Have you written your obit?

Paula Davis, funeral director for Heritage Funeral Home, is on a crusade to get people to write their own obituary. In my Sunday story, she explained one reason to do it:

“You spend days planning a birthday party or a vacation,” she said. “And then all of a sudden a death occurs and you have three or four hours to get this obituary written because we have to get it to the paper. If you have to start from square one, that is not enough time.”

Have you written your own obit? If yes, send me an excerpt and I'll put it on the blog.
