That's beautiful, Ben. Your grandmother would have been very proud indeed.

Ben,

My condolences. I know how it feels and I want you to know that, as always, you have my support.

As for the soul, of course it survives, intact. As the mind gives way, often losing itself in delusions and forgetfulness, the soul is there, always, lingering underneath, no longer able to express itself through its imperfect vessel. But when one breathes one's last breath, the soul is released, entirely whole and in perfect harmony with the Universe. Your grandmother is happy now.

Matt
