“Where would you like to have the funeral?” asked Mr. Stephens. “There is an option to have it at the convention center.”
“That would be great,” said Barry. “Then we can have all his teachers and friends from school attend.”
“Okay, this is a book for flower arrangements and this one is for caskets and grave markers. Browse through to see which ones you would like,” Mr. Stephens said as he spread the books on the table.
Margie and Barry went through the books and picked the things that would best fit for Jason.
They came across the perfect casket. The casket had a storm blue exterior with a spruce blue interior and a football symbol inside, quoting a Bible verse.
After they came up with a decision, Margie wanted to go back upstairs.
“Barry, can you help me back upstairs?”
“You sure you don’t want to hang out with your mom and Burnie?” Barry posed as they walked up the stairs.
“No, I’m not up to it,” Margie said as they continued to the bedroom. “Let Mom and Burnie figure out the program for the homegoing service.”
Barry laid Margie down on the bed and sat beside her.
“Are you sure you want your mom and Burnie to do the program?” asked Barry.
“Yes, just make sure they leave room for Coach Mackey, Principal Jenkins, and his teammates to say a few words.”
