The sting of death is unavoidable.
Funerals are the worst. They’re one of the saddest days in your life. Someone you loved or care about has died, and as with death there’s nothing you can do about it. Everyone around you and yourself are crying and you just want it to be over because no one really wants to be sad, especially like this.
Sorry if I just depressed you, but unfortunately there’s not really a good way to start talking about death and funerals. But just because it starts out sad doesn’t mean it has to end that way.
While it’s true that funerals do mark a person’s death, they can also be considered a celebration of life. You spend time with others reminiscing about the things that person said or did that made an impact on your life.
