Re: What Are you gonna do with it?

Yes, if the giver attached conditions then respect them if not its yours.
It is utter lack of respect for the giver to assume he didn't know what
conditions he wanted to attach to the gift.
Would you respect a giver who gave a gift without conditions then chose to

subsequently came by that gift for eternity. 
The simplest way to rid yourself of the maddening question is to give it
away without conditions and let it madden them. Look at how peaceful Herb
is about his plants and how many others are crazy over what SHOULD be done
with them.

BTW when Herb gave me Dorothy Benedict, I asked, "how can I thank you." He
