Sound advice from beyond the grave
When my friend asked her dad about the purpose of his routine, he answered, “To have a conversation with her.”
Once my friend went with her father on the cemetery visit. Her father stood in silence in front of the tombstone. If he was holding a conversation, it was a silent one.
Afterwards my friend asked him what his wife tells him.
“She usually says, ‘It’s the beginning of the week; be sure to put on a clean shirt.’”
