The Art of Undertaking | From our Limited Series of prints by Southern Calls
“Red clay fills the hole left in our hearts. Only flowers remain as guardians of the grave, until they too wither and die. Rows of headstones remind us of a new reality. Homeward bound.” Luke Teague, Southern Calls, Associate Editor
Donna Vaughn, owner of Vaughn Funeral Home in Spring City, Tennessee, and our Passions feature from Issue 9, was brought home from the hospital as a newborn in this now collectable coach by her funeral director father, Alfred “Tink” Vaughn. The vintage 1955 Meteor Cadillac hearse combination was taken out of service in the mid-1960s and relegated to the family farm, where it sat for decades before being rescued, or perhaps resurrected, from its shallow grave.
