What do you think; Is it appropriate to ask a person questions about how their loved one passed if you don't know?

Hey Karla,

personally I hate answering that question but I know others are quite happy to talk about how they lost their loved one. I don't actually mind people asking but I also hope they respect my right not to answer them. I think that it depends to on how the question is asked. If someone asks out of sheer curiousity then it can be hurtful but if someone seems genuinely caring then that is different. I suppose their is not right or wrong way to answer your question.
