Life Stories (Obituaries)
"We have funerals because someone lived and their life was worth remembering. Every culture known to humankind has devised rituals and ceremonies to deal with the troubling facts of mortality: that love hurts; that a death in the family, like a birth, must be observed; and that grief is the price paid for that love."
