Like newspapers, obituaries have evolved


For myself, I could go beyond the facts of my existence as a journalist, editor and writer, husband and father, reader and golfer, by making each of those aspects of life into varieties of human greatness. Or, I could stick to the facts.

Anyway, now you might see the quandary of proceeding with my obituary. Being able to write anything you want, fact or fiction, provides a lot of freedom and turns the project into a difficult undertaking.

And every time I see our news clerk around town, I have to explain that I’m still working on it, and vow that I definitely will get it to her before it’s too late.
