I just returned from a week in Salt Lake City and Provo. My wife’s nephew passed away at the age of forty-four, and we attended the funeral. I cannot remember when I felt more spiritually fed. The Spirit was strong, and we were comforted. It was not a secular funeral. It was a gospel funeral, a Church meeting. Mormon funerals are filled with hope, and a genuine testimony that the life after this one is real. Over the last fifty years I have noticed that because the saints have such a strong faith in the teachings of their church, and are not just going through the motions, their funerals are very different from others.
