As she stood by her husband's grave her senses were raw. She could smell the newly dug earth as it mixed with the scent from the beautiful floral tributes. But most of all, she could hear his friends' words echoing around her brain.

"A real gentleman and a ray of sunshine."

"He was a good and honest man."

"Salt of the earth he was; he'll be sadly missed."

Tears came to her eyes as her tongue searched the gaps in her gums where teeth used to be.

"They know nothing," she said out loud and then spat on his headstone.
