GOOD FRIDAY in CONTEXT of MONA BECKNER'S FUNERAL & GRAVESIDE (published 4-15-2022; article #314)


Today, Friday, 4/15/2022, Passover begins at sundown. It is also Good Friday. The dates match in some years.

The context is Jesus' resurrection of Lazarus. In reply to Martha, “Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?'" (John 11:25,26.)

Papaw Marion Ferrell (4/13/1880 - 11/21/1970) was born on the date, in 1880. He lived to age 90.

The visitation and funeral for aunt Mona Beckner was on 4/13/2022. Visitation was 5 to 7 PM. The funeral was at 7 PM. My wife's aunt Mona lived to age 100. Family and friends who attended remember the tribute and honor to aunt Mona. Sad and joyful moments abounded.

Rose Mortuary has a video tribute and a photo tribute, for aunt Mona.

The graveside service for aunt Mona was at 1 PM yesterday. The clouds and cool wind became sunny and warm. Family and friends who gathered said our farewell – until we meet again.

We stayed, after the ceremony, for a long while. Family gathered at the Beckner home – where the devoted son, Mike, lives alone now. There is sorrow. There is joy.


Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life. He asked Martha if she believed him. I am sure that Martha did. Aunt Mona Beckner did. She enjoys the heavenly bliss of many, who have gone on before her.

Do you believe? Resurrection Day is coming!
