Today our church held it’s first funeral, and the building we held it in was decorated for the Autumn with sprigs of wheat. It reminded me that Jesus said: “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.” As much as we will miss our friend, we know where she is, and we know that she is more alive now than ever before.
