I have heard of three deaths this week – none of them are people I know well so I am not grieving a loss, just sad for those affected.  But it made me think of funerals and what usually happens there – flowers, words, celebration of someone’s life – when they have gone!
If you have something good to say about someone say it to them now
If you would buy flowers for their funeral, buy and give flowers to that person now
If you are proud of who they are or what they have achieved tell them now
If you think you will miss them, tell them what they mean to you now
What have you got to lose?  (apart from them wondering if they are about to pop off!)
