Why Go To A Funeral

 

 

Why going to funerals and memorials services is so important:

 Dear Howard 

   As a child, my parents took me to funerals.  I can hear my father saying: it might inconvenience you, but it could mean the world to someone else.  

    This message came back to me during my father’s funeral on  Wednesday.  Despite it being 3:00 on a work day, it was humbling and moving to see the church full of people,  many of who, like yourself, did not even personally  know my father.  Thank you for the comfort you brought our family with your presence.  It meant the world to us.     Joan
