Death in the Family

With reference to my quote in an earlier blog

An "Annai" to every one ..... just not sure what to type... in summary to quote not to compare ... Einstein on Gandhi – “generation to come, people would disbelieve that such a man flesh and blood ever walked on earth”....

It was a good funeral an uncle said ... what is a good funeral? As with all my uncles that had passed on I did my part, form the bathing the body, the coffin , the ceremonies to assit, to the oil putting ceremony, upfront and tot he fore. Why? Coz I know how to do it? So in passing someone said over the 3rd prayers " Dont let him do it? He is not qualified?" hhahaah turn the other cheek in rage and walk politely away.

We even had police escort all the way to the cremation place. Rock on.

In the end I was contended with what I had contributed and he went away in peace

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.
