    "It's sad enough to bury a child, but if we're going to have a decent funeral I must insist on the family plot being properly maintained. I should think you would have the statuary cleaned as that horrid figure of a weeping woman on his wife's grave is simply covered with mildew. The child's father is the only survivor and I don't wish to make this any more depressing than it already is."
    "I'm sorry, Madam, but I don't understand. We have no statuary like that in our cemetery."

      That could easily be the start of - or at least part of - a much longer story.
