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.
