A time to die – a slight change in obituaries

Russell Limprecht (@russellreno) called my attention to an “In Memoriam” message that is different from those we have seen before.

Megan Lee Meadows In Memoriam

If you didn’t catch it immediately, let me help you find it.

In the past, when a newspaper would publish an obituary of a person, the picture would usually come from a professional photographer. For example, my father’s obituary included his latest picture from his church directory.

But Meadows’ picture is a self-portrait, taken with a smartphone.

Times are changing.
