He tried every way in the world to convince Charles Edward that everyone needed burial insurance. Charlie kept telling this guy he didn’t need no burial insurance it was just a waste of money. The insurance salesman asked Charlie what would happen when he died. Charles Edward’s response was somebody would come along and bury him cause you didn’t see no dead people laying around in the ditches. The insurance man went back to the city never to be seen in Sumner again.
Well Charles Edward passed away a few years ago and he was right. His family got together and paid to have him buried in the local cemetery. The trailer was cleared away and the lawnmowers sold. And there still aint no dead people lying in the ditches.
