Blessing to you all.
It’s been a while since I have conversed with you all. I am sorry about that. My father had passed away and we had the memorial service a couple of weeks ago.
My topic is the “How sacred is the wishes of the deceased?”
My father was born in the islands and he moved here in his thirties with my mother. As he had gotten older he would always say that he did not want to be put in the ground. So my sister and I agreed upon cremation. But during this time my mother kept twisting things around to what she felt was best. (My mother and father have been divorced for years)
My father was not a religious man like the way my mother is now. He believed in god that I do know, but I had found things that stirs me to think that he believed in other things as well. Like in the magical sense. So it does not surprise me that my sister and I have followed a different path.
I believe full heartedly that we had followed his wishes and at the same time we did allow my mother to do her church thing later. I of course left and my sister did as well.
I believe that what a person wishes to be done with their body after death is sacred and should be followed even if it’s against another person faith.
Do you agree or disagree?
