Memorial Mass.

Yesterday we held mass for my Uncle. It was very hard, but also healing.

Father said something yesterday at Mass that has stuck with me and really helped.

He said "the sadness we feel, the grief, isn't because we are not happy, we are happy that he is going home to be with the Father, the sadness comes from the separation we feel for no longer having him near us."

This has really helped.
