Consider

This post has nothing to do with law, but it has everything to do with family. Today I attended the funeral of a former work colleague and close friend of the family. She was also a wife, a mother, a sister, an aunt and a godmother. Her untimely passing has left a bereaved husband and daughter, and a hole in many lives.

The funeral was not, however, entirely a sad affair. The numbers at the service were testament to a life well lived, and it was good to join so many old friends and colleagues in celebrating it. A friend may be gone, but she will not be forgotten.

In the end, though, it is to the family that my thoughts go: consider what they have lost before pursuing your petty squabbles.
