Hi, Cov...

Morbid perhaps... however, I find myself grateful for the awareness about some of the people that had meaning to me in my life...as well as the fact that I have learned about some of the others too.

I don't find this thread morbid (and I have lost a couple of friends recently) but I can thoroughly recommend the obituaries in The Economistfor well-written, often fascinating, views of the lives of those who have passed.
