Funerals today: from grief to joy

Your story proves that the way we view funerals

today has radically changed, and for the better! There is a

swing-shift from the old tradition of mourning which used

grief to illicit the healing response to the new

"tradition" which allows for the celebration of a life

well-lived. One has to wonder why this turn-around. Have we

become like Vikings "Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow

we die"? Maybe that is a far better thing than having to

make dead-man hair tatting to display on the mantle!jajo
