Virna, this is a very compelling read. Death is such a common part of life, yet at the same time it's foreign to us. We see others go through it but we don't know what it's like and there's no textbook that tells you how you should behave. It's really hard to tell what a funeral should or shouldn't be, but no matter what, it will be darn hard for the loved ones.
I was drawn by the storytelling. You've put in a lot of thought into this post. Check out my comments on the chart.
