I went to this guys’ calling hours today,
& I had this really strange feeling. Seeing the man’s body in the casket… I started to think. At one point, he was a baby. Then he grew to a boy, then teenager, then a man. Now… he’s an old man. Well, he was. Now in the casket lies a body. It no longer has a name. Just a body. Everything people remember from him, is now gone. His soul went elsewhere. Heaven? Hell? Disappeared? What lies in the casket is the remains of what once was life. Energy. A creation. A beautiful human being.
