How many times do we hear this, “I don’t do funerals.”  How selfish, how full of fear this sounds.  But some people have a true fear of the dead.  It’s not like death isn’t going to happen to all of us.  Funerals and memorial services aren’t for the dead, they’re for the living.  To offer consolation to family and friends who are mourning the loss of their loved one.  If you’re a person who says “I don’t do funerals”.   Think about this — the funeral isn’t about YOU, it’s about your family and friends.  It’s about you putting aside your fears to show compassion and love to others.
