Caleb apparently wrote this article earlier this morning. It is one of the better pieces he has posted recently, (not that any were bad, just that this one was extrodinary)
…the life we have chosen for ourselves.
The points he brings up are very true as I spent a good part of this New Years Day working with two families that experienced the death of a loved one in the last 24 hours.
I’ll call it, Death does not take a holiday

Is it strange that I have told my family that if I did near a holiday I would like to be frozen and not buried until a few weeks later? If I could figure out a way to not let anyone know I passed then it would be great. Holidays should be a time for celebration not mourning.

While I appreciate the thought, I’m not sure I agree with the premise. Death is the only thing we are guaranteed and when you chose to love someone, you agree to mourn them when they leave you, regardless of when or how. Unfortunately , pain is part of life.
