Goodbyes Were Said Today

Monday, April 02, 2012

My daughters now have closer on the death of a friend. We attended the funeral today and all things considered it went well. This was my oldest daughter's best friend since grade 1. The family asked her to be one of the pall bearers and she handled it well. I think that one of the elders in the group saying that taking the sad feelings with you out of the cemetery holds the one leaving us back from their journey to the beyond.

I think that now we can work on healing the hurt left behind.

Thank you all for your support during this time.

    I know this was so hard for your daughter....I am glad that you (and she) were able to remember this young lady. Death is never easy, but as others have said, the closure can really make a difference in working through the stages of grief.

    Wishing you all the best!

    We certainly know where your dear daughter gets her strength, she has a great role model in you. Maybe now there can be some peace for everyone involved.

    I have read a lot about funerals, what they mean and how they help. That really helped me when my parents died and as a church janitor I have worked at many funerals (we donĀ“t do it like in the US at all, it is all in the church and the coffin is closed.

    Funerals are really important for the living left behind, I am happy to hear that you all had that closure!
