When readers make me smile

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!
