Yesterday at work, was a Memorial Service, as it was a smaller group of about 75 we had the service in the Student Ministries Room. After the service they did a small reception in the same room. The kitchen for this room also serves as the employee kitchen, so I was able to stand behind the curtain and hear some of what was said by the family & friends and watch the video.
Before the service, I was giving the pastor that was doing the service, a bad time. We kibitz back and forth all the time. After he went through the door to do the service, I looked at the ladies I work with and said, “When I die, I want him to do my service. So remind my hubby of that in case he forgets!”
One of the ladies, looked at me and said, “Of Course!!”
So I told her, “Because he does such a great job at it!!”
Then she looked at me and said, “And because of the working relationship you two have – that is just a given!”
I laughed and said, “Well, you know, the other 2 Elders can jump in and speak, but I want him to be the main one!”
That got me thinking, as it is inevitable that I will be leaving this earth, sometime, that I should start preparing my requests for my memorial. If I get it spelled out, that would take the guess work and worry off my surviving family members. They wouldn’t have to think what I would like, but would know what I would like.
So, I had better get to working on that!
