It's always great to hear from readers. It means the world to me that they take the time to share their thoughts. On Sunday, I heard from several readers regarding my column on why I love reading obituaries.
One of the emails I received was from a 52-year-old woman who had lost both of her parents.
"I read the obituaries every night, I always have, and I especially enjoy the ones that tell us about who the person really was. ... A LIFE is a life, and needs to be shared because of its beauty."
I couldn't agree more.
She ended her email:
"Again, keep up the good work. People who LOVE people are enjoying what you do. You are a lucky girl to be able to pursue your passion."
She's right. I'm lucky that I'm able to do what I love, and I'm so grateful for that!
