Quote No.11 from Encourage Yourself Encourage Others by Anne Devine.
This quote is particularly relevant now more than ever. Don’t be afraid to “Honour and remember those you love in your way.”
We are a country with a long-standing tradition of showing our respects in remembering our deceased relatives, neighbours and friends. However, Covid19 restrictions have caused funeral traditions and services here in Ireland to change.
Now only a limited number of family members can attend a funeral wake and mass now. That could limit a funeral size to ten or twenty family members only.
Relations, friends and neighbours have started forming a socially distanced line along the road side leading to the church or graveyard instead. These changes are difficult for all concerned. Respect how others cope with these changes. Allow other to honour and remember those they love in their way.
Mindfully Marie xx
