A Clever Look

When I looked at this obituary, I was surprised that it was as long as it was.  I have read many obituaries in the Sunday paper but they are never that extensive.  I suppose it depends on what the family wants it to say.  Many families do not want to open up so much information to the public.  Although from reading this, I see how it is helpful to add about religious backround and achievements of their life in order to celebrate them rather than mourn.

The obituary was very well-written given the cercumstances that nobody wants to read about death (at least I hope not).  The interviews were great and showed who the deceased person truly was to all of those around her.  This is a great lesson in how to interview for profile pieces because it is important to understand that you shouldn't just interview the key person to get all the interesting facts.

Back to what my classmates think.
