In the St. Aloysius Church bulletin Sunday, there was an obituary of Jesus, written in newspaper style from the "Lake Galilee Gazette." Not sure who wrote it, but here's what it said:

Jesus, son of Joseph. Age: 33. Born in Nazareth, Galilee, of Joseph, carpenter, and Mary, housewife. Joined his father in business as Joseph and Son, LLC. Graduate of Nazareth Synagogue with certificate in Hebrew Prophet Studies. Developed a following as preacher and teacher with some apparent success in healing ministry throughout our area. Became enmeshed in politico/religious intrigues in recent years leading to conviction and execution by Roman authorities this past week. Interment services held in Jerusalem according to custom. Survived by mother, numerous cousins and extended family. Remembrances may be sent to a charity of one's choice.

Anything you'd add?
