I realized today what the purpose of a funeral is.

You’re spending all day with family and friends, constantly sitting on the sharp reminder that your time together is dwindling.

The purpose of a funeral isn’t to mourn the deceased. The purpose is to bring those still alive closer together. To wake them up from their slumber and supercharge their compassion and appreciation for each other. To motivate these acts of love while it still matters.
