A friend sent an email to me containing a scanned image of an obituary from the local paper. Neither of us knew the deceased....the reason for sending it is because of one particular sentence in the obit;
"The family respectfully asked in lieu of flowers that memorial contributions be made to the American Cancer Society or to the campaign of whoever is running against President Barack Obama in 2012."
I did a Google search and found the original obituary online and determined that it's true. (Unsworth Obit)
I was reluctant at first to blog this, but since the family published this in the newspaper -and online to boot- I decided to put it up.
