Losing someone close

A dear friend of mine lost someone close today.

Lot of people gathered, singing praise of the deceased and about a life well led.

Forced me to turn back the clock and think about my grandmother’s death.

She went through a horrible time during her last few days, her children fighting with each other about who should be taking care of her.

No one wanted the responsibility.

After she died – everyone was talking about how great a person she was, and how blessed they were to have someone like her in their lives.

Raises one question: if they felt that way, why did they treat her like some filth few days before she died?
