A solid obituary is essential to preserving the legacy of a person after they croak.
Sometimes an obituary even goes as far as featuring advice on how to get a possum out of your shed just to show how helpful somebody was when they had a pulse. Other times it comes in the form of dissing political candidates. Hell, sometimes an obituary is just two very informative words.
