Technology is Awesome!

About a week ago my Aunt Minnie passed away. She was 79 year’s old and died of an unexpected heart attack.

My family originated from the middle of the country but years ago Minnie moved to Nevada. For my 84 year old Mom that is a 24 hour drive or a $500 flight. It seemed that she wouldn’t be able to attend. Then the church and my cousin did something miraculous. They used Facebook Live to live stream the funeral so my Mom, her siblings, and my Aunt’s other distant relatives could mourn her loss.

Sure technology has its downsides. Many of us spend more time than we should and there’s always stories about the downsides. But in this case, for my family, technology was truly miraculous!
