It's never nice to have the memory of losing someone you care for stuck in your head. When you think of Edd, don't think of his death, think of all the happy memories. It's said a lot but it helps us move on. And it's hard to but he wouldn't want us to be miserable; I think he would want you especially to smile at the good things you remember. That doesn't mean you forget about it but take some good with some bad so you don't dwell on it constantly.
I'm glad my mother's one wasn't open casket When they asked me "Don't you want to see your mother one last time?", I nearly lost it This was pretty much my reaction After seeing her fight cancer and fade away in the hospice, I didn't want my last memory of her to be in a casket Then again, this was 8 years ago. Edd's loss is still very recent. But the pain of losing a loved one never truly goes away. The best thing to do is to keep them alive in our memories, that way, they will never truly die As long as Edd's World continues to spin, Edd will never die And as long as I remember my mother and preserve my memories of her, she will never disappear
