Celebrating Life

The passing of a family member takes time to process. Over the weekend, my uncle passed away after a long battle with cancer. We knew this day was inevitable, but the news still came as a shock. With the funeral falling on a Wednesday, I had the joy of talking with HR on how to take funeral leave. When dealing with the loss of a loved one, it is quite difficult to read the callus policies of corporate America. Thankfully, they found it in their hearts to give me one day to travel back home for the funeral even though the policy stated otherwise. I was overwhelmed by the attendance at my uncle’s funeral and it made celebrating his life rather than morning his loss a little bit easier.
