What do you think about running birth announcements next to the obituaries? Now that I'm a grandfather, I realize and appreciate the continuity of our existence more than ever. Our loved ones leave us but new loved ones arrive. Life goes on.
We all try to leave a world better than the one we inherited. Even when we don't succeed, it's the trying that we want to leave to the next generation. Bringing notice of those who are departed right next to those who have just arrived to replace them, seems to me to be a good thing to do.
