> Dear Beret:
> What a beautiful man. We celebrate his completed life knowing that
> continuation happens in his spirit
> which is in us and us in him.

> Dear friends and colleagues,

> Grace and Peace,
> ON THE DAY I DIE
> On the day I die, when I'm being carried
> toward the grave, don't weep. Don't say,
> 'He's gone! He's gone." Death has nothing
> to do with going away. The sun sets and
> the moon sets, but they're not gone.
> Death is a coming together. The tomb
> looks like a prison, but it's really
> release from union. The human seed goes
> down in the ground like a bucket into
> the well where Joseph is. It grows and
> comes up full of some unimagined beauty
> Your mouth closes here and immediately
> opens with a shout of joy there.
> Jelaluddin Rumi
> 13th Century Persia

> 11:00am before the service. A luncheon will follow in the Fellowship Room. In
