Today’s Pickles cartoon features a conversation between grandson Nelson and Grandpa Earl, related to aging and death.
Nelson: “I wish things would always stay the same.”
Earl: “What do you mean?”
Nelson: “I wish dogs and grammas and grampas wouldn’t get older and die.”
Earl: “Well, to tell you the truth, I kind of wish grandsons could stay little boys forever. Unfortunately, that’s not the way it works, is it?”
Nelson: “Except in comic strips!”
So, are you living in a comic strip world? Yes? No worries!
If pets and parents are aging and dying, chances are, you are living in the real world. Have a conversation about what those you love want done with their bodies when they give up the ghost.
