Today I’m at a happy funeral. This is the funeral for my wife’s grandma, who lived a rich, full life. It’s a celebration of her life.
I worked at a funeral home when I was first married and did everything except embalm for a little more than a year. I saw plenty of sad funerals.
The one thing I hope to leave with you today is how valuable your relationships are.
Today… hug someone special.
Tell the you love them.
Call that long-lost friend.
Figure out how to forgive a grudge and start to move on.
Do something, because you don’t want to sit at a funeral wishing that you would have.

I wanted to extend my condolences. As well, I want to express my appreciation for this wonderful post. This is a wonderful way to honor for your wife’s grandmother – and terrific reminder for the rest of us!
@Walter – thank you. I think leaving behind a rich legacy is a beautiful thing, and we are all tasked with leaving behind a positive legacy (and carrying forth those left behind before us).
