Death notices January 1 - 31, 2020 - (normal obituaries not related to the virus)

Friday, March 20, 2020

Obituaries are condensed biographies of people's lives, written by the people who loved them.

Like a memorial service, they tell us things we may not have known about the person, and may leave us wishing we had known them better
