R.I.P

Sorry for the confusion i caused in 'Super Quick Post', I didn't mean i was out celebrating the fact that my friends dad was dead!
I was celebrating his life on the anniversary of his death, which is what we tend to do here (here being the UK), this normally involves going to the pub and raising a glass in his/her name. In this case it was a game of darts as well, as her dad loved darts.
I hope that clears the matter up (Bee).
Any questions in comment box please!

  7. None of us will escape this fate, so why be gloomy? Remember the good times, and laugh about & with the person gone.

    Good post Claire.

  10. I wouldn't think it odd at all to celebrate someones death. It happens all the time. Just depends on your belief system I guess.

  12. I have lost quite a few people in my life (meaning many close to me have died). I think the UK way--is the best way to deal with death. Celebrate the person's life!!
