Relations

This was an actual conversation in 1963 between two of my cousins who only knew each other professionally and both arrived at a funeral service:

Mrs. Crockett: "Good morning, Mrs. Butler"
Mrs. Butler: "Good morning, Mrs. Crockett"
Mrs. Crockett: "Are you here for services?"
Mrs. Butler: "Yes, I'm here for my cousin's funeral."
Mrs. Crockett: "I'm here for my father's funeral."
