Have you ever touched a dead body?
November 5, 2007 8:38pm CST
I've known people who have touched their dead relatives in a coffin and they said they felt hard. At my father's funeral I couldn't bring myself to touch him even though part of me wanted to I just couldn't do it. I loved my father dearly but I couldn't touch him. Have you ever touched a dead body? What was it like for you?

My beloved mom passed away in my hug. My younger sister and brother left for their supper in that very moment. I was the only one who accompanied her for her last departure. I did some chanting for her during that heart breaking moment. I kissed her and rested my face on hers. I still could feel the warm sensation of her cheek even though this happened eleven years back. I was at ease as she could pass away peacefully. Her body still warmed when the rest of my siblings returned home after half an hour or so.
