Richard Fisher's Funeral by Kellie Powell
Richard Fisher's Funeral
Drew, a young, troubled woman, has a panic attack prior to her estranged father's funeral, and is confronted by Jayna, her late father's fiancee. Jayna attempts to convince Drew that her abusive father deserves her forgiveness now that he is dead. Drew refuses politely, but Jayna does not accept this. Cornered and defensive, Drew finally explodes at Jayna, and by extension, at her deceased father.
