My mother-in-law died peacefully this morning before breakfast.Homemade food began arriving in time for lunch.This photo captures most of what arrived after 5:00 pm.

In the rural South no one ever wonders what they’ll eat when they
have to plan a funeral.

    Last month I read Being Dead Is No Excuse some weeks after losing my dad and being reminded of the food that pours in. Jo was a lovely and special person.
