When is it time to “Let Go”?

I opened facebook today, and found several people posting images of Nelson Mandela.  Two days ago I told my husband that I think we’re going to “lose” Mandela this time.  After I left facebook, this morning, I turned to CNN.  Yesterday, June 10th, a friend of his stated that Mandela’s condition was ‘unchanged’, and it’s time to let him go.

When is it, time to Let Go . . . of a child, spouse, parent, grandparent, friend?  How can we best serve them?  Again, my favorite Ram Dass quote comes to mind:  “We are all just visitors here, walking each other home”.
