When a friend died a few years back, the family asked us to prepare dinner for one of the nights when people would come over. We were happy to help and cooked up a storm and carted it over.

freebird, your initial post was great. It's something I will always remember when I see someone after they have lost a loved one. Thanks for those words of wisdom.
