the secret to a great eulogy is to live a good life [Mar. 21st, 2006|10:48 pm]

Yesterday I attended the funeral for my coworker's husband, and it was a touching tribute indeed. My coworker was her ever gracious and poised self, still there with a loving caress to comfort other family members.

Quite a few people got up to give their respects and regards & he was indeed well loved by his family and community. He was a father figure to many, and he adored his wife. I think everyone's heart broke a bit as his son started to say he was an awesome man but tears got in his way.

Please give a kind thought to my coworker - hoping she finds strength in her family.

Sometimes I forget that life is really made up of very little, yet important moments (Sometimes I'm expecting my life needs to be made of more BIG moments - but probably half as precious)

What a terrible time for her. My sympathies go out to her indeed. It's the smallest moments that truly make the greatest impact sometimes.

I'll pray for her.
Well... Life is what you're making out of it. As long as you will think that you're not satisfied you won't be. But if you'll accept your life and start to love it to the fullest, you'll notice that those moments are there.
