Twin functions of funerals

Lovely send off for Uncle Lemuel in London today. The funeral highlighted the twin functions the event serves in our communities – celebration of a past life and a reconnection with lives still present (such as long lost family and friends). We may dread funerals, but they serve a real purpose in helping us move forward, perhaps in renewed directions, with the support that is all around us but is seldom drawn upon, and simply to reconnect with roots. Each One Reach One.
