I've been asked to read a poem or scripture at my uncle's funeral on Saturday. I've got some good candidates, but I'm struggling with theme.
Do I talk about how death comes for us all eventually? That the pain of loss is the price of joy? The best way to honor the dead is to help the living? That life is an evolution and no one is ever fully understood?
He and I weren't especially close, but he was good to me and I want to honor him. So do I speak of him, the audience, or Life itself?
@mpjgregoire@Modern_Industrial@thurloat Yeah, share a story or two about your uncle. If you think it'd help to give people a way to "carry on his legacy" you could mention that you think he'd appreciate if people did X. That might be hard if you weren't super close, though.
