Tears drip from their eyes-staining their cheeks and dripping onto the ground beneath them.

They watch in despair as their loved one lay in the smooth, wooden coffin.

Why must she die? How could God take her away from me?

These questions run rampant in their minds.

They fail to realize the joy that comes with such an event.

She is beginning a new life-A life in a new world.

A world where no one must feel sorrow or resentment…

That is why her corpse lay in the coffin with a smile painted on its face.
