“A coffin-maker measures up a customer at his blacksmith’s forge, he was a highly respected craftsman in a community and repaired all manner of farm tools. He was also the local undertaker. I remember there was a cold rain outside, so I welcomed the heat and the sound of the bellows blowing the flames of the fire.”
