In lieu of flowers ....

Check out that line in this obituary. Thanks to Joyce for sending it to me. I almost peed my pants.

Theodore Roosevelt Heller
Theodore Roosevelt Heller, 88, loving father of Charles (Joann) Heller; dear brother of the late Sonya (the late Jack) Steinberg. Ted was discharged from the U.S. Army during WWII due to service related injuries, and then forced his way back into the Illinois National Guard insisting no one tells him when to serve his country. Graveside services Tuesday 11 a.m. at Waldheim Jewish Cemetery (Ziditshover section), 1700 S. Harlem Ave., Chicago. In lieu of flowers, please send acerbic letters to Republicans. Arrangements by Chicago Jewish Funerals, Douglas MacIsaac, funeral director 847-229-8822,
Published in the Chicago Tribune on 10/10/2005.

God bless ya, Ted. I hope an occasional letter to the editor advocating a liberal view of the world will suffice in my case. Although I can make acerbic comments to my husband (the Republican), anytime -- and that will be a lot of fun. Consider it done.
