This last Thursday we went to Preston for Grandma Clara's funeral. It was a a celebration of her life rather than simply a mourning of her passing, and definitely had her personality. There were many tears, but also many smiles and a lot of laughter. You've lost that Loving Feeling rang out at the graveside as she had requested. The funeral was full of song and joyful celebration of a wonderful exemplar and matriarch. She will be remembered with fondness.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
