In the hustle and bustle of everyday living while rushing from one place to another, we manage to get things done. We then replace our mile long list with another and begin a new day, measuring our success at 65 miles per hour, talking on a cell phone, jotting notes and reconfiguring our directional gizmo so an animated voice can tell us when to turn left. We tend to remember faces, not names, because we didn't have the time to stop and talk for a moment or two. We're busy, we're on the go - no time to share a cookie and a glass of milk with a child, telling knock-knock jokes or sit and hold an older person's hand, displaying some much needed attention.
Yet, death brings everything to a screeching halt. Lists no longer matter and what was so important yesterday pales in comparison. Our cell phones are answered by friends as we become passengers instead of drivers. Mentally we have shut down and the following days become a blur. Unfortunately, we will celebrate our loved one's life within 48 hours. And later, we will sit in silence, wondering what has happened?
The death of a loved one takes time to come to terms with and the void now created by their absence cannot be captured with words. And that is why the Broecker's dedicate their time to you, at a slower pace, one that suits your needs, allowing you the much needed time to digest what has transpired, even if the death was imminent. Their time with you is not measured by a clock and there is always time to talk, to listen or sit in quiet solitude.
