Mom’s Quick Take on Death
Me: Mom, what is death?
Mom: Oh, that’s when you get on your knees, crawl on the ground and get in the dirt. That’s it.
Your family and friends come and bring some flowers they fixed and talk about the good things you did, if you did any.
If you didn’t, it’s a very difficult time for everybody.
It takes about two hours … that’s a short time or long time.

I was hoping someone else could take care of the dirt for me when I die. So that’s a bit of a shocker for me.
Oh my – that is too the point!
