Funeral

We went to a funeral today. It was a funeral for a good man, a man that was too young to die. He and his wife are friends of ours. He had a disease, a disease called cancer. It ravaged his body. He fought long and hard, he was a warrior. He never complained, he never felt sorry for himself.

After years of treatment he was declared cancer free. Then last November another tumor was found. Again he fought, but he was weary, his body was tired. It was time for him to go.

So, we went to a funeral today. It was at a beautiful glass chapel on a hill. It was a somber service yet a time to celebrate his life. The chapel was packed, standing room only. A testimony to what kind of a person he was. He touched so many people's life's and they came to say good bye. His family and friends have suffered a great loss.

Good bye dear friend.

I'm very sorry for your loss. We lost my uncle in a similar situation the week before Christmas. Sometimes they just can't fight anymore and they need to go where they don't have to.
