out," Doris V. Amen said.

No, she is not talking about killing or murdering. The Brooklyn born and raised woman is talking about her job as a funeral director at Jurek-Park Slope Funeral Home.

The Brooklyn based funeral home has become quite popular because of its $1,999 starting price for a wake. The package includes a coffin for viewing and afterward the body is put into a cardboard box for cremation or burial.

"Sometimes you just have to do it all yourself," Amen said.

She runs her funeral home solo, including prepping the bodies, picking them up, and dressing them for their wake.

"Don't let the blond hair fool you," she said to the New York Times.
