Heather, Logan, and I were in western Oklahoma Wednesday evening and most of the day Thursday for the funeral of Heather’s cousin who died unexpectedly last Saturday. Funerals are a good thing. We honor the deceased and the survivors and the family gathers to mourn their losses together and strengthen ties. We also get to see people we haven’t seen in a long time. After the funeral, when everybody goes home, is when the real work starts for those most affected. They have to figure out what they are going to do now and tomorrow, and the day after that.
