I am honored and humbled

The mother of a friend died. I've been asked to be a nurse at the funeral. I am so humbled by this request. I have been to funerals before and observed the role of the nurse but never participated myself.
My friends moms illness was sudden and quick. A matter of weeks between diagnosis, coming home, going into hospice and dying. I sat with her mom several times when my friend and her family were having difficulty juggling their schedules and trying to keep mom home and tended to.
Tomorrow I will go out and buy my white uniform, shoes,stockings and nursing cap and prepare a bag to hold supplies to nurse the family through the service. I can't tell you how touched I am.
I'm an atheist and they are aware of that but I've always held cultural death rituals in reverence after being a hospice nurse years ago.
