Been thinking as year 96 creeps on: What would I like my obit to say? I’ve had an exceptional life filled with memories and friends. While I don’t plan to die any time soon, DNR is writ large on my papers. One by one, qualities essentials to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness grow more distant. Life is still good and I love it, but my bag is packed and I’m ready to go.
The girl from 313 suggested I write my obit. Here it is: Been there, done that. So be it.
If you must have a text: I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing. 2 Timothy 4:7-8.
