Chip


My uncle, Chip, died early yesterday morning (he had been ill for many years) and was interred today. I'll play the accordion tonight in his honor. (Note: This is the same tomb my grandfather and several previous generations are buried in. Burials are a cozy business in this town.)

  2. I'm really sorry.
    It's interesting to see such a crypt. Several generations --your family has a long history in New Orleans.
