Folk wisdom, overheard by Mishah on Monday, as we were passing the local cemetery located nearby...

An elderly yet very energetic woman, speaking in Ukrainian to two or three elderly men:

No matter how often you visit him, how much you take care of him, a dead man is a dead man.

She wasn't complaining, nor was she sad. She just stated the facts - maybe even a little too cheerfully.
