I just hope you don't have special needs kids or soembody who is seriously ill

I think you are really missing the point, Les.

This thread is about dealing with grief by using humour. There is no intention to trivialize grief or hurt.

It's about how we deal with the worst life can throw at us. That's my understanding anyway...
