Comforting the Bereaved

AT THE funeral of my friend’s mother, I happen to capture some gentle human gestures that provide comfort to the mourning family.

In times of mourning,

comforting words from a friend

help lighten the weight

of the loss of a loved one.

A simple pat on the shoulder,

a tight handshake,

a warm embrace,

and the mere presence of friends,

help us let go of our departed loved ones

and surrender them to the creator.
