'Grandma is in the trunk.'

My parents are driving home now after putting my Grandmother's things in order and picking up her remains. She is still speaking from the dead, in letters she saved, in all of her things. The weight of difficult person is still felt after they are gone. As my parents drive home, I imagine aspects of 'As I Lay Dying' will be present. The truth is always more true in my head than it is in reality.
