Funeral Service Attracts Celebrity-Status Media Attention

In Memory of the Ordinary Ones We Forget Far Too Often



How often have you scimmed or even skipped the obituaries section of the newspaper? It's no secret that people die everyday, however most people are not given the attention they deserve after they pass on.

One Toronto Star reporter was reading the newspaper one day and read an obituary that intrigued her. It was about an ordinary woman who lived an ordinary life but lived that life full of love. She writes:"Her life reveals that it doesn’t take much to make a difference every day — just deep, full love —and that can be sewn with many different kinds of stitches."

Too often we forget to celebrate those who achieved in ways of love, kindness, and compassion. Life is about more than just your job title, marital status, whether or not you have children, etc.

"Life’s not always about achievements." It's about so much more than that.
