Writing Prompt #6: Write a character’s obit

Louise-Cloutier-Obituary2

“Remember me as you pass by,
As you are now, so once was I,
As I am now, so you will be,
Prepare for death and follow me.”

Obituaries can say a lot about a person: who their parents were, who their relative are (plus if any have predeceased them), where they were born, who they married (if they did at all), where they worked, affiliations they had, hobbies they enjoyed, their religion, how they lived, and of course, where and how they died.

For this writing prompt, write a paid obit (a lengthy obit) for your character — you might be surprised by what you discover about your character.
