49 calls a year is bairley enough to stay in buisness, and theres no way of knowing if new owners could bring that number up or not. Good luck with whatever you guys decide to do.

Town is a bit too small for us as well.

That's a difficult case load to deal with in my opinion. I was talking to the then new owner of my Uncle's former place in Indiana when I asked what the volume was he sighed and said three cases the prior year.
I don't have any knowledge of what volume he dealt with back in the 60's and 70's it certainly wasn't at that level. It was kinda comical to me then that we'd sit around and he'd make a comment about "I took Mrs. Smith to the hospital last week and she's overdue."

To update and old thread, its believed after speaking with a funeral director today that the 76 M-M was used up and buried with a bunch of others after they were retired from service use. I don't have proof other than what the man told me today.
