The depth of your grief is also the depth of your potential joy.

And 'someone to stay alive for' is also a thing that matters.

But again, only you know what and when is right for you.

I agree that the note should be signed -- and, if the signature alone won't clarify who you are, add 'your neighbor in Apt 27', or whatever.

Sorry, I'm tired. I was thinking that at the time it took 60 votes to confirm; but you're right, at the time it took 60 votes to move the vote, not to confirm once the vote was called.

Morning, I am so sorry!

At least she got twelve years of purrs and treats and love. The frightened muddy kitten in the parking lot probably wasn't expecting that; and was ecstatic that she got it.

"Finders keepers" is an attitude that I thought had mostly gone out of style.
