As we have seen, the small awkward details of the funeral are what set it apart from other funerals. The everyman’s two sons, Randy and Lonny, appear to have had a difficult relationship with their father. When they stand at the grave, they appear to struggle between dutifulness and feeling inauthentic in the complexity of their feelings. However, their resistance to the ritual of burial is brief and resolved without much incident, allowing the funeral to proceed smoothly. Maureen provides another moment of oddness when she lets the earth slip suggestively, almost sexually, from her fingers onto the coffin. However, we do not see the responses of the other mourners to this behavior. It appears that the gesture was private, only for Maureen’s benefit. This sets up Maureen as a sexual agent in relation to the everyman, separate from the others who knew him. The funeral comes to an end, and the life of the everyman has been formally marked by those who knew him. Yet it appears we still have a lot to learn about the details of his particular, unremarkable life.
