Death is not a celebration, but when we see a funeral procession or attend a funeral, we automatically feel respect for the deceased and mourn with the family and friends.
A man from Bloomington, Indiana, was caught on camera paying respect for a funeral procession driving through the city.
Witness Joy Wagler said she was driving through Bloomington when she spotted a man she did not know, stop his truck at the sight of the line of cars passing by in the opposite direction.
He then got off the truck, removed his hat, and stood in the pouring rain with his head bowed down as the funeral procession passed.
I have to give a shout out to this guy in Bloomington. I don’t know him, but he is a wonderful example of how we need to…
She was so shaken by what he had done that she shared the moment on Facebook.
“I don’t know him, but he is a wonderful example of how we need to act when a funeral procession comes through while we are driving,” Wagler wrote. “Not only did he pull over and stop, but he got out of his truck, took his hat off and stood (in the rain) with his hat on his chest and head bowed!” she continued.
She wrote how the man stood quietly in the pouring rain till the end of the procession.
“This was longer than the average funeral procession and he didn’t move until it was over,” Wagler wrote. “Unfortunately this is something that has been lost with a lot of people.” “He showed so much respect,” Wagler wrote.
She concluded saying, “It was a good reminder to me that we should never be so busy and so much in a hurry that we forget to show compassion and respect for our fellow men.”
Revelation 14:13 : Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.”
