husband, Bert, rests peacefully. Maude, overcome with grief, shares a heartfelt farewell, cherishing the moments in the quiet chapel.

As Maude stands beside Bert’s casket, memories of their life together flood her thoughts. The mortuary assistant, a compassionate soul named Emily, gives her the space she needs, understanding the weight of her loss. The air in the Chapel of Rest is heavy with sorrow, but there’s also a sense of reverence.

Emily, having witnessed the pain of grieving families, knows the importance of offering solace beyond the technicalities of her role. She gently suggests that Maude take her time, assuring her that she is there whenever she’s ready to leave. Maude nods appreciatively, acknowledging the understanding in Emily’s eyes.

Over the next hour, Maude reflects on the journey she and Bert shared. She talks to him as if he can hear her, recounting the joys, the challenges, and the love that defined their marriage. In those quiet moments, the Chapel of Rest becomes a sanctuary for Maude to express her emotions freely.
