A Stranger’s Memorial Service

A few weeks ago, I went to a memorial service for a man who I didn’t know.  I went, because my mom knew him and didn’t want to go alone.

I had no expectations and thought I would be bored.  However, I was impacted by the service.  I listened to the people talking about this man’s character.  The message was the same from each person.  They said he had a “heart of gold” and he made a huge impact on their lives.  They spoke with great emotion and sincerity.

I felt a desire to change my life, so I could have such an impact on the world around me.  I wish I had known this man and I wish I could talk to him now.  He must have been a wonderful person.
