    He was a good man.
    The preacher cried - they all cried...
    Except the widow.

    This was written in memory of a real life incident I personally witnessed within my family clan. The husband died, the wife did not cry...her boyfriend (who is now her husband of 23 years) was sitting next to her during the funeral.
