S: This has been a very bad week.
J: That is putting it mildly.
P: We need to do something to lift our spirits.
S: Such as?
P: What would he do if he were here?
M: Probably tell us one of his stories to illustrate that death does not matter.
J: Or tell us about the next life.
S: Yes. That he would.
T: I do not think this is appropriate. He is only recently killed.
M: Thomas, we are just trying to remember him. Grieve his passing.
S: What would you say to him if he were here right now?
T: That is an odd suggestion.
S: Perhaps. But what would you say?
T: I would want some proof it was really him?
M: And he thinks we are inappropriate.
S: What if he showed you his wounds? Let you touch them?
T: Yes, that would probably convince me.
B: Hold on. I am trying to write all of this down. It would be a good end to this story. Something to remind us of the hope he represented.
