Funeral Horror Tales: Ambrose Bierce’s “John Mortonson’s Funeral”

The surviving members of the family came severally every few minutes to the casket and wept above the placid features beneath the glass. This did them no good; it did no good to John Mortonson; but in the presence of death reason and philosophy are silent.Ambrose Bierce (John Mortonson’s Funeral)
