Brothers share a willing girlfriend.

Ladies you can help with the boxes of shoes, because we all know how ladies love shoes."

*******************

The procession bringing Margaret's body home arrived shortly after 1 o'clock. Dan was in the hearse with her. He was amazed to see what had happened apparently overnight.

As they raised the main gate, he saw a 10-man honor guard waiting on both sides of the road. The men and women were dressed in black, from their boots, to their necks. Their helmets look like polished brass.

As the procession continued slowly towards the NEST, one rank moved out, to be joined by another, and another, leading the hearse in the direction of the stage.

Margaret had an honor guard of 30 men and women on each side of her, but that is not all. Every man and woman in the field was dressed exactly the same. Dan worried only him and his security team would be inappropriately dressed.

As the hearse came to a stop, and he exited, his security team was no longer behind him. He realized they were no longer necessary.

Lucius stood at attention, as the six pallbearers took Margaret's casket and hoisted it up onto their shoulders.

Lucius yelled, "Company: ATTENTION."

Everyone in the field stood straight as an arrow.

As they were approaching the stage area, Jemma and Patti pulled Dan behind a screen.

"You have 90 seconds to change general, move it."

If you've ever been in the military, you know you can do a lot in 90 seconds. Changing uniforms is one of them. Dan had no problem making that time limit.

He walked out and exchanged places with Lucius, while William Zabo was still eulogizing Margaret.

Something was bothering Dan, and then it hit him.

"Lucius I want you to call Doctor Goodman, and ask him if the tear between the right and left side of Margaret's heart could have been caused by the automobile accident."

Lucius didn't bother answering him; he just disappeared into the hangar. He was connected to Doctor Goodman's office, while he was seeing patients. When he heard the phone call was in reference to Margaret Post he accepted the call.

"Doctor, this is Colonel Lucius Canyon, I am General Morgan's adjutant, and he has a question for you. Ms. Post was in a car accident 12 days before the heart murmur started. Could the accident have caused the hole between the two sides of the heart?"

Doctor Goodman did not hedge. "Yes Colonel, if the accident was severe enough. Were there any other passengers in the car?"

"Yes Doctor, one person died, and the driver had a punctured lung and a bruised heart. She was on the same side Margaret was. The car was hit broadside, by a drunk driver in a truck. The SUV she was in rolled over three times before it came to a rest on her side."

"There is your answer Colonel. You have one bruised heart, and another heart that couldn't withstand the torque of the spinning. I'll go over the x-rays and my notes. I'll send a copy to the Temple police, and to you. At the very least, it's vehicular homicide, or negligent homicide. In my book, it's murder."
"It's the same in my book Doctor. Thank you very much."

As he rejoined the general, he tapped his hand. Dan looked down as Lucius nodded his head.

Dan said, "I'm going to kill that bastard."

"No you're not; he belongs to me, we agreed on that."

"I've changed my mind."

"Danny, you've got one arm in a sling, don't make me break your leg."

"Ladies and gentlemen, General Dan Morgan."

"We will discuss this later Lucius."

"This discussion is over."

********************

Margaret's request in her Last Will and Testament was to be cremated and her ashes spread in the Arboretum of the spacecraft. She knew she was too old to meet the parameters for the passengers, who would be flying into space, but she wanted to go with them. She also put in an addendum: "If that stubborn mule of mine ever decides to marry me, bury us in a joint plot in a place of his choosing."

Dan Morgan cried inconsolably.
