People don't attend funerals like they used to do. It seems, years ago, family and friends would gather at funerals to 'pay their last respects' to the person or console the family experiencing death. Not that way now! Sometimes only a 'handful' of folks gather to comfort and console families in grief. Many times the deceased are folks that have lived a long, productive life, giving themselves away for the benefit of others. Now they are just a memory in the sands of times, soon to be forgotten. They have outlived many of their contemporaries, and the younger generations 'can't stop long enough to say "thanks for investing in us".
