Do you think Marge wrote her own obituary or did someone else? Did this cross some of your minds? The obituary is fine ..............
But my question to you is have you taken time to at least draft out your own obituary? OR are you going to leave that to someone else to write it? This will be in a time of grief, why burden someone with this assignment at that time. So write it yourself and make sure that it is accurate, factual with the information you want future generations to read and know. Have you even thought about it yet? Is it particially written? It will always be in draft form because you are continually updating it as the years go by. Where will you keep it? Someone else should be aware of it and know where it is when the time comes that it is needed. Who is that person? This does not have to be the extrator/trix of your will, it could very well be a friend. Think about it now NOT later or when it is too late.
Yes, as young as I am, I do have my obituary in progress and a will complete, grave site picked out and almost paid for. I am prepared even thought I expect that I will be around another 25-30 years or more.
