For your benefit

We will bring more people to work in your honor than there are duties or a need for.

We will serve wonderful food, all donated, and so much that we could feed yet another army.

We will dance for you. We will perform for you.

We will make you laugh and forget why you are here in the first place.

We will bring all of your friends - even those you don't know together, in one place to honor you.

We will give you hugs, and just before we release you, we will give you more.

We will collect. Things, and funds and stories and joy and memories for you to open when you need them.

We will remind you why you chose to come back after the one you lost moved on.

We will be here when his loss haunts you, and his memories start to fade.

We will never let you forget what he meant to us, and what you mean to us.

For your benefit we will be all you need, and more than you could ever want.

Updated: The benefit I am speak of we organized this past Sunday for my former boss's family. He passed away last month suddenly from complications relating to Guillain-Barré syndrome. Our community is very caring, and the turnout, and the love and support still brings tears to my eyes.
