An advantage to having a "death blog" (as its nicknamed in the newsroom) is the conversations that now happen around my desk.
This morning, we talked about proper funeral attire, and my colleague Gina Boysun told me that three of her male relatives wore their funeral suits on the plane to their grandmother's funeral in central Montana.
They didn't have to use suitcase space to pack the suits. And the suits didn't wrinkle.
Good tip, Gina. Thanks.
