It’s never too late

I’ve often wondered at funerals if the departed loved one was aware, when he still walked the planet, that he was much loved and appreciated as per the eulogies.
Wouldn’t it be great if he/she did?
Praise is most appreciated when it can be heard by the person who has earned it, not when it is recited in a eulogy after he/she has passed.
Similarly, bouquets of flowers smell the sweetest when they are held in the hands of the recipient, not stacked by his/her coffin or on top of his/her burial mound.
“I love you” and “You make me proud” etc are the sweetest music a person can hear.
We must change the way we have been doing things and speak out now before it is too late.
Or we will be beset by regrets and guilt for the rest of our lives. We have to continually do what makes sense, our traditions notwithstanding.
