Crazy grandmothers

My recent trip to Wyoming inspired this week's column.

I remember a conversation I had with Shannon Hale a long time ago after her sister died.  She told me she hated death--not because she doesn't believe in a hereafter but because the separation is so hard.  I thought of this as I wrote my column and remembered with love those who mean so much to me.

I'm not a particularly believing person. The idea of a big Mormon hereafter just sounds exhausting to me. But, I'm not really bothered by death much at this point (anatomy lab will do that to you, I guess). I tend to see it as just another part of the ebb and flow of life. I don't feel a separation because the people I love live on in my memories.
