I'm guessing you don't know what it feels like to be left behind. Why do you guys have the right to judge?
I guess I'm being hypersensitive.
i think when you have kids under the age of 18, it's pretty fucked. i'm sure there are some parents where you're probably such a shitty parent, death allows the child to only remember the good stuff, but it also leaves a trail of trauma for that kid for the rest of their life. especially if they were too young to understand the parent killed themselves because they were generally depressed and not just mad at the kid. other than that, i don't think any of us can reasonably tell someone life is going to get better if they just live to make the rest of us happy. it's sad. and yes, it really hurts those of us left behind, but it's not our life to live.
Always go with your gut.

Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
