Excerpt from "Don Ysidro," by Bruce Holland Rogers: "A little after the priest came and went, I died. Word spread. People came to our house. My family asked first for things of mine that they wanted. Then the other neighbors. Don Francisco stood near my body and said, 'Don Ysidro, may I have your shovel? I need one, and your sons-in-law can dig new clay for Susana."
