This isn't quite a sign but I think it belongs here.
Today, we received a brochure for a cemetery. The front page reads, 'Family is where life begins and love never ends. When you plan ahead with family, it's piece-of-mind for all of you'.
Yup. That's right. Dad was never reticent about giving us a piece of his mind when the mood hit him (and it often did). how soothing it will be to hear him commenting on our weight, our financial decisions or our choices of partner from beyond the grave.
