If you are reading this, I’m dead. This is my obituary written by me so don’t blame Susie. If I’ve erred, offended and or omitted apologising, too bad, I’m dead and hence don’t care. I leave behind my loving wife Susan (nee Mis) of 38 years, our beloved shih-tzu Meesha my beloved sister Helen (Dougal) as well as nieces, nephews and 2 godchildren – you all know who you are. I’m sorry dear Susie that I leave you with all the manly tasks I used to do. Hopefully some of the things I shared with you over years will help you figure stuff out in the years following me leaving you. My life was pretty mundane and uneventful. No spectacular discoveries, accomplishments nor that fleeting 15 min of fame. I will likely be remembered best for my excessive use of alcohol and tobacco. I did however try to live life the best way I knew how in the time that was allotted to me. At my insistence, there will be no visitation, no funeral service and no celebration of life. To those of you who took the time to see me while I was alive, thank you, I appreciate your time and effort. To those who didn’t take the opportunity to make their voice heard when I was alive – don’t bother now as I’m dead and I don’t care. For the sparse few that really knew me and care about my passing – you will know how to say goodbye. My ashes will be dealt with by Susie in whatever manner she see’s fit as again – I’m dead and don’t care. If anyone is so inclined – please make any donation you wish to the charity of your choice.
I’ll see you on the other side……
