Today, I attended the funeral Mass for my uncle Paul. As odd as it may seem, I enjoyed it. Let me explain. I am not glad he is dead. I am glad that he is with Jesus, and not suffering. As it says in the Scriptures, Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope.
