We celebrated our Beloved friend James who just graduated from this earth back to the heart of God. I must say I have not ever laughed as much at a memorial celebration as I did. James’ humor was alive and well. I think it is time to rethink how we address the departure of loved ones and celebrate the graduation in death like we celebrate the arrival of birth. James’ love will live in all of us all the time.  He is a love well lived.
