Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone.
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
~WH Auden (Funeral Blues, excerpt)
When you have lost a loved one, the last thing you want to dwell on are the details of their burial. It feels like an unnecessary burden in addition to everything else in your life—between work, maybe school, the family, the apologies that seem somewhat pointless, and trying to compose yourself well enough to function as a human being again—and the only thing you know is you don’t want to dwell on that. You need somebody else to focus on the details of the burial; it’s too much for you (that would mean saying goodbye for good). So you search for a good funeral home. For such a small state, you realize there are many funeral homes in RI, but your eye wanders down to the one that says JJ Duffy Funeral Home. On the day of the funeral everything goes smoothly and you cannot recall ever having to stress about a single aspect of the event.
