JONI IS REALLY SAD
Joni trips on the step as she enters Murdock Funeral Home. She passes Michael Murdock who flashes her a large plastic smile. Joni does not respond.
She sees the layout: the casket with Robert is straight ahead, a cluster of people—presumably the family—stands past the casket, and a line is queued to view the body. Joni joins the line to wait her turn. Two people turn toward her. Their expressions, like Joni’s, are blank.
