Carolyn Green | 1 comments I'm looking for a YA novel, likely published after 1950 but before 2000. It's told in 1st person from the perspective of a boy in his early teens. He's a pastor son and is friends with an older lady who is adamant that she doesn't want her last words to be Psalm 23. I distinctly remember the scene where she dies and her last words are something like "give me a beer". At the funeral, the father looks at the slop that the boy wrote the last words on and ends up quoting Psalms 23 after all, much to the townspeople's disappointment.
