The Tomb and the Dead
Why should we worry about the dead? They will go forward or stay in the ground, with no help or influence from us. We can stuff them in tight red velvet lined coffins, or in bare pine boxes, it doesn't matter. The worms will feed. The disposition of the corpse isn't the thing. What matters is the life and spirit they've lived. And the record of that cannot be changed, expunged or improved. So the dead will look after the dead, and only then can we know, this life is all we are given, there is nothing but this, and whatever we do, we must try our best to become better, to repent, and be forgiven.
