Courage In Loss
My cousin, Levi, who I love dearly, lost his mother recently to a heart attack. She was only 62 years old. When I heard he was planning to speak at her funeral, I knew I would give my key to him. As soon as I saw him in the funeral home, I gave him a hug and said, "I have something for you…put it in your pocket…when you get nervous, just feel it and it will give you courage". I don't know if it helped, but he made us laugh and cry that day with heartfelt stories of his mother and memories to take with us.
