Dearly Departed, takes place in current day and is set in the buckle of the bible belt. It is about a very southern family and their neighbors, handling the death and funeral of Bud (uncle, husband, father, neighbor, friend (sort of)). The mayhem, confusion, silliness and slapstick that ensues brings together a hilarious cast of characters that you can’t help but laugh at.
