When you're friends with a blogger, you know that your conversation might end up as a post. Talking this morning to my friend Nancy (also a blogger, by the way), just such an anecdote surfaced . Nancy's mother Bev passed away last fall in her mid-70's. She was a lively, highly-accomplished dynamo who managed everything, including her death, in a no-nonsense way. During her last year the family gathered often and had many good times together.
If you know of other such practical legacies, do share them.
