Yeah, kind of reminds me of a long line. Only when you get to the end,
you are not at a water fountain.
I can remember my grandparents always reading the obituaries in the news paper.
It seemed they knew everyone that had died. Their conversation would go something
like this : you know jessie fay died....jessie fay, you don't mean it.....yep, says funeral
is monday....who's officiating....rev dave.....is burial at golden pond.....yep...do you
remember when jessie rode that pet cow and fell off and broke a leg....yep...
Now I look at the obits.
When you get to a certain age, you DO know almost everybody that dies! It's horrible. There have been at least 15 of my classmates dying in the past couple years. i lost my best friend 5 years ago and another one just last year. I don't even want to read the obits in paper anymore!
Yep. Well I do read the obit's in more than one online newspaper because if I didn't,
I would never know. In fact, I do that almost every night online. I started doing that
a few years ago because one day I was browsing google, decided to type in some names
of old friends, and sure enough, there was an obit of a fellow I knew for many years. IF
I had known, I would have sent condolences or perhaps even attended the wake. He
had been deceased for several years. Similar thing happen with an uncle that I rarely
saw in my life but he was still my dads brother and I didn't know he had died until I
happen upon it in a search.
