My local genealogy society posted this obituary. I don't know this person but from this you definitely get a sense of who this person was.
Okay, that's a good one.
So many obituaries are very dry and almost like form letters. This was well written most likely with the flavor the man himself exhibited in life. I never heard of this man, but I'm sure I would have liked him. Many of our funerals are somber and sad occasions, but some cultures find a way to make it a celebration of that person's life.
Mine, if the folks who write it are honest, will be along similar lines.
upright and honest to the point, if you didn't understand you weren't listening !
We didn't have it in the paper but it was read at the Funeral Mass. It was about her life and the funny things she did and accomplished through life. My Brother composed it and read it. It was heartwarming and compassionate. For those that knew her there were a lot of smiles, giggles, laughs and remembrances. Which is the way it should be.
Write your own. That way it will say what you want and the others won't have to write it in a time of sorrow (or happiness)
On a serious note, I actually wrote my own obituary and provided it to a non family member for safe keeping when the time is right (up).
some similar obituaries before, but I have to admit that this was one of the best ones - at least in my opinion.

I think I may get around to writing my own in the near future.
LOLOL...thanks for sharing.
