Just seeing their faces brought us comfort.
Feeling the importance of being with family,
who share our love and emotions.
Also, many neighbors and others expressing their memories and sadness along with us.
How kind and yes, brave they are to come to such a sad occasion,
with the purpose of consoling others.
A big thank-you to all who shed tears with us and gave us hugs and kisses.
"Better it is to go to the house of mourning than go to the banquet house, because that is the end of all mankind; and the one alive should take it to his heart....The heart of the wise ones is in the house of mourning, ..." -Ecc7:2, 4.
