Ending and Beginning

Today I sang at a funeral for a little friend that I grew acquainted with while substituting in the little kids class at church (nursery). He died last week in an accident and...I'm full of sadness. Mostly I'm sad for his parents and for his brother--I'm sad because they miss him very much, and because he was so young, and because it's hard to say goodbye to someone....

I love the restored gospel that makes it possible for families to be together forever (and his will be because they were sealed in the temple), and that death, while difficult for those left behind, is not the end. At stake conference this weekend one of the speakers reminded us that our spirits are eons old. That we should care for and nourish our spirits as much as we care for and nourish our physical bodies. This funeral has hammered that point home even more.

I wanted to send out a tribute to my little friend. I'll miss you buddy.

So sorry to hear about your buddy. I'm sure his parents appreciate every person that shares the love of their son, with them.
