    Great-Aunt Dies while Cooking Dinner… And Family Eats Dinner

    The entire extended family — everyone, very poor — all came to my great-aunt’s house for dinner every Sunday night, for decades. The weekly luxury. When she was in her 90s, she laid down her head while cooking the dinner, and died. The whole family arrived over the next hours, as scheduled. They ate the dinner. It’s what she would have wanted.
