is painful (physically, emotionally, mentally)
is finger pointing
is name calling
is loss of perspective
is gaining perspective
My stepfather died yesterday, and I'm still processing, as I'm sure the rest of the family is too. However some people believe this is the appropriate time to opine their feelings about what others did or didn't do. Now is not the time for such squabbles, and please keep things in perspective.
All of our experiences were different, but valid nonetheless and should be treated with equal respect.
I love church signs. Here is some advice from one that we could all use right now..."Keep your words sweet...You may have to eat them." My own little caveat to that is...don't make them too sweet, they may make you (and others) sick.
Rest in Peace, John H. Gilbert: Marine, Son, Husband, Father, Friend
