"Why are you looking so glum Ralph? Did someone scarper with all the ham sandwiches?"
"No, but I got a big mouthful of capers when I tasted Miss Minnie's offering to the refreshment table. That stuff belongs in the trash. What a cruel thing to do to a perfectly good piece of pork."
Sharon grinned. "You got no taste Ralphie. But, it was a lovely funeral though, wasn't it? Big Eddie would have been so proud of his little nephew playing Amazing Grace on his penny whistle. It was charming. He always said that kid was talented."
"Yeah, great funeral, nicely done, but it was pure bedlam when they accidentally dropped the coffin into the trench and Big Eddie rolled out. What a shocker. Glossy pink lipstick and fishnet stockings with seams. Who knew?"
Sharon shook her head. "But did they really have to bury that perfectly good Coach bag with him? What a waste."
