Show Some Respect To Funeral Processions

Editor, News-Register:I know that the employees of the oil companies have a job to do and they

are new to this area and our ways. I appreciate that and they have a job to do.

But that does not excuse the lact of respect for others.

One afternoon as a funeral procession was leaving Williams Funeral Home in Pine Grove, one of the sand trucks almost hit one of the cars. All the driver did was blast on the horn and cut through the line of cars, (with their lights on, which in this

state means a funeral and you give way to them). There are a dozen reason, maybe, this happened but it is still a sign of disrepect for the family and all involved.

When I was growing up, if we met a funeral, then we pulled over and most ot the time got out and stood by the car. It is a shame that people don’t do that nowadays. It was just a sign of respect.

2 Chronicles 7: 14 – “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

My people equals the body of Christ. United, we can make a difference in this our world – united in spirit and purpose.
