Kleenex

When my nephew-in-law died not long ago, someone called my sister-in-law and wanted to know what he could do to help. He did not know how to cook to bring food. He could give money, but he wanted to do something more. SIL told him to bring little packets of kleenex to the celebration of life. They put the kleenex out on all the tables.

Sometimes I feel like a big dummy when I go to those things. Maybe this might work for some people.

1. That's a great idea, my dear muriel99...

People need kleenex when they go to memorial services. There's always tears at those.

It sure would help. And you're not stupid!

2. That's a good idea...

little individualized packets are just the thing. have baskets of them around so people can get at them and have enough for all attendees to have three or four packets.

4. Oh, yes. That was lovely.

Sometimes what seems to be a trivial thing is actually very important.
