Rob commented on Communicate Beyond the End

I vaguely remember I Robot, Marc, but mainly the look of Will Smiths' increasingly worried looking eyebrows. But I get the gist of what you're saying. My human experience is that it's hard enough right now to get conversations going between the dying and the remaining.  Perhaps a little distancing, as you suggest, might help...

Rob commented on Communicate Beyond the End

Marc, that's a lovely idea -i like it very much. It is very personal and special.

It also connects to several others here. See mine, for example: https://challenges.openideo.com/challenge/end-of-life/ideas/i-remember-when

I think there is an overlap between several ideas submitted, all with a focus on stories from, or about, the person now gone.
All the best, Rob

Rob commented on How to Remember the Dead

RS86, check out my idea in this same category: "I remember when...". See if you find some similar thinking. I do.

And I'm sorry about your father. It's bloody hard on everyone. And most of us aren't very good at dealing with these things. Why would we be, when the world seems to want to carry on as it was...?
