Ole lay slowly dying in his bedroom. The family moved around the house speaking in hushed voices, women were in the kitchen preparing food for the visitors who would arrive after the announcement of his death.

Lena visited Ole, sitting on the edge of his bed as the family moved in around the edges.

"Is that you, Lena?" Ole asked.
"Yes, Ole, and the family is here also."
"Is everyone here?" he asked weakly.
"Yes, Ole," she replied, wiping a tear from her cheek.
"If you're all in here, then why is the kitchen light still on?"
