20 People Share the Kindest Compliments They’ve Ever Received
“When my mom, Cathy, passed away, one of my close friends told me that her life had been better because Cathy was in it. While it wasn’t directed at me, it made me feel even more honored that she was my mom. Then at the wake, a friend and coworker at the hospital where my mom worked said she pictured Cathy entering heaven with all the patients who went before greeting her with applause because of the person she was. Again, not a compliment for me, but it made me appreciate my mom even more than I already did!” —Jennifer, Oceanside, NY. Getty Images
