We Need Season Two on DVD!

Thelma Harper goes to pay her respect to her dearly departed Carl on his birthday. When she can't get anybody in the family to go with her, she goes alone. She learns that he is buried next to a strange woman. Furious, she goes home and is greeted by Ellen who has her phone off the hook to avoid the telephone call. Ellen is confronted by Vint and Naomi about her behavior. Anyway, Thelma explains that Carl is buried next to a strange woman. Of course, Ellen takes control and gets the truth out of the cemetery director that there has been a mistake. It's not Carl buried there. The headstone was misplaced in error. Of course, it only makes more problems because Thelma has poured out her heart to Clive what is his name. Now, Thelma has to resolve her relationship with Carl. How will he forgive her?
