No disrespect meant, so I’ll pretend this is fictional.
Exactly two weeks after my induction by fire into the role of “funeral director” comes the second funeral. This time not only a memorial service but also a committal. But that is the pastor’s problem.
The family consists of a sister, a domineering, religious mother, a bewildered adopted daughter – living with the sister, a distraught daughter – living with the biological mother, a dramatic girlfriend nobody knew of and an estranged, agnostic father.
Each loved the deceased in his/her own way – conditionally. God loves them all His way – unconditionally.
