The contemporary obituary is no longer filled with Victorian cliches and endless listing of accomplishments. Instead, modern obits are written in everyday conversational language, spiced up with humor, quotes or lyrics. This book includes samples from 20 neighbors and acquaintances ranging in age from 19 to 80+. Three chapters full of writing prompts help you get started in the art of this humble story telling form. Come create a fulfilling life-review that is more like a memoir and less like a resume."
