    I'd like something shorter I think

    Something like "he's dead, right who wants his porn collection? The party is Friday night, theme is colorfully, erotic and playful, all invited"

    Something about his photo is not right. It's obviously not a pic of a 86 year old man but it doesn't look like a 50 year old photo either. It looks like a contemporary photo of a guy in his 30's or 40's. What gives?

    Putting a younger picture of him is really confusing. Like when some high school or college student dies and the only photo the local news can get is a baby picture from the family. So you watch the news and you're like, "Holy shit, why would a baby overdose on heroine?"

    Let's say the man in the pic is 36 years old. Mr. McLeod was 36 years old 50 years ago back in 1960. That does not look like a photo from 1960 to me.

    Well done.

    I love reading the obituaries---I like finding out about people's lives, what they valued and found meaningful. I even save really good ones, like this one about a woman who spent her adult life in an iron lung and wrote a book about it, this one for a woman who was part of the French resistance, and this one about a man who worked at Zabars.

    I think it's pretty common to put a picture of someone in the obit that was taken decades ago---often when they were at the top of their career.

    I would say that is a real picture of the deceased probably taken in the late 60's or early 70's.. he'd only have been in his late 40's or early 50's then.. anyways, he was quite handsome.

    it's only death dear, it is the only thing in this world that in inevitable, you can not run nor hide from it, it's coming, why be sad or morbid or anything but happy and joyful over the occasion.. while that might not work for everyone, I don't want tears and bull shit like that. I want smiling, jokes, laughin and fun
