I accidentally rear -ended a car while driving our funeral home van.
The couple was unhurt, but the driver seemed shaken.
When we exchanged information, I remarked that her name sounded familiar.
“That’s because we made our funeral arrangements with you six months ago,” she said,
“but we never thought you’d come looking for us!”
