I attended a funeral today.
Somber because it's always sad to lose someone.
But, a celebration because of the life lived.
As I sat in this lovely church
there was time to think and observe.
A sea of black, worn by family and friends
who love and treasure their memories of this matriarch.

I especially liked sitting behind the young ones,
age seven through teens, respectful
and observant of these traditions.
A somber celebration.
A smile for Sunday ...
