The business of organising Terry’s funeral seemed the most straightforward of Paolo’s jobs right now. Livia explained what she wanted. Glass funeral carriage drawn by four black horses, led to the church by an Italian tenor, sharing classic arias with the communities along the way. Lavish, admittedly, but one of the ways a ‘family’ and family business kept in business was by doing things that mattered in style. And this mattered.
Mary was certain this should not be a problem for her brother.
“Now Livia, are dere any special arrangements ya need?”
“Isn’t this special enough, Mary?” asked Paolo naively.
