Putting "Fun" in Funeral

Last Wednesday is when my family got together to have a memorial ceremony for my uncle Wes Somers. There wasn’t a funeral because Wes’ wish was to be cremated. We had several family members there who shared fond memories of Wes, but with my family we can’t stay too serious for long. We wrote our final farewells to Wes on the sidewalk with chalk, played group games, made jokes and acted like children, just like we did when we were around Wes. This was just about as perfect as you can get when celebrating the life of someone wonderful.
