I appreciate your thoughts on this subject, Cathy. I also have been reading obits. They reveal a lot about the the person. I read the obituary of a dear friend and learned many things about her life that I never knew. She lived life to it’s fullest. She’s an inspiration to me more than before. I appreciate when people take their time and money to tell things about their loved one that very few knew. The obits are very informative and enlightening.

So sad to hear of a departed friend months or years after death whose family could not afford to have it in the local paper. But the family did post it on Facebook. But not everybody uses Facebook nor checks every acquaintance who posts.

Agree with you completely ms. Cathy.
Obits are worthwhile reading. Lots of folks in the Great Generation passing this time of the year.
