Hope to see you at this session on Writing Your Own Obituary

The session is a presentation and workshop, with tips and suggestions;
plus some time to begin your own obituary and to share brief comments about obits you have read or written.

You may wish to make a list of "facts" needed for your own obituary, before coming to the workshop.
Or just come to listen and learn...
bring your friends, too.

Write Your Own Obituary
It is a gift to your family, facts can be at hand, tips, methods, problems,
