...I can think that, well... my voice will change, I'll be John Hurt on this song, I'll be Skip James on that one, I'll be Tommy McClennan on that one. How many voices you got? They're going one style, one kind of sound from their area, and singing in their voice - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 97

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:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obit_(film)

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.)
