Small Town Coroner
In my work I am sometimes not sensitive to the loss of others. I guess I noticed that as my in laws have moved on. I know that the bodies hold nothing but physical things. The true essensce and soul of a person is not let in the body but moves on. It's so hard to let people go when you think the body is all there is. I guess that is why people don't understand what I do. I know that when I see a picture of my wife or daughter that is how I remember them, not as they were when they died. I know it's not for everyone to understand but it's true. I better get going midnight is nudging his food bowl across the floor, meaning he is hungry.
