After you’re gone, people will probably forget the exact things you said to them while you were alive, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel.
Unfortunately, when people write obituaries that sum up a person’s life they’re often just a chronological list of factual details of their lives such as where they lived, where they worked, and how many children they had.
While those facts are important, they don’t really explain the type of person the deceased was or how they made people feel. An obituary for fireman William Ziegler of New Orleans, Louisiana has attracted a lot of attention for how it hilariously summed up the life of a man who was a real raconteur.
Zeigler’s daughter, Sharah Currier, said that he used to read funny obituaries to his children, so they decided to write one that would make him laugh. “He would have loved this,” she told the Times-Picayune. “He probably would have forwarded this obituary to us.”
Zeigler began his career as a volunteer in the U.S. Navy.
He then continued his life of service by joining the fire department.
Ziegler’s children believe that he’s in heaven with his alcoholic dog.
His children end the obituary stressing the fact that he’s actually dead.
You can read the whole obituary at the Times-Picayune.
