Jessica Bemis Ward, the compiler, is an experienced cook, hostess, and, most importantly, funeral goer! Having married into a large, well-known (and aging) family over 40 years ago, she has many times found herself in the midst of funeral arrangements. She shares her ringside observations in this book. Her wit and wisdom are bountiful, her suggestions helpful, and her taste in both food and style, "to die for."
