Music for the Dead, and for the Living

The funeral home had offered to play a generic mix  of classical music for Jason’s visitation evening.  That wasn’t going to work for me so I made a playlist and asked them to play the CD on repeat.  It played for three or four hours while we stood there and wore our strong masks as we greeted the hundreds of people who traded their Wednesday for us.

I made myself listen to the whole playlist on Monday…and again this morning at 2:30am, so please pardon any errors.
