Definition
burying a dead body
  • It may be that his frightened repentance of the night and morning had not eaten in, but this dehumanizing interment of her who had been so pathetically human shook him utterly, and as he crouched again on the high stool in the laboratory he swore faith to his wife .... to Zenith .... to business efficiency .... to the Boosters' Club .... to every faith of the Clan of Good Fellows.
