We really didn't plan it at all, just couldn't stand it one more minute. I couldn't have listened to all the sickening sweet "Oh we missed you Thursday". We just riped it off like an old band aid. Yes there were many phone calls (leave the machine on). There were visits (keep the drapes shut), you can predict when they will come. After about 6 months it all stopped, not even an invitation to the memorial. It might not work for everyone and they may push it one day when some CO comes around shedding new light on the topic. It is awkward when we see JW at the mall or a restaurant but it would have been anyway. NMKA
