279 NuisanceA constant reminder of death, naturally caused to those in the vicinity of a funeral home, is bound to have a depressing effect upon persons who have sought a quiet street and established it for a long time, and tends to impair right to enjoy life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
Williams v. Montgomery, 186 So. 302 (Miss. 1939)
