Met a friend whose mother had just died. He had supported her for many years. One with several siblings; he is the one who supports.
Private funeral. Grave set, by him, alone. Look at his hand; bandaged finger. Said he had been preparing the grave, before the funeral. Had to rake; get the grave just right.
Ripped off most of the skin on one finger. The blisters from no stopping. The blisters from cannot stop.
Howlings that cannot stop.
