TCW gave me a set of books for Christmas. This is the first one....
"After the solemnity of the church service and finality of the grave, the people of the Mississippi Delta are just dying to get to the hours of the bereaved for the reception. Sometimes we talk bad about the deceased between the grave and the tomato aspic, but we straighten up and are on best behaviour the minute we get to the house. We're people with a strong sense of community, and being dead is no impediment to belonging to it. We won't forget you just because you've up and died. We may even like you better and visit you more often."
