Description: 

At the top of a slope behind the house, in "a small clump" of cedars "somehow shaggily formal against the starred sky," is the McCallums' family burial place (59). The story ends in this "small rectangle of earth enclosed by a low brick coping" (59). At present it contains only "two plain granite slabs set upright in the earth" marking the graves of "Old Anse and Mrs. Anse" (59-60). But the future resting places for the family's next two generations have already been determined, so Gombault knows where to put Buddy's leg
