Obituary Writers ... "Death is the Story ..."
Found this in USAToday (June 22, 2006), an interesting article about Obituary Writers and the difficult/comical/interesting task they have, trying to sum-up the lives of so many people ("Death is the Story of Their Lives").
As genealogists, we're often prevailed upon to write obits, while other times, we WISH we'd have been asked, when we see an obit that is full of errors.
If you have some spare time, take a look at this article. Enjoy.
