    Her funeral was 50 miles from home (long story), so her sister arranged the funeral mass. Unfortunately, the normal priest, who (a) was not insane and (b) knew the family, was called away and we got stuck with a substitute who knew nothing about us. He spent the entire service ranting against right wing tropes, including liberals (not knowing my mother was a left of left lefty, along with everyone else in the room) and Castro's Cuba, and communist indoctrination of children in our schools, and how the US was going to hell in a hand basket.

    Needless to say, it wasn't really the cathartic ritual we needed in the moment.
