Family and friends gather together to say goodbye to a good man, a devoted husband, a loving father and a playful grandfather. He lies in state, the funeral home making him look like his old self, even though he isn’t. Sad faces with tear filled eyes remember history. His passing is marked by love. We say goodbye!

Across town a young couple focuses on giving birth to the good man’s great- grandchild. With the encouragement of others they progress to delivery. Love welcomes this little child into the world. We say hello’

One leaves and one arrives. We live on a razor edge of mortal and immortal, joy and sorrow, peace and pain, comfort and conflict. We cannot have one without the other. Life goes on as it has for thousands of years.

Mortal and immortal, joy and sorrow, peace and pain, comfort and conflict, Goodbye and hello!
