Winston Churchill designed his own funeral, which took place at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. The dome was the model for our US Capitol building in DC. I was privileged to visit St Paul’s several years ago. At Churchill’s direction, at the close of the service, a bugler positioned high up in the dome sounded “Taps”: “Day is done, gone the sun”…but then immediately after another bugler sounded “Reveille”: “It’s time to get up in the morning!” This was Churchill’s testimony that at the end of our lives, the last note will not be “Taps,” but “Reveille”!
