The passage from Seed Catalogue describing the day of his mother's wake:

 

"This is what happened-at my mother's wake. This

is a fact-the World Series was in progress. The

Cincinnati Reds were playing the Detroit Tigers.

It was raining. The road to the graveyard was barely

passable. The horse was standing still. Bring me

the radish seeds, my mother whispered."
