A funeral featured a lot of elements that made me think of the song That Glad Reunion / Glad Reunion Day.
Looking around the cemetery afterward emphasised that, seeing friends who I’m looking forward to seeing again.
I featured a version of this by Iris Dement last year, here’s another by Chuck Nation Band, someone I had to go a long way down YouTube to find.

There will be a happy meeting in Heaven, I know
When we see the many loved ones we’ve known here below
Gathered on that blessed hilltop with hearts all aglow
That will be a glad reunion day.

Glad day, a wonderful day,
Glad day, a glorious day
There with all the holy angels and loved ones to stay
That will be a glad reunion day.

When we live a million years in that wonderful place
Basking in the love of Jesus, beholding His face
It will seem but just a moment of praising His grace
That will be a glad reunion day.

Glad day, a wonderful day,
Glad day, a glorious day
There with all the holy angels and loved ones to stay
That will be a glad reunion day.
