A positive attitude is the key to longevity, there is positive in anything, even Obamacare, as itRead More allows folk to find a use for spending extra money that will help the less fortunate, whether they wanted the healthcare or not. The passengers on the 777 flight are probably safe and secure in Pakistan, held as long term hostages by nefarious folk. Obama will probably win the basketball March madness, since he deems that more important than world affairs, but that's ok, at least something is being accomplished. Keep that positve attitude.

Considering how long and well he lived, we would be wise to heed his advice! Also, the fact thatRead More his son said that he will "miss his companionship" would imply he was a genuine man. I hope my children will miss that about me one day.

This has absolutely nothing to do with politics. This has to do with a good man looking at lifeRead More from a positive view point. Maybe exercise, good food, and the ability to learn new things.

I hear you Brenda! And until we truly realize that we are all here for a 'time' and not 'all time,'Read More until we begin to take a REALISTIC view and understanding of dying, crossing over, passing, etc, we won't be able to take that next step. For instance, even TODAY, with cell phones, Ipads, Facebook and Twitter, MANY PEOPLE do NOT have LIFE Insurance, Which is really... death insurance. We spend more time deciding what reality show to watch, than we do on making sure our families will be taken care of, and arrangements made PRIOR to it being 'that time.' That is one thing that should be paid for, and taken care of long before it's needed, and instead, we all go on, as if we'll live forever. Then, our families are left to pick up the pieces of our not having done what we should've been mindful of. And YES, choosing if you want to use a service such as that, is a part of that equation. And just for the record, I don't watch t.v.... reality or otherwise, I DO have life insurance, and my wishes are in writing in a legal format. Alas, I wonder how many of these 'contributors' can say even that? But we are not here to judge or condemn one another. We're here to uplift, inspire, motivate and appreciate. And again... whether you understand someone's stance or not, at least have the grace to allow them to have it, and make it in peace.

Rants go on and on here. Dr. Death was the wrong guy to follow as the Poster Child for this cause.Read More People want dignity when their life ends, only to find the insurance company standing by the plug ready to pull it. I have seen many times, as recently as this past December, the insurance company wanting to withhold care and having the families told that they need to make sure things are in place for this persons death. But wait, they are here today, giving meaningful interaction with their families. Until the PROFIT motive is removed from end of life decisions who can you really trust? Dr. Death was denounced by almost every expert, association, and crusader in this cause. If you read what he authored, and watch his taped interviews you will see what a real crack pot he was. Good riddance to bad trash. Good luck in finding a real leader for your cause.

I am very saddened to hear of Maureens Passing. I remember her well from my days working at BurtonRead More and subbing as a para pro in her classroom. Her passion for reading and writing was well planted in every student she has had at Burton. I'm glad to have known her and will remember her always. Terri Rospierski

I was shocked and saddened of the loss of Maureen. Although she didn't see me, I saw her at PetRead More Supplies Plus a few days ago. I, too, was a Para Pro in her classroom, and she was also my son's 1st grade teacher. My best to her family. Helaine Simons

Ms. Simon was my first grade teacher more than 25 years ago - and she remained the one who perhapsRead More had the greatest impact on me that I can remember all the way through graduate school. She was one of the most encouraging teachers in my life and the lives of so many others - and she's the reason I kept reading even when I struggled. When I learned about her death, I spoke with two people who were in her class with me at Burton in 1984 - both of whom remain among my closest friends - and we all were deeply saddened. May her memory be a blessing. David Goldenberg

Thanks to you, we will make a point of visiting the Field of Honor to pay tribute to the fallenRead More soldiers. I wasn't sure what we might do, but now I know. We must never forget.
