Funerals – Sadness and Business

A funny thing happened on the way to the funeral – going to attend a memorial service presents a business opportunity when directions are requested at the cemetery business office.

There is something inherently moving about a gravestone covered in leaves in the fall of the year.

Families and bitterness – someone will express displeasure with a jilted lover attending a service of dubious religiosity and unknown allegiance. So few attend to commemorate a wonderful life.

Families and loss – remembrance of those gone before and thoughts of how it could have been. Children scattered to the wind and over the mountain.

When people we know pass from this fragile existence, it reminds us of His plan if there is a plan and our own fragile existence.
