    This is true, Ritu. When the pain fades, we are left with beautiful memories.

    Ritu, there is an old proverb that people die twice. The second death is when the last person who knows the deceased passes on. That is why it is important to tell stories to your children and relatives. Keith

      It absolutely is important. I tell my kids all the time to make sure they talk to their grandparents and ask all sorts of questions, listen to their stories, so they have these as memories. I feel it keenly, as I only knew one of my grandparents personally…
