If only we thought to think before we speak. A dear family friend died on Sunday and my daughter from WaiKatore rang to let me know early that morning. We chatted about the family etc. and how this person meant so much to our family. He was our rock when our husband and father died years ago. I sent away a card and koha to his wife and family next day. Daughter rang last night to fill me in on the funeral preparations. 'I went to see G today mum"", she said "and you know, he looked better dead than when he was alive".

Joybel,I can see why your daughter made that statement.The dead person can sometimes look so relaxed and serene,laying there,while the world is so sad,mad and confused all around them.

Forgive people for you are right sometimes they do not think before they say and it comes out all wrong but they are only trying to show their "aroha". Peace & Love to you & your family.
