Rest in Peace

A gentleman in our town died this week. I was trying, unsuccessfully, to come up with some words of comfort for his wife and children, who are grown.

I passed the store that one of the children owns, along with his wife. The sign out front, which is usually adorned with some philosophical comment or notice of an upcoming event, bore these words:

"He is not dead. He is alive in Christ."

This family was not in need of words from me.

Rest in peace, Ralph.
