Be (Very, Very) Prepared

I used to work as an event planner.  Most of the events I helped people with were happy ones- graduations, weddings, birthday parties- but funerals and wakes were also part of the job.  I actually felt most useful on those events, because most people need more guidance and care when they’re going through grief.  One particular Monday, I fielded a call from a woman who needed help with a funeral.  I used my most supportive voice: “When is the funeral going to be?”

“Well, we don’t know yet.  I guess probably Friday, but we’ll see how he does this week.  He’s not actually dead yet.”
