It's interesting how things always manage to tie in to each other. Today I was reading an article on talking to the dead called Faith in the Departed. Tonight I heard Kid Sister talking to our cat on her toy telephone. She was saying, "I wish I could play with you, but you died." It was mildly amusing and utterly tragic at the same time.
While we're on the subject, what is everyone's thoughts? Do you see talking to the dead as crazy? Healthy? Sinful? Logical human behavior or a pathetic attempt to grasp what we don't own? Do you believe people that say that the deceased have appeared/spoken to them? (And I am talking about people, not cats. As painful as the loss is - and my, is it painful - I haven't gone off the deep end yet.)
