Len Fenerman comes to visit the Salmons. He delivers the hat that Susie had in her pocket; a hat handmade my Susie’s mother, with little bells and pompoms, that Susie refused to wear. Len Fenerman tells the family that the hat was used as a gag. He also says that there is too much blood in the earth, and they now have to work with the assumption that Susie is dead. Len Fenerman leaves, and each family member is in his/her own private grief; Susie’s mother sitting on the carpet over the hat, Lindsey standing stiff, and Susie’s father going upstairs and sobbing into Holiday’s fur.
