45 Word Obituary

Another “mama’s losin’ it challenge”.  I chose #5, which was to write my own obituary in 45 words or less.

birthdayObituary in 45 words.

She passed a few things before her death.image

None of which were stones or bad breath.

She disliked some, liked more, and loved a great many

And hoped that some day she'd earn more 'n a penny.

Tall, strange, and sweet, she'll certainly make great peat.

I loved this obit...I never thought of doing it as a poem - and peat certainly has a better ring than worm food!

That's great!

I'm so going for one of those biodegradable coffins! My grandpa made sure to bury my grandma in something stainless steel, leak proof, rust proof. I think I'd rather just blend in with the dirt eventually. Actually, it's all pretty morbid.
