although i do not practice in anything, i was rasied in the church. my papaw was a pastor and a very well known/well respected one in the nazerene domination. the funeral was filled with upbeat, live music from a band.. drums.. guitars.. everything.. i was so proud to hear that my papaw had touched so many lives and impacted them in some way with his kindness and example.
i may not be a faithful church goer, but i certainly hope that when i pass away, that i have somehow reached out and touch someone just by being me. i try to make people feel special and important.. and it was so wonderful to see that someone i care about so dearly was thought of in that light.
