I’m guessing this is one of the hazards of being the daughter of a life insurance man…I read the obits every day. My Mom did it everyday for my Dad, I guess. Now I do the same thing…and I’ve got to admit some of them make me so sad. I don’t even know these people, but I sometimes will think about their obit all day long.
But here’s an obit that can make even me smile and you too.
It was published this weekend in Mississippi. Amanda Lewis wrote it about her dad Harry Weathersby Stamps. Said he was a “ladies’ man, foodie, natty dresser and accomplished traveler. Talked about how he despised phonies, know it all Yankees, Southerners who used the words “veranda” and “porte cochere” to put on airs, all Law and Order TV franchises, cats and Martha Stewart. Said he hated daylight saving time, which he called Devils Time and added that the family doesn’t believe it was a coincidence that he died just before he would have had to turn his clock ahead.
His obit, BTW, has gone viral. Amanda sad her Dad wouldn’t have known what that meant, and would have probably thought he’d gotten some disease.
Now there’s an obit!!!
