I have become familiar with mourning lately. I considered going into the stats here. I could list the various hospitals I have rushed to and the ones I have slowly meandered towards, delaying the final goodbye a little longer. I thought about discussing the funerals I have been to, why Ave Maria is better than Amazing Grace (sorry mom), why I prefer an open casket formal wake to a vaguely sad potluck/memorial. I have delivered eulogies for friends and uncles and in-laws and grandparents and a house. I am not here to list my dead people credits. I am here…
