    I wasn’t aware of so many different details of the Amish Funerals. Very informative and interesting.

    Thank you for sharing with all of us.

    Also, my deepest sad feelings go out to the Amish family and to the Yoders in losing their niece in the buggy accident in Kentucky. So inocently taken and so fast.

    This was very informative

    Could you recommend additional non-fiction resources about the Amish beliefs. I am doing a paper on the Amish and the Mennonites and the beliefs and customs.

    Thanks..

    Another car/buggy accident took a 17 year old Amish boys life 7-21-13 in Pawnee City Nebraska. His sister, who was also in the accident, is in bad shape and the next 24-48 hrs will tell what happens with her.

    I plan to go to one of the wakes they have planned for the boy and wondered what to expect. I heard of some Old Order Mennonites that did not embalm but rather kept the body on ice, and had wondered if that might be the case here as well.
