Song played at funeral by The Band Perry
If I die young, bury me in satin. Lay me down on a bed of roses. Sink me in the river.
Lord, make me a rainbow. I’ll shine down on my mother. She’ll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors.
The key is learning to sit with your pain and pause. It is difficult to pause and just ponder. Finding the right support for your mind, body and heart can be challenging. But I encourage you to sit with and decide what need.
I follow @lifedeathwhat on instagram and below is what you’ll find on the website. Discussions around death.
#LifeDeathWhatever is an initiative to redesign the dialogue around death and dying, to open it up and to find new approaches to this important subject.

What resulted was a video game, “That Dragon, Cancer,” which takes players on a journey they can’t win. In this beautiful talk about coping with loss, Green brings joy and play to tragedy. “We made a game that’s hard to play,” she says, “because the hardest moments of our lives change us more than any goal we could ever accomplish.”
