SILENT REMOVAL

If someone dies lonely and nobody is left to settle his last matters, he is buried officially. Agents and administrators investigate, organize and utilize his matters. A procedure that often lasts no longer than a few days. In the end 80 years result in nothing more but a numbered urn in a slot.
