Margaret E. Mohrmann, MD once said, “A funeral is more than a forceful reminder that the life of someone we have cared for is over. It is also an expression of the continuation of that person’s life within the ongoing lives of family, friends, and community. It is an expression of the robust interconnectedness of us all.”
In this column, Dr. Steele desires to illustrate the profound truth of Dr. Mohrmann’s observation “by telling the stories of two funerals that [he] conducted some years ago, when [he] was a parish pastor.” One about Floyd, the other about Ed.
