“My idiot son was supposed to have put a coin in each of my hands.”
The ferryman just nodded in commiseration.
“One for me and one for my wife, she passed about ten years back. There she is now.”

“Wait, I had the coins in my hands, I saw my son pluck them away at the viewing.”
The ferryman just shrugged and was swallowed up by the mist.
