When I meet the night prior to performing a funeral I ask a pair of questions to those who survived the deceased.
First, what is the best (nicest) memory you have of the departed?
Next, that was the strongest (most important) value(s) they reflected in their life?
When a eulogy (remembrance) speech is given, it should celebrate a life well lived.
We should carry on the best of those who preceded us.
We do this by being in the lives of those around us what the departed was to us.
We ought to carry on the good works, resting on sound values of those before us.
In that fashion, we best honor and extend their legacy of warmth, humanity, caring and virtue.
The world gets better one caring and good deed at a time.
Please share the best memory and strongest value(s) of someone near and dear to you who has transited to the next level of this great chain of being.
In the golden chain of tradition, each of us needs to forge the best link we can to this chain.
The chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
Let's learn from one another and from those before us so that we may strengthen and lengthen the golden chain of humanity for the better.
Red Box Rules, TOS, CoC and the Four B's Obtain and will be enforced.

We want to work together for improvement of our human family situation.
We look forward to your contribution to this effort on this topic.
Peace and Abundant Blessings To One and All.
