Several years ago, my father passed away after a battle with cancer. For his funeral I wrote and read a short story to share what he meant to me. What I learned as the years passed, is that the story written for him may have value to others that have experienced loss.
We all go through fires, floods, and storms, just like the tree in my story. When we frame our loved one’s journey in this life through the lens of purpose we can create an opportunity to celebrate the life they lived with us. We can also rejoice at the life they are living now.
