"From death’s perspective, there are no differences between people.
There is just the person, always dear."
Today we pause and reflect.
We laugh and cry.
We mourn for knowing, but not fully knowing.
We celebrate a life well lived.
We thank God for heaven- for peace- for love.
We are held in the arms of our Father.
And though our faith runs deep, death is heavy.
We sit beneath its weight.
