Secrets rarely stay secret forever.
In the aftermath of Prince’s death, some pretty ugly rumors have surfaced.
Just like they did when Elvis died and when Michael Jackson died.
The very private lives of the deceased are no longer sacred.
The same is true of us.
When we die,
the hidden things will get exposed.
Our dresser drawers,
Our computer history,
Our credit card balances,
Every corner of every closet will be exposed.
Loved ones and strangers will sift and sort and dig and
ultimately judge us by the contents of our treasures and our trash.
I know this because I have been the one to sift and sort through the
stacks and shelves of dead men’s things.
I have buried many who were close to me.
They all left behind stuff that tells a story about the way they lived.
The choices they made.
The secrets they kept.
