I just got back from my Aunt’s funeral; that was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do.
It was a beautiful ceremony. I’ve never been to a catholic funeral; it was quite moving.
One thing that really stands out in my memory; I’ve always pulled over to allow funeral processions to pass but I’ve never realized just how much that means to those in the procession. I even saw city workers on the side of the street stop working and take off their hardhats until we passed. That meant quite a lot to us. And it just goes to show that civility and respect still exists. 🙂
