Thank you for the condolence examples. I find condolence notes some of the hardest and most important writing I do.

To bring a bit of levity to an otherwise serious topic - I share the National Weather Service's stance regarding winter storm naming. Just say no! I will not participate in The Weather Channel's attempt to make itself more important and dominant in the weather news arena by allowing spreading the abomination that is winter storm naming.

Jennifer, thanks for stopping by and commenting. Also, thanks for pointing out that the National Weather Service does not name winter storms. I had not realized that, and I wonder how they refer to them.

I have to say that I prefer names for momentous things like storms. "Superstorm Sally" will click for me much longer than "the huge storm that hit the East Coast at the end of October 2012."
