Junie's Place: Memorial service

Memorial service


  Today we attended a memorial service for our neighbor's father who passed on earlier  this week.

  I didn't know the old gentleman at all but my husband had met him.He was 96 years old and had lost his wife of 69 years a few years back.

Clearly, he was well thought of and well loved by a lot of people as the chapel was packed full and lots of good things were said about 'Mr Smith.' The words, "He was a good man," were often used in describing him; the highest of compliments, IMO.

This is one of a few songs that were chosen for the service and the best one.

~I recently posted a vid of this Brooks and Dunn song but this is a different one with the lyrics.
I love this song!~

I agree, Junie, "a good man" is the highest compliment for a life well lived.
