  1. I don’t know what to say except thank you for putting into well-written words feelings that I have experienced myself but were unable to articulate. I know where you are coming from, because I have been there too. And last but not least, I’m so sorry for your loss of a friend who meant so much to you, and I think the heartfelt words you have written here are the best tribute he could have asked for.

  2. Very well put! I often have thoughts like these after attending a funeral of a friend or family member. I too would love folks to celebrate me by dining on a really amazing plate of pasta.

  3. wow. If it wasnt 2:30am I could probably think of something more pithy to say about how much I appreciate this post, but for now thats it..well articulated sir:-)

  4. I’m so sorry for your loss, but I admire your attitude!

    A few weeks ago I attended the funeral for my best friend’s little brother which was utterly devastating given how young he was (he had taken some time off of school to work and travel, and was just about to finish his final semester) and how tragic the circumstances were (he was climbing with a friend and fell). It too brought back friends from the old days who I haven’t seen in years, and my friend’s parents told everyone to eat and drink well at the reception, as they were intending to spend that day what would have been the final semeter’s tuition.

  5. Thanks everyone for your kind words.

    @Karen, I am glad I could articulate your feelings. I had to stew on this post for a while before I felt like I could do it justice.

    @Deborah, seems fitting doesn’t it? Good food and good memories?

    @Karla Thanks! No need to be pithy here. Goodness knows I ain’t.

    @Elizabeth That story amazes me. I’ve thought about it a couple times today. I am sure everyone at well and everyone would rather have your friend’s brother back.
