Should I leave car sales to become a cemetery / funeral home salesman?

I have been offered a job with a recognized funeral home to be a salesman. The car business has treated me very well but is DEAD now due to the way things are and I would like to get into something where people have to buy the product. I made 62k my first year in car sales. Not half that this year. What you think?
