Should be required reading for many people.

Her want to not upset the others & to remain happy,not a bad way to LIVE!
I had a party of sorts at my Mom's passing,I sat with her for many weeks before I gave the notice to DNR. I ate her last lunch ,because she would not have wanted to pay that much for something & let it go to waste.
My family had a problem with me celebrating her LIFE! the jokes on them ,it's what she would have wanted. Is strange though I have been through a lot of trama ,death & hers was the one I really still have not cried about or had deep seated grieving.
Sure I'm sad ,I miss her but it did not break me down like so many others have.
Is people like her that give the rest of courage to go on. Thanks. Rick
