Healing thoughts aren't always for the 'victims'. In the wake of every death there will be a number of lives who need 'healed.'
My grandfather died a couple months back. I was one of the ones in the room when they pulled the plug on his life support. He was beyond the reach of any healing thoughts at that point, but the room was full of other people who really did/do need the compassionate, healing thoughts, and who have yet to grieve, let alone heal.
My sympathy/compassion/caring "healing thoughts" don't go to those who have died, but to those who have lost. Including the Guest.
