Harold was at Mildred’s funeral, at their parish church. All throughout the days immediately following her decease, he dealt with the requisite droll, mundane, polite behavior at the wake, followed by the funeral cortege, and the Mass. He listened attentively as Father McKernan implored the Divine Mercy, in the hope that she’d be allowed into Heaven, into Eternal beatitude. After all that, he politely agreed to attend the reception at a local restaurant. He took a prayer card from a table at the funeral home, with all her information on it. When he arrived home, he quietly placed it in a container, with several dozen other cards like it, all from previous funerals.
