The Not So Dearly Departed

“With Leslie’s passing he will be missed only for what he never did; being a loving husband, father and good friend.  No services will be held, there will be no prayers for eternal peace and no apologies to the family he tortured.  Leslie’s remains will be cremated and kept in the barn until ‘Ray,’ the family donkey’s wood shavings run out.  Leslie’s passing proves that evil does in fact die and hopefully marks a time of healing and safety for all.”

The daughter of a Texas man, who evidently was thought to have been one shitty father, wrote an obituary, part of which appears above, that instead of glorifying him evidently made it clear that he had been a rotten scumbag. The full obit can be seen here:

According to an article at CNN, her reasons for having done so were simple:

"I apologize to anyone that my father hurt and I felt it would have been offensive to portray him as anything other than who he was," she also said. "This obituary was intended to help bring closure because not talking about domestic violence doesn't make it go away!" Source: http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/13/health/obituary-charping-texas-man-trnd/

I know I have not been the best husband, dad, relative or friend but I certainly hope someone remembers me more fondly than that. once I am gone. As for my ashes, do with 'em what you will or just leave my dead ass there by the side of the road.

All the best,
Glenn B
