Love Ones Personal Wishes

Most funerals I have been to have been very dignified. Why? This is because everything was laid out as the deceased desired.

I remember when I was younger folks fought over who should take what flowers... I felt awkward.

It's wisdom it putting things in writing. That way the family will not fight over things... House? Car? Bills?....

Then my sister turned it around and said ...."let's also remember the wonderful life that came in the world today"... Let's celebrate them and the birth of a new baby in our family....Let's remember precious memories of the dead and alive.... I thank my sis for making us…

Common Denominator - Loss of Love Ones

Although many of us have different belief systems, we have one thing in common- death. It is our enemy. I love to have comfort from friends and family but I get the greatest comfort from the wonderful promises in God's word the Bible. I can't wait to the time when God will do away with death and pain. In addition to all the suffering and injustice....No politician( or any other human being) can do away with death but God can and he will....
