This morning I experienced my first Methodist funeral. Celia Lovell was a lovely lady that just so happened to be one of the first people that I visited in the hospital after coming on staff here at Broadway. While I don't know that family that well, I got a sense of great love and family from the conversation that I heard and was a part of. This funeral was very honoring and peaceful. I was blessed to be a part of it. As I look to the inevitable coming funeral of my sweet mother (she is still alive, but with Alzheimer's disease), I hope that hers is as honoring and peaceful.
Rest in peace Miss Celia, and enjoy being in His presence.
