• Maurice Fitzgerald (Letters, November 30) is quite right. Sure, my poor heart is nearly as broken as my overburdened back from shouldering all those coffins on the long walk to their graves.
It should stop, and who's to say Maurice is wrong?
We should lead by example and not be expected to be placed in a coffin and horsed all over town before arriving at a faraway place of internment. What's wrong with the front garden?
