Inspired by an Obit

I don’t normally read the obituary pages in the daily paper. But when I do, I often see a photo that catches my eye. It’s usually of a person who looks especially young to have died or who looks like someone I would have liked to know. Newspaper editors used to ask that obit photos be the most current that a family could provide, but that trend has changed. Now a 90-year-old’s obit may display him looking quite young and {Read More}
