gathering

20121208-234020.jpg

We gather here in a beachside town on Australia’s west coast to console each other, to remember our brother/son/uncle, and to honour him. An oft-repeated refrain is how glad we are for that joyful weekend this past January when we celebrated Charlie’s 80th. It’s so important that a family gather in good times, not just sad.

Don’t let it be at a funeral that you next hug your siblings and tell them you love them. Do it soon.
