Memorials and funerals

Increase in latter years

Opportunities to pay respects

And learn some more

About friends or family

Even though long known

Still more to discover

Always a little sad

But joyous reflections too

Marking important features

Things so individual

Passions they explored.

How often close family surprised

By the interest in their loved one

From people unknown to them

Personal networks unknown to them

Anecdotes never before heard

A rare person not valued

By many incidental contacts

Who enjoyed their time together

Learning from each other
