I came across these two obituaries in the local newspaper today:
"Uncle Jack" age 94, traveled many miles during his career and lifetime. On December 8, 2009 he took his final "road trip" and is now in heaven playing baseball with his friends.
"Auntie Gay Nell" moved into a new home and embarked on a new adventure December 7, 2009. She was joyfully received there by her Lord and savior, Jesus Christ and her mother and father.
I can't believe I actually read the obituaries, (I must be gettin old). I really don't have anything to add. Just found them "interesting".

Obituaries such as these are interesting, chiefly( I think) for revealing the pain most people feel when confronted by their own mortality but which is disguised by painting a pretty picture (such as a small child might devise). And I suppose nobody wants to appear heartless or unfeeling by leaving out the fantasy of choirs of angels etc, especially in communities where dogma holds sway and hellfire threatens!

I have learned while traveling in this blue ball we call Earth that people rather hear a pretty story than the truth. I mean, it doesn't only happen with religion, it happens with everything. They rather have a pretty lie than the truth.
