In my early 20s I worked at a retirement community. They’d wake up before sun-up and go read the obits. Seemed like some sort of fun leisure activity to them.Reminds me of my grandma and her newspaper...she would immediately skip to the obituary to see if she knew anyone. Kinda morbid..
Rumours about MY DEATH were not exaggerated...!I have what might be a different take on death. If someone lives a full long life and has enriched your life to some degree, famous or not their death (as ours) was inevitable. It then should be celebrated and shared with others who were similarly touched by their existence.
