     In this drama,The Dear Departed ,by William Stanley Houghton satirizes(critisizes)the degradation of moral values in respect and care within  the members of the family itself.

       It starts like this when the slater family got to know that their grandpa paved way heavenly  abode  at seventy two.The drama is  likely seemed to take place two weeks after his death.The fourteenth day was the mourning day for the family.He spent his last days with Mrs.Slater but before he lived with Mrs.Jordan.Slater never wanted to divide up the belongings of grandpa with mrs.jordan  as she acheived what she planned to get grandpa 's bureau dowm from his room and pretend to her sis ' that she won it at an second hand auction.The humurous thing is that both of them thought that their grandpa is dead. The fact is that he is still living in upstairs,and when he came down,the family portraits him as transmigrated one.He comes to know that his daughters were only after his valuables and didn 't even dare to care about him.So,now here 's a funny stuff when they heard the  words sayin ' that he is goin ' to be married to a lady in the church.

                         This drama signifies that how the present generation is reacting towards  the elders.The worldly people are after materealistic things , not the care and affectionate they have for the lonely old aged ones.How close we are to them and even a bit time we spend with them,we should ask ourselves.
