I would like to thank you for posting the memorial to your husband. It helped me to understand the cultural differences which have created hurt feelings in my bi-continental family. My half sister (dual citizenship France/USA) was furious at me for not crossing the Atlantic to attend our father's funeral. Half sister just died in her sleep the same day as your husband. Her spouse has been deluging me with pictures of her grave, covered in flowers. It's gruesome, but now I understand that there seems to be some type of celebration of death in Europe, whereas you have shown me that a LIFE is to be celebrated even when it has gone! That is truly a gift you have given me.
