Cry Havoc! And let loose the Dobermans of war!
Life is too short to take seriously, none of us get out of it alive.
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be.Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

So the body was still preserved until the glass plate covering the face was broken? Reminds me of that one documentary on History Channel about those monks that found the lead casket on their grounds and opening it discovered the remains of a man of considerable height with a woman both embracing each other but the moment the air touched them they started to crumble to dust. It was supposedly believed to be King Arthur. And then there was that one about *I think* about the last wife of King Henry VIII's casket being found in a field, the casket dug up by a farmer who of course opened it to discover a beautiful preserved woman inside but as was the case, the moment the air touched it, it began to decay. It was believed to be Catherine Parr.
