Some people hate funerals. I find them comforting. They hit the pause button on life and remind us that it has an end. Every eulogy reminds me to deepen my dash, that place on the tombstone between our birth and our death.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Eulogy. Praise of a person who has either the advantages of wealth and power, or the consideration to be dead.
