Coroner Thederen -
Thank you for contacting me. I know it must be an unpleasant task to alert anyone to the death of a loved one, but your frank and professional manner did nothing to further aggravate the distress caused by Mother's passing. That is all one can ask from such a thing, I believe.
I understand the difficulty in storing cadavers, and will be arriving soon after this message reaches you with a carrage to bear her away in. There is one other matter I'd like your counsel on, if it isn't too much trouble.
Mother's wish was always to be buried in a family vault, and so it falls to me to restore a site to this purpose. I feel it's a macabre thing to ask, but considering your occupation, could provide me a recommendation of any architect experienced in such a task? I would greatly appreciate any help you have to offer
Thank you again, Sir. I expect to arrive before dusk.
