Lacking a plot

My favorite quote so far today:
Ms. Mathams, 65, claims eight generations of relatives in the graveyard. “There’s Fred’s sister and her husband,” she said, gesturing to a grave after a dizzying tour of her family tree that somewhere included an explanation of where Fred fits in, exactly. “They were engaged for 40 years before they got married because his father didn’t approve.”
It's from a New York Times story on closing English cemeteries. A good read.
