WAILING AND LAUGHING


Now, you may realize that in those days in Middle-Eastern custom, people usually wailed loudly at funerals. I grew up in a Greek Orthodox country and until today the custom requires a loud and visible weep for the dead. Can you imagine how perplexed I was when I watched people laughing and joking at the funeral?


It was my first funeral, in Arkansas, an eye doctor, Dr. George Stumph’s funeral, and they began to tell silly stories of what Dr. George did or said, laughing. Now, after so many years here and many funerals I participate, I understand – sharing memories, and treasuring the precious moments whit our loved ones...and hey, we believe in Jesus power of resurrection.
