Cemetery stories


http://www.faultline.org/place/pinolecreek/archives/002467.html

... I find myself liking Pastor Dean-he seems kind and a little gawky, and he obviously knew and liked the lady we're burying today. He speaks of her with affection and sadness, and he speaks of his god with the same affection ...
When my grandfather died, my unchurched grandmother scrambled for an officiant for his funeral, and landed somehow on an evangelical minister out of the phone book. The burial was in an old cemetery on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi, full of headstones bearing my own last name ...
But sometimes, I admit, I miss the comfort of believing in life after death. How can you tell someone that it's going to be ok, when the person they loved has dissolved, faded away like melting snow?
