Talking Dictionary127. In Praise Of Dear, Departed Dad


127. What would Mark say at his dad's funeral? His dad was very old. He might die any day. Mark wanted to say something nice about his dad. He wanted to say something memorable. He wanted to say something that showed his love for his dad. But what could he say? His dad was a nice guy. He was a hard worker. He was a good husband. He was a good father. That wasn't much to say. That wouldn't even fill up one minute. Maybe he could tell an anecdote. That would work. But he couldn't think of an anecdote. He couldn't think of even one little story to tell. He hardly knew his own dad! He called up his dad. "What do you want me to say about you at your funeral?" he asked. His dad said, "Don't worry about it. I already wrote something. Just read what I wrote." 1.8
