Till Death Do Us Part...
Without your stuff... you are nothing. Your stuff is the only tangible proof you ever existed. As you grow older, you collect more and more stuff. Once in a while you will come across some poor, brave soul, actually having a garage sale in an attempt to get rid of some of their stuff. People flock to them. They want to see what kind of stuff some other person now finds themselves willing to part with. Although most people fear death, most of us make sure we leave a Last Will and Testament to make sure that someone will take responsibility for our stuff once we're gone. One way to tell how much a person was loved is to see how their family disposes of their stuff after the funeral. How can the family bring themselves to sell it at a garage sale or just throw it all away? The only thing that gives them the courage to make such a decision is the thought, "If we don't sell it, donate it to charity, or throw it out, then it will become part of OUR stuff!" Thank God for comforting thoughts.
