Jane’s father, Jerry, died in August. He was buried in New Jersey, and the family congregated to say goodbye. At the cemetery, many people tossed ritual shovels full of dirt into the grave, but when they were done, most of the dirt was still in a big pile. Jerry had seventeen grandchildren, and without a word being spoken, they started shoveling. An hour later, the grave was completely full.
