When Joe began collecting his daughter from the local kindergarten school in the hearse he used for the family business, the principal felt she had to act. She asked him to stop.
“It could frighten the other children,” she said.
“Not at all,” he replied. “It will teach them that death is natural. It’s not as if I have a body or even a coffin on board.”
“Nevertheless, I would prefer you wouldn’t.”
Three weeks later, after his daughter’s principal died of a sudden heart attack, he paused for a minute outside the school, her coffin in the back.
