Read the Obituaries

~~~

The obituaries are a good reminded that this life is temporary. Your days and time on the earth are numbered. Remembering this can help you live better.

  1. It is surprising that some people do not feel the need to make an obit. Or they publish so little about how that person lived his life. When I would sit with families and arrange the funeral services I made it a point to ‘help’ them to think of things their loved one liked in life, what they enjoyed in life. One family said “No, there’s really nothing to add…she didn’t really do a whole lot.” I thought, “REALLY?” Too bad.

  2. So true. More is learned in the house of mourning than the house of feasting.
