The Mefite Library: Books By Mefites

The Mefite Library: Some of you might know that I'm a book editor.

He was in his armchair, watching a John Wayne movie. It could have been so much worse.

Another "Best of Metafilter" request. So, my grandfather died today (as I anticipated a few months ago), and one of my first reactions is to look to Metafilter for comfort and guidance. I've found a few relevant threads on my own (just taking a cursory glance at ColdChef's posting history helps put death in perspective), but I'd appreciate other mefites' help: what are the most helpful, or comforting, or grounding threads you've read on the site that have to do with death and grieving?
