My mother has tirelessly taken care of Meme for the last few years, and she set a great example of compassion and caring as she served my grandmother.
As Solomon says in Ecclesiastes 7:1-2
"A good name is better than precious ointment, and the day of death than the day of one's birth; better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting, for that is the end of all men; and the living will take it to heart."
Gathering with family and friends to mourn the loss of a loved one always causes everyone to reflect on their own lives as they remember with fondness the live of the loved one who has just passed. Death and funerals remind us of the brevity of life, and the importance of living a life that brings glory to God.
Ecclesiastes concludes with this:
"Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man's all."
