When the song ended another one began, the room and hallway filled up quickly. People made their way from other parts of the house. The chairs and coffee tables were quietly moved aside.

One of the elderly women, sat at the piano as another song began playing; there was more singing, dancing and hand clapping. People she didn’t know had come to celebrate her brother’s life. It brought a slight smile to her lips and tears to her eyes knowing that so many people could care. Before she knew it she was being pulled into a dance with Father Michael.
