The only reason there was a casket and not a pine box was because we intervened. It sat there for 2 weeks, until the county found 7 other bodies to bury one on top of another. Land is scarce, but acts of humanity are not far behind

    It is so sad that economy has to replace respect. A sad and eloquent story. Excellent capture.

    Very good James! Powerful story as Andrea said... and for this entry, death is certainly one of the most recurrent phobias and fears...
