Daniel Cirucci contributes a brilliant commentary to The Philadelphia Inquirer titled Funerals needn't be so deathly. Dan is a PR guru, colleague and friend. He reflects on the trend toward "life celebrations." I like the idea of a life celebration personally. It makes mortality easier to digest. He says:
Death just ain't what it used to be.
So why not just forget about death altogether. Let's dwell on life and just party on - even in the presence of the corpse. Makes sense, right?
Dan - I love ya buddy! Yes, let's party on! Celebrate life!
