Short Stories Can Say a Lot

Sometimes the shortest stories are the most memorable.

Two things from the funeral I attended recently have stayed with me.

The minister shared that the deceased, 30 years old, had moved away from the church for a number of years in his 20s. "I don't know why," the minister said to those gathered. "I don't care why. It's none of my business. It's none of yours, either."

The deceased, who returned to the church only months ago, recently went to a restaurant and asked the host to seat him where he would be waited on by the server "most in need."

He was.

And he left a $100 tip.
