And They Should...
carry our bodies down by the river after we die. There, they will bathe us, wrap us in fine silk and then let the slow currents whisk us away. They'll watch until we're out of sight - we might get snagged by a jutting rock or a stray bush branch - then, they'll wade into the cold water and free us from the tangles. They'll hope for unimpeded progress down the river...either that, or a peaceful descent down to the river bottom.
Either way...out of sight, out of mind, out of their hands - into someone else's.
Straight down the middle.
Or a slow descent to the bottom.
Either way is fine.
