A beloved elderly grandmother died in Manhattan in the presence of a loving family so besotted with grief that they hadn't made any funeral plans. But strength can gather at the most stressful times. They called us, an old fashioned home funeral with clergy in the Manhattan apartment was arranged. The grandson drove to Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollow, New York, to select a burial plot in the green section of the cemetery. We brought the shroud and the wicker tray to the apartment, and we set out with hearse and four limousines a day later, in lovely light snow, for this most gorgeous and tender green burial. Moments like these are unforgettable for families, and of course, for us, as well.
