Sensei says funerals are not really for the dead. “They are for those left behind. The dead are long gone by the time a funeral is held.”

It’s necessary for me spiritually as both a witness and a testimony to comment on my son’s private funeral. The ceremony which I was not invited to attend and the public memorial  service which I was advised it better for all concerned if I not attend. 

Sophisticated  Pagans grounded in the loftiest vain philosophy along with the religious practioners honed in the finest traditions of men > both sides steeped in the rudiments of this world  were there gathered in one accord at my son’s funeral. All like minded in union sharing in love and in great comfort. Knowing my dear son is at home with them in altruistic pluralism. 
These kind felt me undesirable.  Praise God!

2 Corinthians 2:16 King James Version (KJV)

16 To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?

And my final comment:

Matthew 8:22 King James Version (KJV)

22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

Amen! Maranatha!
