What does this mean ... I read from Reader Digest a quote given by a person giving his reason for dislike a house on sale: "The family dog, long departed, was stuffed and sanding next to the fireplace. RIP sparky." I can't understand several things in this sentences. 1. long departed 2. was stuffed 3. RIP Sparky.

long departed = died/passed away was stuffed = process where you preserve an animal so the body does not decay RIP sparky = Rest In Peace (Sparky is the dog's name)
