A Grateful Death By Henri Nouwen

When we think about death,  we often think about what will
happen to us after we have died.  But it is more important
to think about what will happen to those we leave behind. 
The way we die has a deep and lasting effect on those who
stay alive.  It will be easier for our family and friends to
remember us with joy and peace if we have said a grateful
good-bye than if we die with bitter and disillusioned
hearts.

The greatest gift we can offer our families and friends is
the gift of gratitude.  Gratitude sets them free to continue
their lives without bitterness or self-recrimination.
