Tough question, nonetheless valid. In my personal experience I was really glad when my mother-in-law died, this lady was pestering me and my family to a degree that I forbade her to enter my house. And when she popped off I sighed a sigh of relief (not only me, but practically everybody else who knew her). What a way to go, hey? And I’m not ashamed about how I felt, at least I didn’t throw a party, THAT would have been rude. I usually feel that there is a hole left when somebody dies, it is usually a sad event. Natural, but sad nonetheless. But that doesn’t keep me from admitting to myself my feelings when somebody dies and the world is a better place for it. Would you like to share?

Hello pillusch I have never had that feeling , and I think it is bad to have such a thing . I feel sorry for all those who die , even if I didn't like them when they were alive , but to think that they have left family, friends , lovers .. memories .. all these things make me feel sorry for them and for those who knew them

Hi pillusch, I honestly have to say that it will be hard for me not opening a bottle of champagne when and if my mother-in-law passes. She'll probably outlive me! My hubby and I have forbade her coming to our home, because she is so insulting to me. My hubby pretty much told her to bug off. I'm not the girl that my mother-in-law wanted her son to marry. Now we live in peace and happiness. Thank you for reminding me of how wonderful my life is!

My dad just recently passed away in January and he had a severe rare disease which had caused him to go blind, deaf, and become incoherent and suffer heart attacks and strokes for 6 years. My grandparents thankfully stood up to care for us while he was sick and to take care of him because it was a 24/7 watch. He didn't know who any of us were and there were times when it would take hours just trying to get him to take a shower or figure out what he wanted for dinner. It was a burden on our family physically, because you can't have family vacations and the whole family can't go out because someone has to be there to watch them so a lot of things where missed out on for everyone. Nobody wanted him to pass away but he ended up dying from congested heart failure at our home on day and everyone was sad, but in the end the family just said that he was in a better place and he wasn't suffering anymore and the family could relax now and we needed to enjoy the 6 years we had with him while he was sick because most people get 2-3 years max when they are diagnosed. So it was a sad moment, and I wish none of it happened, but sometimes its best for people to pass away.
