2016 the Year in Memoriam
I don't know what is it about me, but I have always been obsessed and intrigued with the year end memorials. I did have a grandfather that was a mortician and his place of business was my playground as a child. Maybe that has something to do with it.
The other is finding out about a death that may have escaped the daily reading of news here and there. Of course there are celebrity deaths, those are hard to miss. But for me the really intriguing deaths are of people, not celebrities per se, but those that made a significant contribution.
The Oscar Award show will have its flash by of those in the business that have passed. But my favorite is this year's Charlie Rose In Memoriam. He manages to pack into his sixty minute show a goodly number of people, famous and not so famous, who left us this past year.
I don't have a lot of time left, but damn I would love to make some contribution that would give me a mention on the year-end-memoriam list.
