What Will They Say April 21, 2011

I went to a funeral last night. It was for someone I did not know personally. The funeral home was packed with family and friends. It was an open casket, only the second I had ever been to.

The deceased’s boss was one of the eulogizers. He spoke without notes, straight from the heart with a surety and confidence that in itself was comforting. He used adjectives like, honorable, hard-working, loyal, trustworthy, “his word was his bond”.  He painted a picture of a God-loving man whose family came first and the rest of the world was a close second. Those same adjectives were repeated over and over with each speaker.

A fine husband, father and grandfather has passed over and is now on that part of the journey that we all will take one day.

I wonder what words will be spoken about me when I pass.
