Info in Obits Helpful, but Sad

I just finished updating our family tree with info gleaned from the obituary of several recently departed individuals. It's always helpful to find out missing details of the departed's birth, parentage, etc., but lately I've begun to feel like some kind of vampire. So bloodthirsty for the details all the while sadly remembering the person who may have passed too soon (in my opinion). Some of the people I never knew and never met and they've been dead for years. But they were all related to some people I DID know and DID meet and DID love. Hopefully, in 2013, obituaries I research will all be from 50 years ago or something. R.I.P., loved ones.
