Getting together for a memorial service can be a sad event. However, when you are celebrating that your loved one is no longer stuck in a body that no longer works, it becomes a joyous occasion. We had such an event earlier this month. Yes, there were a few tears that day, but mostly we enjoyed the stories of the infectious laugh, childhood pranks and endless spoiling of the grandchildren & great-grandchildren. Our family is spread all over the country but with trips to the airport & a few long car rides, we were able to be together. God is good!
