    Lynn’s Notes:

    There comes a time when we all have to try and explain death to our children. My granddaughter, at the age of 5 is very curious about what happens after you die. She has asked me several times where I will go, and now that I’m close to finding out, all I can say is…I’ll still be right here beside you. I can only hope that it’s true!

    Losing someone is never easy.

    With age sometimes the pain at someone’s death may be a little less because we realize it’s part of life. But I don’t think the realization is ever easy.

    No honey, it’s never easy, no matter how old you are.

    My Dad died a month ago just a day short of his 85th birthday. Last Saturday we had the memorial service and buried his ashes. My children are all adults and they didn’t take it well.

    It seems to be this way: A fast and sudden death is easier on the person passing away as they don’t suffer as much. It’s harder on those who they leave behind who didn’t have time to prepare their minds and hearts for the loss. But a lingering illness like cancer is harder on the one who passes, they have pain and suffering. But a bit easier on those left behind as they do have time to prepare their hearts and minds for it. Either way death is hard. It helps when you have faith in the Lord and a home in heaven. You KNOW you will see that loved one again.

    We all have to remember that not everyone grieves in the same way.

    Death is the final bad joke on mankind.

    Mom died four days before Easter at the age of 97. It was the first Easter she got to spend with Dad in 43 years. Not to mention her parents and all her brother’s & sisters.

    Those who say “its just a comic strip” fail to see that there are strips like this that are not smarmy nor snarky nor asinine nor intend to make everyone say ha ha ha ha. Life is not always about puns and one-liners. Families deal with real, difficult scenarios.

    Elly’s words would not have comforted me as a child. I’d be afraid that I would suddenly be zapped off the planet. I hated that "Now I lay me down to sleep " poem.

    We should care because we know who this person IS? When was the last time “Mrs. Baird” appeared in the strip??
