Because Kevin insisted that he stood up, but did die, I present part II.  

Part I may be found here...


The auto-hearse pulled up to the circular driveway in front of the empty crematorium chapel.  Database connections were attempted and some were made.  Reverend Pepper’s kindly image flicked onto the Mylar screen in the automatic chapel.  Jaybot and Chrisbot looked virtually on.  It began...

I am a bit conflicted on whether or not I want to go see it.
