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.

She was a sweet lady.
I think a lot of her son, Andy, who I was in the cancel choir with way back when...
