My brother, in the last 27.5 years of my life, taught me a number of things, and one of those things is to always be grateful for what you have. To show gratitude is to be happy, and we should always readily express that gratitude to the ones we love because our relationships are what make our lives so rich. So that’s why I have spent the last day fervently writing thank you cards, e-mails, and messages to everyone who has given my family condolences, flowers, food, money, cards, gifts, and their precious time during this difficult period. Every time I do anything now, I always think in the back of my mind if Ed would approve of it. In this case, I think he would approve, but he’d also remind me that I am being anal and rushing too much. Can you really rush gratitude, though?
