little bird that sings
Comfort is growing up in a funeral home that her family owns. With her dog, Dismay, she "lives to serve" helping those who are sad to feel better. With the inspiration of her Great-great-aunt Florentine, Comfort choses to remember those who have died with "Life Notices" that she writes instead of the the lifeless "Death Notices" that are posted in the Aurora County News.
To relax, she and Dismay often picnic on Listening Rock with Declaration Johnson, her best friend. From there, she can see the valley where Snowberger Funeral Home and town of Snapfinger, Mississippi, lie.
Comfort has seen more than her share of dead people and knows all about funeral food and funeral manners....but will that prepare her for a death in her own family? Will Comfort's experience with death enable her to stand strong when the second death occurs....and the third?
At a time when she so desperately needs her, will Declaration Johnson, be her faithful friend? When a catastrophe happens, how will Comfort find the strength to survive?
It is not likely that you will ever forget this story and the lessons that you will learn as you see life through the eyes of Comfort Snowberger.
