November 24: Memoriam

A celebrant quartet, three sects comprising,
United by their love for the deceased,
Sent offerings of ancient words arising,
In celebration of her life surceased.

A choir of friends, their voices raised in song,
Gave of their music, hallowed ministry,
While consecration with congregant tears
And laughter celebrated memory.

A heartfelt homily, solemn communion
Of which all hearts were welcome to partake,
Clasped hands, sang harmonies, joyful reunion,
And blessed by sudden sun through clouds opaque.

In lines of your experience I read
A life well lived- O Sainted Aunt, Godspeed!
