So often people label funerals a “celebration” of life but often times Guy says they don’t feel very celebratory. Yesterday he went to John Witherspoon’s funeral and he said it actually felt like a celebration. The family asked that people not come dressed in black, but wear colors because John was a colorful person. Stories were being told, there was lots of laughter and love in the room. Guy says he woke up in a somber mood, but after the service his spirits were lifted because he felt like John was really celebrated and honored. He actually said it was more of a “fun-aral” than a funeral and he wants more to be that way.
