Write your own obituary

We'd all like to be remembered in the best possible light after we're gone. Who is in a better position to present the highlights of our time on the this planet than ourselves?  This article, published by the Boston Globe and  linked on the weekly newsletter of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, talks about doing just that. There's even an ObitKit, to help you get started. Might make for an interesting, if somewhat morbid, library program.
