The funeral went well…

Can death be joyful?

Thanks for praying for my Dads, “Celebration of Life” service, it went very well. All the right people showed up. Not a big crowd, maybe 30 people. It was a celebration! The stories I shared were mostly funny but informative as well. They got to know my dad,  Marvin a little better. It’s truly a joy to understand the gifts of Life and Death from God’s point of view. It’s so cool, that for a lover of God and follower of Jesus, death is just a temporary separation, nothing to fear, everything to rejoice in. The church where it was held was fantastic. Because my dad was a member of that church and had been attending there (whenever in town) for something like 75 years they gave us a great facility to use, all set up, a wonderful pastor to lead it, printed bulletins, music, video projection and capping it off a great meal for everyone who came. Central Community Church of Wichita is an excellent church.

  1. There were 15 at my dad’s burial and the same number at my mom and stepdad’s funerals. 30 is a lot of an 100 year old person!

    Celebrations of Life are so important for closure!

    Much Love,

    John and Bobbie
