Just helped with a funeral for a 97yo parishioner. Lay-read, served as pallbearer, and corrected errors in the service. It was a nice service and well-attended, but I was saddened by the fact that the oldest people there were in their early 80s, that she had no living family, and that all the photos of the deceased were from the past 15 years. Nothing about her early live whatsoever. Maybe I do want children after all… and maybe I DON’T want to live past 85… things to think about.
