365 days of gratitude

His son wanted a reading for his father’s funeral.

The father was a farmer and I found one the whole family agreed was just right.

It was Shut the Gate by Norm Murray, from his book Exit Lines.

Norm has been a funeral director and celebrant for more than 20 years, the book is a collection of his original verse based on the lives of ordinary people.

Tonight I’m grateful for the words that allowed a son to farewell his father so appropriately.
