I have never thought lots about obituaries until recently. I confess that I always read the obits, mainly in the NYTimes. If anybody reads this, I do not want an OBIT (just one of my idiosyncrasies) but think they can be important to those grieving. It helps them do something tangible. My experience and belief.
Yes, I am getting older but it is not that. A friend sent me something called OBIT KIT. Very clever. Then one of my High School classmates died. (Her "obit" leads off these comments.)
In reading her "obit," I thought, I can do better than this. Here it is.
