Well, I was just using that as an illustration...odd as it was!
I thought that another way of explaining it is like this: when you walk through a graveyard and read the epitaphs of people that died young, even though you never knew them, you feel a loss somehow. Anyways, I've just been feeling sad on and off all day. I can't seem to shake it.
Thanks for your reply Kitt! You're a doll as always!
