How NOT to Behave At a Funeral

The Comfort and Sweetness of Peace
After the clouds, the sunshine,
after the winter, the spring,
after the shower, the rainbow,
for life is a changeable thing.
After the night, the morning,
bidding all darkness cease,
after life’s cares and sorrows,
the comfort and sweetness of peace.

What is Hospice care?

Death is not something most people like to talk about. Thinking of the death of your loved one can give rise to many emotional and spiritual issues. It’s not an easy topic to talk about when it comes to family and caretakers. When death is approaching we either sulk in grief, losing hope, fear leaving everyone or we live bravely till the end. Hospice is a gift to help grieving families share the end of life experience with personal care. Family members appreciate the support and care given to them by the Hospice staff in facilitating a peaceful death. (more…)

As for us, death is the last thing on our minds especially when we are too busy trying to continuously achieve our goals and make our dreams come true. However, it will happen someday.

When the time comes that we pass on from this world, we all wish that it would be somewhere peaceful, free and filled with happiness. Whether we are religious or not, at one point, we will hope that we will be greeted by a higher being who will welcome us with open arms. (more…)

Each of us has different ways of dealing with death and dying. Some choose to spend some time on their own while others prefer celebrating the deceased’s life through more cheerful means. Many make sense of what they are going through by seeking songs. (more…)
