The optimism of obituaries

Some people read the sports
Some people read the political news
I read the obituaries.
They have always fascinated me 
Because they are so freaking optimistic for a death announcement.
It’s like the people who wrote are trying to let the reader know that it’s okay.
They were really happy when they died.
And I guess they were.
But we will never really know right?
Sometimes there are really young people in there
And I always wonder “Were they happy?”
Try reading the obituaries while listening to music.
It makes them really meaningful.
And maybe even happy.
A celebration of life.
