From the local newspaper's obituary page:


Everyone is invited to bring a "cold one" because if it were you, he would.


You can't make this stuff up.

Don't know anything about the deceased, but his kith and kin sound like people I'd enjoy sharing a "cold one" with

I do believe this - small town obits as well as other articles are priceless.

yes indeed. picture a beautiful cemetery in the deep south... spanish moss hanging down from the trees... wonderful outdoor service and then as soon as the flowers are taken out of the casket spray & roses given to family... you hear "beep beep" and trunks start popping open. ice. coolers. adult beverages flowed at the cemetery. yup... can't make this stuff up.

I still shake my head and laugh over the various bits and pieces of small town obits...
My formere assistant when i taught was a Brit...
She would be amused at he obits with pictures from when the person was much younger.
Also the way they say soembody died is funny here...some died or passed away...
Then others flew to be with the angels.
My fav was the oen where the pastor said Jesus hammered teh last nail in the mansion and turned to the master and said,
"Well, its finished, let's bring him home."
No, we don't make this stuff up
