When she mentions looking forward to seeing someone why not ask her about that person? I don't think you want it hanging on your conscience that you were right but you managed to make her waning time on earth miserable.

No, it's never been my intention to make my parents' life miserable. It's not in me to want to make anyone's life miserable. I was just trying to find ways to respond if the topic ever came up, which it probably will at some point.

Smile, nod and change the subject.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.
