That is a superb obituary/piece of writing, Stuart, thanks for posting. I encourage all to read it.

Thanks for sharing Stuart. This is very timely for me as I just yesterday watched the great documentary 'Obit' which is about the NYT obituary writers. It's a great watch and is not as depressing as one might assume it to be.
Info here:

And you can watch it on Amazon Prime here:

It's also available on Kanopy, an app/roku channel that you may be able to access through your local library for free (I highly recommend Kanopy, lots of other great films there as well.)
