The world is poorer this year. A kind, dear friend passed away on December 26, 2015. This morning, I attended her funeral, one that I think was among the most beautiful I’ve ever attended. I’ve attached a story read to the children that truly touched me and I invite you to take a moment and read it. It’s called Waterbugs and Dragonflies by Doris Stickney. This simple story sums up life and afterlife beautifully.
