Well, you were right when you figured he wouldn't be able to do them this year anyway...
I'm sorry, but you don't do ANYTHING to someone else's property without asking them first. One of my neighbors washed another neighbor's car but didn't know something was wrong with the gasketing around the rear driver's side passenger door and they ended up soaking the back seat (and some shopping that was back there). You want to do something nice? That's great, but ASK first!
Now it's up to you to carry on the tradition!! DON'T LET THE NEIGHBORHOOD DOWN!
Actually I think it'd bring more hurt. The people who knew he died cared about him and will know he is gone and the lights are just a reminder of how he is dead. Although you can still argue that they will be sad without them... Sadly it's life's lose lose situation.
It was a great thing you did, and I think it makes it an even more meaningful gesture if he's just passed on, rather than less meaningful. I'm sure he has family and friends who will be missing him this holiday season, and I think it might be a comfort to them that someone thought highly enough of him to take the time to put up the lights the way he would have wanted.
You did great. I'm sure if he was alive he will be very happy. You are a good person OP.
Wouldn't you have asked the neighbour if he wanted you to do it first? ...
#48, I disagree, I think this is the kinda thing you don't ask about, because it could have been painful for the old man, to be remembered of the fact that he couldn't put them up this year. Instead, he could now look out of his window and smile gleefully. Well, thats the Christmas movie scenario that I have mind.
