A Word to the Living

It is one of the tragedies of life that we place on people's graves the flowers we might have given them when they were alive. We keep for their obituary notices and for the tributes paid to them at memorial services and in committee minutes, the praise and thanks we should have given them when they lived. Often, we are haunted because we never spoke. A word to the living is worth a cataract of tributes to the dead. (William Barclay, The Gospel of Luke (DSB), p. 290) 3/Jan/2010 15:33
