Two burials

Two burials this week. One had 5 people at a graveside; the other had a standing-room-only church. Both were remarkably the same: love, grief, a serene if sober hope in the words of faith from the Book of Common Prayer, and even some laughter in the tears of thankful remembrances of lives perceived as gifts from God. Only some externals differed; both services were the same.
