Two Act play - The story centers around the Bellenasto and the Garrison families who were once close to each other, but they have drifted apart over the years. The families are unexpectantly brought back together when each has a family member die at the same time. In order to save money and time, both families decide to have their funeral services on the same day. Fortunately for them, the funeral home they chose is owned by Marshall Causeway whose business is struggling to survive. In order to get their business, Marshall makes the families a really good deal to beat his competitor - the big corporate funeral company of Burroughs and Burroughs Funeral Emporium. He promises each family as part of his new business plan to put the FUN back into FUNeral. What is discovered as the story unfolds is that the Bellenasto' s deceased patriarch had an affair with the Garrison family's matriarch. To make things more complicated, prior to getting married, the widow (Shelly) and widower (Stanley) were in a relationship. Between Marshall trying to put the FUN in FUNeral and the bickering of the families, something will eventually have to give in this humorous macabre situation. Will the families be able to forgive their deceased? Will the Causeway Funeral home be able to thrive in the new world? Will Shelly and Stanley pick up where they left off now their spouses have kicked the bucket? What other family secrets will fall out of the closet?

As luck would have it, someone beats her to murdering Mommy Dearest and now Beck gets to plan the tackiest funeral the world has ever seen for the worst woman she's ever known. But first, Beck has a few minor problems to deal with. First on the list? Avoid getting kidnapped. She also has to convince the police she didn't kill her mother. And then there's surviving a death curse .... With the help of her three best friends, cheesecake, and a little magic, Beck figures she can handle anything, even the mysterious and irritating Damon Matroviani, whose sexy good-looks light her panties on fire. All too soon, her life is turned inside out, and just when things are looking like they can't get any worse ... everything hits the fan."--Back cover.

Since first appearing in 1998, Garner's Modern American Usage has established itself as the preeminent guide to the effective use of the English language. Brimming with witty, erudite essays on troublesome words and phrases, GMAU authoritatively shows how to avoid the countless pitfalls that await unwary writers and speakers whether the issues relate to grammar, punctuation, word choice, or pronunciation. An exciting new feature of this third edition is Garner's Language-Change Index, which registers where each disputed usage in modern English falls on a five-stage continuum from nonacceptability (to the language community as a whole) to acceptability, giving the book a consistent standard throughout. GMAU is the first usage guide ever to incorporate such a language-change index. The judgments are based both on Garner's own original research in linguistic corpora and on his analysis of hundreds of earlier studies. Another first in this edition is the panel of critical readers: 120-plus commentators who have helped Garner reassess and update the text, so that every page has been improved. Bryan A. Garner is a writer, grammarian, lexicographer, teacher, and lawyer. He has written professionally about English usage for more than 28 years, and his work has achieved widespread renown. David Foster Wallace proclaimed that Bryan Garner is a genius and William Safire called the book excellent. In fact, due to the strength of his work on GMAU, Garner was the grammarian asked to write the grammar-and-usage chapter for the venerable Chicago Manual of Style. His advice on language matters is second to none.
