O.K......I admit it, I have started reading the obituaries in our daily paper. I think people can be separated into two groups.....those that do.....and those that don't. I'm a do....and actually enjoy doing this little task daily.
I come across old friends I've lost track of over the years. Old neighbors from long, long ago and many, many other interesting people.
In fact, there are quite a few I really wish I would have known while they were alive.
There was an article in today's Wall Street Journal about the writing of
"obits"..and how some people actually "TELL THE TRUTH" about the one's who have passed. You know the one's....who are tightwads, selfish, quarrelsome, nasty....the list could go on forever. However, in the majority of "obits" the loved one is KING OR QUEEN FOR A DAY and most of us leave it at that.
I'm actually thinking of writing my own "obit" before I pass....that way I have control ON THE WAY OUT!! haha
